Stan Lee co-creator of Marvel Comics and all-round icon died at the age of 95 on November 12th, 2018. He passed away due to complications from a sudden stroke. He was born in New York and at the moment there is a petition to build a statue in his honor there for remembrance. Today, the 12th may the petition is on 50,000 signatures and climbing.
There is no denying that the late Stan Lee had a profound impact on the majority of comic book characters that still continue in the comics today. Every fan of the MCU has also enjoyed his humor in the cameos he’s done in the 22 movies leading up to endgame. He performed his final cameo in Avengers: Endgame appearing in a car when Tony Stark and Steve Rogers traveled back in time.
“I’m starting this petition” petition starter David Gourlay says on the petition page. “Because I have enjoyed and respected his work, like many others over the years, and think a statue in his honour would be right for keeping his memory alive.”
I believe this is a very nice gesture to the late legend and fans all around the world are agreeing.
R.I.P Stan Lee 😢
