On Monday, comic fans, movie fans, and all other true believers received the very sad news that iconic Marvel Comics' former president and chairman Stan Lee had died at the age of 95. In addition to writing/editing a number of excellent stories read by you/your parents (?), Lee was best known for co-creating Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Panther, and the Fantastic Four (in addition to many others).
Anyway, once technology caught up to the ideas that were able to be expressed and drawn in mid-20th century comic books, Hollywood started adapting Lee's ideas to the big screen for the sake of printing money, appropriately he was also rewarded with cameos that could be spotted by eagle-eyed moviegoers, even though (in most instances) having an eagle-eye wasn't necessary. After all his signature mustache, shades, and slicked-back hair usually wasn't too tough to spot. Especially since he usually read a few lines too.
On Monday, after hearing the news of Lee's death, The New York Daily News put together a supercut of nearly every big screen cameo the legend made, dating from the late '80s and accelerating with super-speed at the start of the 21st century. These cameos included, in order, *takes deep breath*: The Trial of The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Spider-Man, Daredevil, Hulk (with a bonus cameo by Lou Ferrigno), Spider-Man 2, Fantastic Four, X-Men: The Last Stand, Spider-Man 3, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant Man, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, X-Men: Apocalypse, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant Man and the Wasp.
Damn. That's not even including Deadpool 2 or Venom (since bootlegging's still illegal and all). Safe to say Lee made an impact on this world. Check out the entire rundown above.
