Marvel Tribute For Stan Lee's 100th Birthday In Today's Comics

On the 29th of December this year, it would have been Stan Lee's 100th birthday. The former publisher and editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics in the sixties, when it developed its most famous characters, from Spider-Man to X-Men to the Avengers to the Fantastic Four to Doctor Strange to Iron Man died four years and one month ago, at the age of 96. DC Comics is planning a return to their Just Imagine Stan Lee Creating… universe later this month.

Marvel Comics hasn't announced any such publishing event, but in all today's Marvel Comics titles is a  celebration of Stan Lee, in his trademark V-neck green jumper, standing amongst a sea of superhero characters co-created by the man, and drawn by Humberto Ramos. With the headline "100 Years And Still Inspiring Us All"
