Stan Lee’s Genesis

At Emerald City Comic ConRocketship Entertainment and Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment announced the first-ever Stan Lee tabletop game, Stan Lee’s Genesisin which players must harness their creative energy to give birth to a unique universe.

Stan Lee’s Genesis is a tile-building game in which players each create their own universe using a system of resources that consists of SparkEnergyMotivationConflict, and Empathy. Players build their own terrain, beginning with a nexus tile. As the game progresses players may link their terrain to create a larger board through “crossover” events. Each player continues to build the universe through resources and card assets, creating various elements, including: Heroes, Villains, Teams, Terrain Features and Locations, Plots, and Events.

Every game is different as players both compete and collaborate as they construct a comic book universe full of heroes, villains, super teams, evil syndicates, galactic threats, and all-encompassing crossover events!

Due to its incredibly large scope, Stan Lee’s Genesis has been in development for a number of years. It will feature 200 original characters co-created by Rocketship Entertainment Publisher and longtime Stan Lee collaborator Tom Akel and Eisner-nominated artist Ryan Benjamin. Designed by Akel, the game will hit shelves in 2022.

The game will be available for pre-order on Kickstarter followed by global retail distribution. Fans can register now to be the first to be alerted to new developments with the game, character reveals, special events, and more.
