At Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles, the cast of Stan Lee’s new animated trilogy, Mighty 7, was announced. The Mighty 7 animated films are a projected trilogy of animated features, a monthly comic, and an animated series. The first of the features, “Beginnings” will air on The Hub Network in early 2014.

In the story, Stan Lee is hired by Archie Comics to create a new group of superheroes. He finds himself stumped with writer’s block and heads to the desert to clear his mind. When seven aliens suddenly crash land near him and start demonstrating their various superpowers, he decides, “Perfect! They will be come my next superheroes!” But almost instantly, he realizes they are being chased by the military and aliens from their own planet, and he needs to act quickly. He makes the decision to have them move into his house in Malibu where he will teach them everything they need to know about being superheroes. Comedy and adventure ensue as the aliens try to adapt to life on earth, and their new roles as superheroes, all the while running for their lives!
“Mighty 7 is the first reality style comic books series and the first superhero project from Stan Lee Comics. We’re combining fantasy and reality, comedy and adventure for a superhero series unlike anything I’ve created before,” said Lee in his introduction of the cast. “These incredible actors have brought these alien superheroes to life even better than I could have imagined…if that’s even possible!”
