NYCC 2013: Stan Lee Designs New Superheroes, You Write the Stories
You will soon be able to create stories based on characters that comic book legend Stan Lee creates. Lee will design four new superheroes for Plotagon. Plotagon is a software platform that allows individuals to create animated movies. The platform, which can be downloaded for both Windows and OS X, allows you to type a story which it then interprets and creates a movie, dubbed a “magical typewriter.”
The software is free for a basic set-up that includes five characters and six environments. You can then purchase additional characters. Lee’s pack of characters will cost $9.99 and be available in early November. In addition to the characters it’ll also have new scenes and settings to be used as backdrops.
In an interview with Variety, Lee said:
I have had great fun creating all my characters and have really enjoyed seeing my fans creating their own stories. Now, through this collaboration with Plotagon, they can create their own superhero movies.
The deal was announced at New York Comic Con.
