This week, a brand new Stan Lee plaque can be seen in the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure to honor the man behind the famous comics.
With an impressive 100 year legacy, the bronze plaque atop a stone pillar pays tribute to Stan Lee and is situated at the entrance of Avengers Campus. Born December 28, 1922, Stanley Martin Leiber started his comic career at the age of 17. Up until his passing on November 12, 2018 at the age of 95, he was president emeritus of Marvel Comics.
Lee had a way of incorporating comedy seamlessly into both his comics, tv shows, and movies and not only gave kids a reason to what to devour the next book, but gave adults a reason to stay immersed in his created universe.
And if you really want to choke up, Stan’s last words were, “God bless. Take care of my boy, Roy.” Spoken to Roy Thomas, Roy is Lee’s protege. As for who the “boy” is, it is believed he was speaking about none other than Spider-Man.
Stan Lee Plaque: What’s Written on It?
Written on the plaque is the following tribute:
We dedicate Avengers Campus to the incomparable Stan Lee.
“That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt a real superhero.”
Thank you, Stan, for inspiring the hero within each of us. You have made us all True Believers.
