Stan Lee calls Michael Rosenbaum the best Lex Luthor

Marvel Comics' patriarch seems to have weighed in on one of DC's greatest foes. 

The Man of Steel sequel will happen, and when it does, Superman will need his Lex Luthor. Back in June, we told you how Smallville's Lex Luthor, Michael Rosenbaum, was lobbying to be Lex Luthor again in Man of Steel 2.

Rosenbaum is still on his quest to make his Luthor-shaped dreams come true, and he's enlisted an unlikely ally -- Stan Lee.

While at a convention recently, Rosenbaum got Stan Lee's signature. While Lee was signing, he also took the opportunity to include a little message, which Rosenbaum was very keen to tweet.

"The best Lex Luthor." Considering the many actors who have played the part, those are some big words. We're just not sure what the value of those words is. Yes, Stan Lee is arguably the biggest living legend in comics. He's a Marvel man, though! He's the Marvel man! This could just as easily be an argument against Rosenbaum as one in favor.

Still, it's pretty cool. Let it never be said that Stan Lee does not occasionally like to stir things up.
