Mayor Marty Walsh stopped by the Seaport World Trade Center on Saturday to honor the Marvel legend during his appearance at this year’s Boston Comic Con.

The 92-year-old couldn’t have been more thrilled to get his own day and thanked Walsh for the dedication.

As the mastermind behind characters like the Hulk, Spider-Man, and countless others, it’s no surprise that Lee has been a fan-favorite in the comic book world for decades. He also has a penchant for making cameos in pretty much every Marvel movie that comes out.


If you’re wondering how to celebrate Stan Lee Day, the legendary scribe offered Boston.com a few cheeky suggestions.

“Buy a lot of comic books, what else?’’ Lee joked. “And go and see a lot of Marvel movies.’’
