This year, fans of Former President and Chairman of Marvel Comics Stan Lee are coming together to celebrate the life and career of the Marvel legend in a big way. Tuesday, July 18, which is just two days preceding the start of this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Lee will immortalize his hand and footprints in cement outside TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX®.




2017 marks three significant dates in Lee’s life: his 95th Birthday, his 70th wedding anniversary, and his 78th year since joining Timely Comics. At the time, he started off filling inkwells as his first job with the company. However, Timely Comics would, with his help, eventually become the well-known successful company people know today as Marvel Comics.


Lee’s Career


Lee has, during the course of his career, brought to life the battle between good and evil in a way that would influence the superhero genre for years to come. Lee is the creator of many of today’s most popular and influential Marvel superheroes, such as the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, and others. The name of his work has grown largely over the years in entertainment, far beyond comics into film, television, and merchandise. Fans all over the world have been inspired by Lee’s iconic contribution to the world of superheroes and villains, and now it is their turn to do something special for him in appreciation.


The “Ultimate Gift”


To honor Lee, Legion M is bringing in his fans for a party and the “ultimate gift,” according to a statement on the Legion M website. The event will take place at 11 a.m., followed by an after party. Because studios have usually held events at this venue in the past, this will be the first time ever that fans have hosted a ceremony at TCL. Fans can find out how to participate in the celebration and attend the event by going online to Legion M.
