Stan Lee is planning one last trip to Salt Lake City.
Lee, the longtime editor and publisher of Marvel Comics who helped create such characters as Spider-Man and the Hulk, will be appearing at Salt Lake Comic Con’s FanX in March, organizers announced Wednesday. Lee’s appearance at FanX, set for March 17 and 18 at the Salt Palace Convention Center, will be one of his last public events, said Salt Lake Comic Con co-founder Dan Farr. “We felt like it was really important to get him to come back again,” Farr said. Though Lee is 94, Farr added, “If you meet him, you know he’s going to live to be 130.”
Lee appeared at Salt Lake Comic Con in 2014 and told the cheering audience, “You people have the greatest comic con in the world.” Lee will lead a roster of FanX celebrities announced Wednesday by Farr and business partner Bryan Brandenburg at a news conference at the Utah Capitol, surrounded by cosplaying fans.
