They did however manage to get a photo of the correct Lee, so that's something.

There were also tributes from the wider community of actors, musicians, politicians, and comic book creators. My uncle (Venkat Akkineni) was planning to set up an animation studio in Hyderabad then and we met Stan Lee in Chicago that regard.

He was best known for co-creating Marvel's beloved superheroes like Spider-Man, The X-Men, The Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Daredevil, Black Panther and Doctor Strange. But, at Comic-Con, no one felt more important than Stan "The Man".

The Marvel founder's daughter J.C. Lee told TMZ that her father Stan was "hands on" involved with the character just days before he passed away aged 95.

When Stan stepped back from his Marvel Comics duties, he handed the reins to Roy. who took over head writing duties for "Spider-Man" and eventually became Stan's first successor as editor-in-chief at 1972.

Jackman played Wolverine across the X-Men films, which were based on Lee and Jack Kirby's X-Men comics, before retiring the adamantium claws with the R-rated Logan. "This was an example that stood out and made me think his post was actually about Stan". "A superhero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect".

The late Stan Lee's daughter has revealed that the comics legend was working on one final superhero before he died: Dirt Man.

Crummell, the comic book artist, said she thinks representation for minorities and women in comic books is improving. "I feel that if you're able to entertain people, you're doing a good thing". "It's not a specific group now", Crummell said.

Born Stanley Lieber in 1922, Stan Lee lead a life of success that has inspired countless others.
