Shockwave.com, owned and operated by
Macromedia Inc., and Stan Lee, Inc. have teamed up to bring Stan Lee's
first episodic Web animation series to life. Stan Lee, the genius behind
classic comic characters like Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Incredible
Hulk, will create his new 5-minute "Web-isodes" using Macromedia Flash
technology. According to Lee this new venture will allow the whole world to
be part of his new creations without limitations. This exclusive deal
includes Macromedia, Inc.'s $5 million purchase of Stan Lee Media Inc.
Series A stock. In a continuing commitment to bring the best games,
cartoons, and music to the Web, this deal adds one more powerful ally to
shockwave.com's on-line cartoon legion that includes Dilbert, South Park
and Dr. Katz.
