On July 18 (the eve of San Diego Comic-Con), Stan Lee, will put his handprints and footprints in cement in the forecourt of the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX®. Legion M will be organizing and hosting the complete event, making it the first ever handprint-footprints ceremony in TCL history to be hosted by fans!
Stan Lee, the chief creative force behind the rise of Marvel Comics, brought to life some of the world’s most famous heroes and infamous villains, including Spider-Man, The Hulk, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, Daredevil, Dr. Strange, The Avengers, Loki, and Dr. Doom. His stories featured heroes and villains that were more psychologically complex than had ever been seen previously, inspiring legions of fans.
Lee’s connection to fans immediately led him to Legion M’s unique model of being the first fan-owned entertainment company, and he has been supportive of Legion M since its launch in 2016. Legion M embodies the fan culture that Lee’s work launched, perpetuating a legacy that has impacted generations. By organizing and rallying the fans, celebrities, companies and anyone who has been positively impacted by Lee’s work, Legion M is paying a heartfelt, historic and overdue tribute to one of the greatest storytellers of our time.
"On behalf of Stan Lee and Stan Lee Collectibles, we’re deeply moved and appreciative of the groundswell of fan support Stan has always enjoyed, and we’re grateful that his fans have united together with Legion M to give him this great honor,” said Max Anderson, the CEO of Stan Lee Collectibles.
Stan Lee is known as a producer, writer, editor, publisher, actor, host, executive, and idol to many around the world. He "has left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry having created or co-created 90% of Marvel’s most recognized characters."
