For the community of Marvel fans, no one is unfamiliar with Stan Lee. He created the most iconic characters in the Marvel Universe such as Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, and The Hulk. Not only was Stan Lee the “father” of superheroes, he was also extremely loved by the audience as a cameo actor.
Well, it’s great to have a father who always watches over and protects you, isn’t it? The same goes for the superheroes in MCU. They have always been protected and supervised by their founding father. Why do I think so? If you re-watch Marvel movies, you’ll spot a familiar face in each movie. That’s Stan Lee. Although he only appeared for a few seconds of the entire 120-minute episode, Stan Lee gave the audience plenty to look forward to.
