The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo has been among us and before us, since the dawn of time itself. They are particular about who they allow into their group since they are far superior to any human or beast. Once in a great while they do allow an extraordinary human in if they see fit and there are a few reasons why the Order would accept Stan Lee.
Stan Lee is a man of many talents. He is not only a comic book writer but also an editor, publisher, media producer, television host, actor, voice actor and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics. Among his many creations are such icons as Hulk, Iron Man, Spiderman, Thor and the Fantastic Four – each with their own followers and fans. The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo admires talent and not only is Stan Lee talented but he has been known to shake things up.
For instance, he headed the industry's censorship organization which is called the Comic’s Code Authority. This is an organization that reforms policies and if there’s nothing else that the Order likes it’s humans that challenge the status quo and make a difference in the world – not to mention that the very organization itself has a “code” that must be followed, much like The Sovereign Order or Monte Cristo.
The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo also appreciates that Stan Lee worked his way to where he is now; he did not ride anyone’s coat tails or coast along in obscurity. He is well-respected and an icon that millions of human beings love and adore, which makes him someone that the Order would agree to accept into their ranks. They feel that he would be an asset to everyone, showcasing that while humans are inferior to the Order, there are a few that are worthy.
