Stan Lee’s cultural impact in Japan: Animators, mangaka, celebrities pay tribute to Comic icon

(Source: sgcafe.com)

Comic Book legend Stan Lee has now passed away at age 95. And with his passing comes tributes from countless people, from normal comics fans to celebrities. And now, the Marvel Comics creator is seeing tribute from those he touched back in Japan. This is because Stan has worked with a lot of big names from the country, and has definitely affected their lives.

Not only did his Spider-Man get a tokusatsu TV show (with a giant robot!), but The Avengers also got various TV anime, along with X-Men. He even worked on manga, writing the concept for Karakuri Douji Ultimo. He also worked on anime, making a cameo on Heroman, as well as co-producing last year’s The Reflection TV anime. Stan Lee’s works have inspired countless mangaka, animators, directors, seiyuu, and even idols back in Japan, and it shows as they posted tributes to the fallen comics icon.
