James Marsters first gained genre-geek icon status with his turn as Spike on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, but since then, he’s been in a host of famous hero and hero-adjacent properties, including Smallville, Caprica, Dragonball, and voice acting in animated roles for both the Marvel and DC Universe franchises. But with Hulu’s Runaways, Marsters made his first foray into the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe, playing Victor Stein, the genius inventor and billionaire whose ego and anger threatens not only his own family, but the lives of many others. We caught up with him at the opening gala for the Seattle Museum Of Pop Culture’s “Marvel: Universe Of Superheroes” exhibit earlier this year, where we ended up getting pretty deep into not just the heady ideas behind his latest character, but heroism, pain, and the importance of lying to your children.
