Stan Lee, the late legend responsible for the creation of a litany of revered comic book characters, is being honored with a Bronx street name.

Per a New York Post rundown of the tribute act, City Council voted Tuesday to co-name University Avenue between Brandt Place and West 176th Street "Stan Lee Way." The Marvel icon, notably, had lived in the area and was an alum at DeWitt Clinton High School. Now, the proposal just needs mayoral sign-off to become official.

Lee died at the age of 95 last November. Marvel's Roy Thomas, relaying his last encounter with Lee to The Hollywood Reporter, said Lee was "ready to go" but still had enthusiasm for his art and his fan-adored series of movie cameos.

"As long as he had the energy for it and didn't have to travel, Stan was always up to do some more cameos," Thomas said. "He got a kick out of those more than anything else."

At this month's San Diego Comic-Con, tributes to the icon were plentiful, including a commemorative Stan Lee plush doll that appeared in a multitude of fan photos from the California festivities:

In one of his last filmed moments, Lee talked about his love for the community of fans that had sustained him throughout his career. 

"Sometimes at night, I am sitting here and I'm thinking 'What's it all about?'' Lee said. "And then I get a letter from a fan or I read something or I see something or I remember something. And I realize, it's so lucky to have fans, fans who really care about you."
