In a new clip from “With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story,” Stan Lee talks about almost quitting the comic book business in the ’60s and how his wife convinced him to give it another shot.

EPIX will present Marvel Heroes Weekend, April 27 – 29, a marathon of superhero movies including Iron Man 2, Thor, the world television premiere of Captain America: The First Avenger and the EPIX Original Documentary With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story. Hosted by legendary comic book creator Stan Lee, the marathon also includes EPIX Extra: Mighty Movie Superheroes, examining the origins and fan following of the mighty team. The weekend celebration of Marvel’s famed superheroes and their creator features the movies that have led up to the highly anticipated theatrical release of The Avengers on May 4.

Stan Lee himself will appear in the region later in May: He’s a guest at the upcoming Dallas Comic Con on May 19-20.
