Stan Lee’s daughter has revealed that she worked with her father on a new character before his death earlier this week.
The Marvel Comics icon died at the age of 95 earlier this week, after being rushed to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.
But as tributes continue to pour in, his daughter J.C. Lee says that the comic book legend has one more creation in store for the world.
“We have been working on a character called Dirt Man”, she revealed in a new interview with TMZ.
“The last little angel we’ve got tucked away is called Dirt Man. I said ‘Daddy please, no clatter, no steel or any of that. Let’s get down and dirty. Let’s do what’s going on about love. Let’s do Dirt Man.’”
She added: “It’s very interesting. We still have a little trickery.”
When asked if the character could become a future Marvel movie, she replied: “I hope so”.
Paying tribute to her father she said: “He gave it up for everyone. When I was in my early teens I worked at Marvel. I used to open up the fan letters. Where my father could, he opened every fan letter..
“He loved them and it’s all about the fans. My father loved them so much.”
Meanwhile, fans have been sharing Stan Lee’s columns about the evils of racism in the wake of his death.
