You probably know this, but Stan Lee is the guy that participated in the creation of Hulk, X-Men, Doctor Strange, Daredevil, Black Panther, and many other heroes that became a part of comic book history. Unfortunately, the creator of these characters died yesterday at age 95, but he will be remembered as a hero of many childhoods and lives.
There is not a gaming or comic fan out there who doesn’t know who Mr. Lee was. If you ask some younger audience, they would probably emphasize that he had a cameo in every film that Marvel produced in the last decade and beyond. It wasn’t strange to see him present in the games, too.
His last appearance was in the Marvel’s Spiderman for PlayStation 4, the game developed by the Insomniac studio. Those that have a bit more experience in playing might also remember him for the Lego Marvel series.
Aside from his own appearances, the characters he created were stars of their own video games on numerous occasions. The entire entertainment industry is sad about the passing away of this great man and some of the people that are part of it paid public tributes to Lee on social media.
Vince Zampella, the CEO of Respawn Entertainment, the studio working on a new Star Wars title thanked Stan for the inspiration and fun he provided to the world. The team behind Pillars of Eternity franchise – Obsidian Entertainment – decided to publish a simple farewell, as well as Ed Boon, the co-creator of Injustice and Mortal Kombat and creative director of NetherRealm.
Warren Spector from OtherSide Entertainment was thrilled that he had the chance to meet Stan Lee and have such a legend sign the book on Fantastic Four he authored. Pete Hines, the vice-president of Bethesda, also thanked Lee for his contributions to the entertainment industry.
Jake Solomon is an XCOM designer that didn’t hide the fact how much he will miss Stan Lee and how Stan influenced his life and point of views. Even the gaming website writers are saying their farewells, such as the Eurogamer author Aoife Wilson who doesn’t hide her love for comics.
