By now, you've probably heard the unfortunate news that comic book legend Stan Lee has passed away. The Marvel Comics co-founder died Monday morning after being rushed from his home in Hollywood Hills to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. 

In memory of the comic book icon, a superhero reception and candlelight vigil will be held on Thursday, November 14 at the Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook. The event is being hosted by John C Tsunis, owner of the Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook and Three Village Community Activist, who will be joined by President of the Tri-State Stan Lee Fan Club Charlie Ziegler, Stony Brook community leaders, Stony Brook University students, and Marvel enthusiasts.

“Stan Lee was a member of the Long Island family and a major part of my childhood. I fondly remember reading his comic books and imagining Stan Lee’s creations. Today, this earth lost an icon, a legend, and millions of Americans and fans mourn his loss. He brought the superhero out in all of us,” said Charlie Ziegler, President, Tri-State Stan Lee Fan Club.

Although he was born in Manhattan, Lee spent much of his adult life with Joan residing in Long Island. On Thursday, the Stony Brook community will gather to honor the town's most famous resident.

Mourning fans, enthusiasts, and community members will light candles in honor of Lee, who died at age 95, as a Long Island Icon and the most famous member of the Stony Brook community. 

Stan Lee was a pioneer in the comic book industry, co-founding Marvel Comics with Jack Kirby in 1961. He was responsible for the creation of many of the characters Marvel Studios has brought to life on the big screen via the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man, and The Avengers.  The hotel will be showing Lee's movies on all of the televisions in his honor.

Marvel fans will also gather to show off action figures, comic books, and other collectible items that are a result of Stan Lee's significant work. The event organizers encourage fans to also dress in the costumes of their favorite Marvel characters to celebrate his creations.
