Excelsior! Comic book writer, editor, producer and overall legend, Stan Lee, returns to the city that never sleeps as Madame Tussauds New York, pays homage to the icon with his new wax figure in his hometown of New York City. In true superhero fashion, Stan Lee’s figure will stand alongside the very characters, and universe, he helped build. He will greet guests as they step through a portal and enter the newly refreshed and expanded Marvel Hall of Heroes, an all-new experience allowing guests to immerse themselves in the Marvel universe like never before.
Crafted with meticulous precision, the wax figure features Stan Lee in a classic ‘Spidey’ pose, with a big, warm smile and his famous aviator glasses. The figure will be dressed in the outfit he wore to the “Avengers: Infinity War” premiere on April 23rd, 2018 – including his classic green cardigan, khakis and white sneakers.
On November 16, Madame Tussauds New York offered a sneak peek for fans to see the figure for the first time as it toured three iconic locations in New York City, all with personal ties to Stan’s legacy and the characters he created. Stops on the tour included the famed 177A Bleecker Street, Dr. Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum; Bethesda Terrace, the spot where the Avengers said goodbye to Thor and Loki before going back to Asgard; and wrapping up at Stan Lee Way – in his hometown of the Bronx. Each stop offered fans the opportunity to see the figure for the first time, before it makes it to its final location at Madame Tussauds New York in the heart of Times Square.
Stan Lee will stand next to Spider-Man in the newly refurbished and expanded Hall of Heroes, which will also bring the addition of Antman & Wasp, Iron Man and Groot figures for the first time. Guests can meet, greet and fly with some of the most popular superheroes such as The Hulk, The Hulkbuster, Captain America, Thor, Nick Fury, Iron Man and the recently revealed Black Panther figure.
