Stan Lee is coming to Cleveland.
The legendary comic book writer, editor, actor, producer and publisher will attend Wizard World Comic Con Cleveland on March 3 and 4, according to a Jan. 18 news release.
Lee will greet fans, pose for photo ops, sign autographs and conduct interactive Q&A sessions in Saturday and Sunday appearances.
He’ll do the same for Wizard World Comic Con St. Louis, which is Feb. 3-4.
Lee is known to millions as the man whose superheroes propelled Marvel to its preeminent position in the comic book industry. His co-creations include Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man and hundreds of others. He introduced Spider-Man as a newspaper strip that became the most successful of all syndicated adventure strips, having appeared in more than 500 newspapers worldwide, according to the news release.
Lee is a member of the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame, and is chairman emeritus of Marvel, as well as a member of the editorial board of Marvel Comics.
“There is no bigger name in the comics world than Stan Lee, and we couldn’t be happier to have him back at two of our upcoming shows,” Wizard World CEO John D. Maatta said in a news release. “It is truly an experience for fans to meet this legend who has made everything in the industry possible.”
The Daily Mail recently reported that Lee, in a suit filed by a nursing company, is accused of sexually harassing nurses charged with caring for him in his California home. Lawyers for Lee have stated the claims are untrue.
Wizard World Comic Con events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate movies, television, gaming, live entertainment, comics, sci-fi, graphic novels, toys, original art, collectibles, contests and more, according to the release.
Wizard World Comic Con Cleveland is scheduled for March 2 through 4 at Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.
