At 84 years of age Stan Lee is proving that the creative spirit never dies.

In a story from Home Media Retailing, it seems that the iconic comic book creator is working with "Starz Home Entertainment on 'Stan Lee Presents,' a potential franchise of animated features produced by Lee's POW! Entertainment and the Starz-owned Film Roman animation studio."

"We're very excited," states Lee. "The DVDs should appeal to the same audience as those who enjoy Marvel comics."

The first DVD in the series, Mosaic, will come to DVD Jan. 9. It will sell for $14.98.

Mosaic tells the tale of Maggie Nelson, an average teenage girl who one day discovers she has superpowers. Around the same time, she befriends a mentor, who informs her of her role in helping bring peace to factions that have been at war for hundreds of years.

Maggie is voiced by Academy Award-winning actress Anna Paquin.

Some of the "bonus features on the DVD include an introduction by Lee, interviews with Lee and director Roy Smith, and Mosaic-ku, a puzzle based on Sudoku in which players fill in spaces with different characters to earn a congratulatory message from Lee."

There will also be a 16-page comic book that will introduce "the hero of the next 'Stan Lee Presents' DVD, The Condor, due March 20."

The Condor is "the story of a Latino skateboarding champion, voiced by Wilmer Valderrama of That '70s Show, who turns his back on his heritage until his parents are murdered and he is left crippled. He gains superhuman abilities through the use of nanotechnology."

Lastly, the third installment in the "Stan Lee Presents" presents series "is Ringo, a musical comedy that tells the life story of ex-Beatle Ringo Starr, voicing himself, as if he were a superhero."
