Last weekend, the POW! team attended Los Angeles Comic Con to celebrate the upcoming centennial of Stan Lee with fans. Given that Stan was born 100 years ago this month and LACC was once named after him, it was a no brainer to honor him there!

And it was a truly marvelous experience.

Along with our partners at Genius Brands, we crafted a booth honoring all things Stan The Man. We’re talking a centennial signing wall, quotes from Stan, a video compilation of The Man over the years, a short Stan history, and exclusive products.

We even built a customized experience for fans to create their own T-shirt or water bottle with a variety of fun Stan designs!

By far, the best part of the weekend was hearing from fans. Countless people shared their Stan stories with us – that time they met Stan, the con they almost met him at, where they saw him swiftly walking by, and so forth. We also read innumerable messages left on the centennial wall. So many fans left notes that one part of the wall was filled by Saturday!

From funny to touching, every story and message warmed our hearts. We truly felt the love and admiration for Stan and are ecstatic that fans continue to keep his memory and legacy alive. For those unable to attend the convention, we shared images of the signing and quote walls on social media. We really enjoyed reading all the delightful comments people left. Hopefully, it made fans all over the world feel connected and involved in our celebration.

We also brought a fan-favorite with us: the Little Stan Lee plush! Fans in and out of costume asked to take photos with the adorable plush. Check out some of those below:

For fans who attended and stopped by our booth, thank you! Stan’s legacy lives on through those who keep his memory alive, and we couldn’t thank you enough for your support.
