Lee has appeared on Big Bang Theory, Chasing Amy, Comic Book: The Movie, and other shows, but he is best known for creating comics.Overstating Stan Lee’s contribution to the comic industry fits the hype of this great persona. Stan “The Man” was a prolific writer, a known editor, and a shrewd leader of Marvel Comics. Now, the man, the myth, and the legend is returning to Charlotte. Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find, the comic shop that runs the local Heroes Convention made the announcement:
