While Avengers Campus – a heroic attraction located inside Disney California Adventure Park – already serves as a tribute to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the park has now added a plaque commemorating the iconic Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee‘s legacy, who passed away at the age of 95.
Disney Parks announced the memorial plaque on Twitter, noting that it can be seen at Avengers Campus in Anaheim park’s California Adventure. The park’s most recent addition is imprinted with a quotation from Lee that reads, “That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt a real superhero.” This similar remark was used to dedicate Lee in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which was one of the late comic book legend’s last cinematic appearances.
Outside Avengers Campus, Lee’s plaque commemorates the original True Believer’s 100-year history and marks it set in the world of comics. Prior to his death in 2018, the 95-year-old author had the chance to appear with the characters he co-created in a series of memorable appearances. Lee’s imprint will continue to be felt in future editions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man: No Way Home was the most recent film to have a planned tribute to Lee in its screenplay.
The MCU’s next feature, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will revolve around Doctor Strange, the reality-bending wizard created by Lee and the late artist Steve Ditko. The movie is slated to open in cinemas on May 6.
