Comic book giant Stan Lee lists home in Hollywood Hills West


No doubt Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee would like to see some action of a different sort. He just listed his house in Hollywood Hills West at $3.75 million.

Set off a cul-de-sac, the walled and gated home is being marketed as a build/develop opportunity.

Built in 1945, the existing house has about 2,500 square feet of living space, four bedrooms and six bathrooms, according to tax records. There’s a fireplace in the living room.


Mature landscaping surrounds the house, which opens at the back to a swimming pool and spa with a red-brick surround. The fifth of an acre site has cityscape and greenbelt views.

Lee, 91, co-created such comic book superheroes as Spider-Man, the Hulk and the X-Men. He is the former president and chairman of Marvel Comics, which he helped expand from publishing to multimedia.

Lee played a mail carrier in “Fantastic Four” (2005) and more recently has served as executive producer on numerous films and the series “Agents of the S.H.I.E.L.D.”

He bought the house in 2006 for $3.599 million, public records show.

Linda May of Coldwell Banker is the listing agent.
