- This is a walkthrough guide for use in locating and saving Marvel Comics Legend, Stan Lee, from a total of 50 different perilous situations!
- There are 15 main story missions, 11 Side-Missions (actually 12, but there's no Stan in "The Brick Apple"), for a total of 26. Each of which contains Stan Lee in varying kinds of danger, somewhere within the level.
- There is 1 "Bonus Stan", which is earned automatically at the X-Men mansion during the prologue to Mission 8: "Juggernauts and Crosses". After which, the first location of the remaining 23 will be added to your map, designated by a blue circle with Stan's face in the middle. These locations must be completed one after another, in the same order as I have listed them. Every location will be unlocked/ available upon completion of Story Mode.
First, the missions:
#1: Sand Central Station - In the second area of this level, Stan Lee is trapped under a vending machine on the second level balcony behind the 1st gold chandelier. Destroy the vending machine to free him.
#2 Times Square Off- In the third area of this level, Use explosives to destroy the silver objects above the fan motor, then use a character with Telekinesis to assemble and operate a pump. This will cause the water tower to burst, revealing Stan Lee.
#3 Exploratory Laboratory- In the fourth area of this level, In the short corridor with the capsules lining the walls, use a magnetic character on the blue box to the left, then use a clawed character on the claw switch to release three enemies and Stan Lee.

He is unlocked at the X-Men Mansion in the prologue leading into mission 8. This does NOT count for the "Stan Lee in Peril" collectible in mission 8, and you must still earn that one for all 50.
#9 Juggernauts and Crosses- In the third area of this level, To save Stan Lee, you’ll need to put out the fire on top of the small burning building on the left side of the area, then build some green handles onto it.
