Excelsior!

Stan Lee - the man who taught many to dream and creator of many fantastic but flawed super-heroes like Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and more from the Marvel Cinematic Universe - passed-away at the age of 95.

Apart from his skills as a comic book creator and editor, Mr. Lee had graced many movies, comic books, video-games and sit-coms with his cameos, which were quite legendary. So much so that there have been times when the cameo is more memorable than the movie itself, but that’s Stan Lee for you.

Here is a quick look back at of all the times, Stan Lee won our hearts with his big, small but mostly hilarious cameos.

Apart from movies and TV, Stan Lee has several cameos in animations and video games. The most significant one being his first-ever onscreen video game appearance as a senator named after himself in Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

Fans are hopeful that they will get to see him one last time in a cameo for the Marvel Avengers 4 movies. The rumours state that he has already shot for his part in the movie.

Keep moving forward, and if it’s time to go, it’s time. Nothing lasts forever.
