Stan LeeDie-hard comic fans are flocking to San Diego this week for the Comic-Con conference -- an annual convention featuring comic books, A-list Hollywood actors and trailers for upcoming feature films.

Also on hand will be none other than POW! Entertainment (POWN) Chairman and CCO Stan Lee. Often referred to as the "father of the superhero," Lee, 87, is responsible for co-creating iconic favorites including Spider-Man, the X-Men and The Hulk. And he's just unveiled three new superheroes at Comic-Con:The Traveler, Starborn and Soldier Zero.

The comic-book writer/producer and former president and CEO of Marvel Comics has touched millions across the globe and has made a lasting mark on the multibillion dollar comic industry. His signature "This is Stan Lee" sign-off to the Hulk animated TV series, which begin airing during the late 1970s, even made him a household name.

Lee and POW! COO Gill Champion opened up to DailyFinance about comic books, the company's recent investment from Disney (DIS) and what investors can look forward to in the coming months.
