DC Comics Pays Tribute To Stan "The Man" Lee In Today's New Releases From The Publisher

Stan Lee helped create some of the greatest heroes in the Marvel Universe and while his contributions to DC Comics were rare, the publisher has paid tribute to "The Man" in comics like Heroes in Crisis...

A number of big comics went on sale today, including the latest issues of Action Comics, Detective Comics, and Heroes in Crisis, and one recurring theme in them all is the fact that DC has paid tribute to the late, great Stan "The Man" Lee. 

The co-creator of characters like Iron Man, Spider-Man, and The Hulk frequently referred to DC as the "Distinguished Competition" on letter pages during his tenure with Marvel Comics and that's referenced here as the company pays its respects to Lee following his passing late last year. 

Lee wrote only a handful of DC Comics, usually as part of gimmicky events like "Just Imagine Stan Lee's..." which saw him recreate a number of iconic characters in the classic Marvel mould. 

Lee's work in the 1960s helped turn comic books around and while he may not have spent time writing stories starring the likes of Superman and the Justice League, he definitely influenced how they were portrayed in the years which would follow. 

Do you think this is a fitting tribute to "The Man"? Share your thoughts on that in the usual place.
