There's a moment in every Marvel comics movie where all the husbands/boyfriends in the audience whisper to their companions, "That's Stan Lee!" (The companions know it is Stan Lee, but endure this anyway.)

Even the smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy boasts a quick appearance by Lee, in this case on the arm of a woman many years younger than him.

Quite possibly he's wondering what we did: "Why is Stan Lee in this movie based on characters Stan Lee had nothing to do with creating?"

With that, the possibilities became clear to us: What if Stan Lee cameoed in every movie ever? The 91 year-old universe creator has already had cameo appearances in something like 18 movies, why not just cameo in all the movies?

Well, he actually created Groot, so his presence in the film is legitimate, I guess.
