CELEBRITY Stan Lee
The late and great Stan Lee has left the world and the universe he created, shaking all the people he's inspired to the core. But it seems he's left us one last gift.
As comic book fans around the globe mourn this immense loss, and dread the day a Marvel film doesn't include his cameo, they can at least find joy in knowing that right up until his final weekend, he was working on a superhero.
His daughter J.C. Lee revealed to TMZ that her father was helping her develop a new character, and that she's vowed to bring the project into fruition. She said that she's been trying to get him to create a character with her all her life, and that time has come. The superhero to look out for is: Dirt Man.
Despite the questionable name—they still have time to change it—J.C. did promise that his powers and origin story are "very interesting." She said she wanted to ditch the clatter and steel and "do what’s going on and what’s about love," before teasing fans by adding, "We still have a little trickery."
Whether this character will hop onto the silver screen or remain in the colorful pages of a comic book is unsure, though J.C. said she hoped it would make it to film.
Adding to legacy of Stan Lee, J.C. announced the launch of his Childhood Literacy Foundation, which will continue to endorse the magic of reading and writing in the generations to come, hopefully bringing forward some Stan Lee successors.
