As the tributes poured in, however, Hammer took issue with how celebrities were remembering the late legend.
One reporter responded by writing, "They... worked with him...?" to which Hammer, who voiced Strong Arm in the 2014 TV movie Stan Lee's Mighty 7, responded, "Me.... too...?" These characters won the hearts of both casual readers and hardcore fans, as Lee's works appeal to people's sense of adventure.
Earlier this year, the Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War) teased during our interview that more Lee cameos might be in the can, as they aimed to shoot multiple such pop-ups all together. But, at Comic-Con, no one felt more important than Stan "The Man".

Lee wanted the storyline to explore the man finding a new connection with his heritage, and contrast it against his life in the city, Gillis said.
JC Lee told TMZ she wanted to continue with the Dirt Man project, but would not give any details about his powers or origin story, only saying: "It's very interesting".
