Most of Stan Lee’s life was spent in creating, moulding and promoting characters that would live on forever like Fantastic Four, Black Panther and Spider-Man. Now, new reports claim that Lee helped to create characters until the day he passed away.
Lee’s daughter J.C. revealed this during an interview with TMZ saying that he had been helping workshop a character with her called Dirt Man.
“I’ve been trying to get him to create a character with me his entire life. We’ve been working on a character called Dirt Man,” J.C. revealed.
J.C. added that she does have future plans for the character.
“The last little angel we’ve got tucked away is Dirt Man and I said ‘Daddy, no clatter, no steel, no any of that,'” said Lee. “‘Let’s get down and dirty. Let’s do what’s going on and what’s about love. Let’s do Dirt Man.’ It’s very interesting and it’s not over yet. We still have a little trickery.”
However, when asked about those plans, and if it will get its own film, J.C. said that she’s “hopeful” for it to get to that point. Lee also detailed a new foundation she would be helping to launch called Stan Lee Childhood Literacy Foundation.
“We’re creating the Stan Lee Childhood Literacy Foundation,” J.C. detailed. “The importance of the written word and in the importance reading is to not be underestimated. One reason why Stan is ‘Stan the Man’ is he took his craft very seriously.”
“And there’s a lot to say to pass on to children about reading and writing.”
Soon after her father passed away, J.C. issues a statement saying, “My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man.”
