Stan "The Man" Lee has had a huge impact on Marvel comics, so it's only fair the co-creator of so many iconic characters should continue to receive respect at the House of Ideas. Stan's appeared in everything from comics to cartoons, but his brief cameos on the big screen are always a treat and the ones we love the most. This week, we wanted to know which Stan Lee scene from a Marvel movie is your favorite, and one option absolutely obliterated the competition.

Stan Lee's cameo as the oblivious librarian who's totally into music in The Amazing Spider-Man took an impressive 42% of the votes. Apparently, it was so pleasing that even people who didn't like the movie ended up having a blast with the cameo (post is the Viner ZZoMBiE13)

"I really didn't like Amazing Spider-Man. Not even a little. But it did have the best Stan Lee moment in all of the movies made from Marvel properties. It didn't make up for the rest of the movie, but it was one great moment to be sure."

In case you haven't watched the scene yet or just want to enjoy it all over again, here's the clip (via youtube).

Here's the poll results.

Did you vote for the scene in The Amazing Spider-Man or did another one generate a bigger laugh from you? Don't be shy, speak your mind below! Lastly, there will not be a new question next week due to the holidays. In the meantime, you're totally welcome to send new question ideas our way in the comments below or to Gregg via Twitter.

Couldn't agree more with the verdict really. His ASM appearance was definitely the best.

It seemed a little too cartoony, but it was funny. Good choice,

I thought the mailman cameo would get more votes.

IDK, the ASM cameo is definitely the funniest, but to me, I don't think that makes it the best.

I think that Stan Lee needs a good cameo in one of the upcoming movies that allows him to interact with his characters. One like the SM 3 cameo to be exact.

I voted for the truck driver from Thor but this one is a good one too a funny one and the music the he was listing went well with the fight strangely.

The Stan Lee cameo at the wedding was a direct recreation of this scene from the FF comics, but sadly Kirby was not alive and so it wasn't as good.

@matteopg: What's wrong with a cartoony concept in a movie about a teenager who can climb up walls and fights a giant lizard?

The Amazing Spider-Man was my pick.
His Thor cameo was funny, too.

Yeah, I didn't phrase it really well. What I meant is that it felt a little out of tone, for me. But it's probably just me.

The "mailman" from Fantastic Four was him actually playing one of the characters that he created in the original F4 comic Willie Lumpkin. I'm actually surprised no one noticed this yet lol

My favorite Stan Lee moment is not from a movie. This past summer I went to Ohio Comic Con with my friend and LCS owner Crow. He was so excited to meet Stan. He not only met him he got a picture with him. Crow even put his hand on Stan's shoulder. It was awesome seeing a 60 year old man beaming like a kid with excitement. Well, Crow past away this week. I'm so glad Crow got to meet and have a conversation with his hero. Thanks Stan! You're the best!

@bloxxeh: oh no, absolutely not! Ok, it's so hard via the internet... I genuinely don't think that you sounded like a jerk :)

Also, since we're clarifying, I didn't mean to offend the movie, I actually found it enjoyable.
