In between all the rivalry between the two major comic book houses, DC Comics has revealed that there is common ground when they paid a tribute to the Marvel icon, Stan Lee.
Stan Lee had passed away last year and he was 95 years old. He passes away from heart failure and pneumonia. Many of his fans and celebrities had poured in tributes and also many memories of the Marvel editor, publisher and writer.
In the world of comic books, a lot of creators have spent time in working for either publisher, and they have been considered to be the “Big Two,” and Stan Lee had been no exception. Stan Lee’s very first DC Credit was in Detective Comics #600 in the last chapter of “Blind Justice” storyline, and here, the writer had penned an ode to Batman. His main project for DC had been in the year, 2001 on the Just Imagine series, and here, the legend had reimagined many other DC characters like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. His last work had been a story in DC Presents: Superman #1.
Before he had become synonymous with the MCU for his famous cameos, a parody of Stan Lee called, Funky Flashman had made an appearance in Jack Kirby’s Mister Miracle. Flashman’s character and the mannerisms were said to be a result of the falling out between the creators while they were working at Marvel.
In spite of his contribution and association with Marvel, DC has honoured and also remember the legend that he was.
