Stan Lee On Marvel Movie Adaptations

Writer Stan Lee, co-creator of hundreds of Marvel characters including "Spider-Man", "Iron Man", "Thor", "Ant-Man", "Daredevil", "The Fantastic Four", "Doctor Strange" and "Hulk",  was asked which of all the characters in the Marvel Comics Universe, are most deserving of a live-action big screen treatment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Lee said that the "Black Panther" and "The Inhumans" would be among his top picks.

Created with illustrator Jack Kirby for Marvel's "Fantastic Four" #45 (December 1965), the origin of "The Inhumans" begins millions of years ago, at the beginning of the alien 'Kree'-'Skrull' war. 

The Kree set up a monitoring station on the planet Uranus, observing sentient life on Earth with genetic potential, followed by experimentation on primitive homo sapiens by splicing 'Eternals' DNA into 'Cro-Magnons'.

Their goal was to investigate ways of circumventing their own evolutionary stagnation, while creating a powerful mutant strain of soldiers for protection against the Skrulls. 

The test subjects, the 'Inhumans', eventually formed their own society, thriving in seclusion from the rest of humanity.

They developed their own advanced technology, including the mutagenic 'Terrigen Mist' which gave them superpowers.

Once led by the dethroned 'Unspoken'. the King of the Inhumans is the mute, 'Black Bolt'.

His royal family includes 'Medusa', 'Karnak', 'Gorgon', 'Triton', 'Crystal', 'Maximus the Mad' and the canine 'Lockjaw'.
