Stan Lee Way: New York should honor street artist with street name

Stan Lee, as everyone knows, is the creator of superheroes like Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Iron Man and Black Panther. He was also famous for his funny appearances (“cameos”) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (UCM) – and even in competition, DC, in the animation Teen Titans in Action! At the movies. With such a remarkable resume, it wouldn’t be long before he was honored with his name on a street – and that’s what should happen in New York, in the United States.

The city council approved the proposal for the University Avenue to be called Stan Lee Way – in Portuguese, something like “via Stan Lee” or “Stan Lee’s way”. It is located between Brandt Place and West 176th Street in the Bronx County. A curious fact is that Excelsior himself lived there, at number 1,720, as a student at DeWitt Clinton school.

The decision is now in the hands of the mayor of New York. A subscription is enough to make the appointment.

Lee passed away in November 2018 at the age of 95. This year, there were two posthumous tributes. In Captain Marvel, the traditional opening scene was replaced by images with the comic present. In the film Spider-Man in the Spider-Man, there is a scene in which he talks to the next “web head”, Miles Morales, about the death of Peter Parker. His last appearance in the Marvel feature films was in Avengers: Endgame.
