Creating a Final Superhero

 

Stan Lee’s characters will live forever, his legacy has helped so many and it looks like he continued to create right up to his passing according to new reports.

In an interview with TMZLee’s daughter J.C. has said how her father had been helping workshop a character with her called Dirt Man.

“I’ve been trying to get him to create a character with me his entire life. We’ve been working on a character called Dirt Man,” J.C. revealed.

And it looks like she has plans for the character in the future. 

One thing she was sure to work with her father on creating a hero that was less steely!

“The last little angel we’ve got tucked away is Dirt Man and I said ‘Daddy, no clatter, no steel, no any of that, Let’s get down and dirty. Let’s do what’s going on and what’s about love. Let’s do Dirt Man.’ It’s very interesting and it’s not over yet. We still have a little trickery.”

J.C. isn’t sure what the exact plans are yet but she hopes to get to the point where there is a movie!

A Foundation in His Honor

J.C. also revealed how she’s helping to launch a foundation in her father’s name; the Stan Lee Childhood Literacy Foundation

“We’re creating the Stan Lee Childhood Literacy Foundation. “The importance of the written word and in the importance reading is to not be underestimated. One reason why Stan is ‘Stan the Man’ is he took his craft very seriously.”

“And there’s a lot to say to pass on to children about reading and writing.”

Shortly after her father’s passing yesterday, J.C. offered the first statement to TMZ:“My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man.”

Stan Lee passed away Monday morning at the age of 95. Last year his wife of 50-plus years, Joan, passed away. Our condolences to his family at this time.
