Disney California Adventure Unveils Plaque Honoring Legacy of Stan Lee at Avengers Campus

Disney California Adventure has unveiled a new plaque honoring the legacy of the late great Disney Legend Stan Lee right at the entrance to Avengers Campus.

  • According to the Disney Parks Blog, guests visiting Avengers Campus can now find a plaque dedicated to Stan Lee at the entrance to the land.
  • Having had a hand in creating characters like Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four and so many more, Lee is one of the most prolific comic book creators of all time and his name is synonymous with the Marvel brand.
  • That makes Avengers Campus the perfect place to honor the legendary storyteller.

The plaque reads:

We dedicate Avengers Campus to the incomparable Stan Lee.

“That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt a real superhero.”

Thank you, Stan, for inspiring the hero within each of us. You have made us all True Believers.
