Pop Culture Roundup: Stan Lee; The Tick; Worst World, more

We're living in the Marvel Age of recycled news. More than a year ago io9 posted a fun story about 16-year-old George R.R. Martin writing a somewhat nasty fan letter to the Fantastic Four letter column. This week, every site on the net has posted it like it's news. What gives?

Speaking of Stan, he's the subject a new interview in the Hollywood Reporter.

Amazon is updated the late, possibly in some quarters lamented, "The Tick" TV series as part of its pilot season on Aug. 19. Here's the skinny:
In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero. The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin) and Brendan Hines (Scorpion). The Tick is executive produced by Ben Edlund (Supernatural), Barry Josephson (Bones) and Barry Sonnenfeld (A Series of Unfortunate Events), directed by Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight), and written by Edlund. The Tick is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television.
