Marvel comic book legend Stan Lee, lost his wife Joan Lee on Thursday and Marvel Entertainment released a video remembering Joan.
When news of Joan’s passing got out both Marvel and DC Comics released official statements.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband and daughter. We are so saddened to hear about the loss of Joan Lee. We lost a member of the Marvel family today and our thoughts and prayers go out to Stan and his daughter Joan in this difficult time.”
Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment
“Of all the great stories Stan Lee has to tell, the most touching is of the day he met Joan, the British model who would become his future wife. Instantly smitten, Stan proposed the first day of their meeting, beginning a beautiful, enviable life together for nearly seven decades. Everyone at DC is truly saddened to hear of the passing of Joan Lee and our hearts go out to Stan and his family in this time of loss.”
On Friday, Marvel Entertainment released a video not scheduled for release until later this year, but after the passing of Joan Lee on Thursday Marvel felt it would be appropriate it to release it early.
I don’t want to spoil what’s actually in the video, but I will say this was very nice of Marvel Entertainment to release the video and let us see just how much Stan loved his wife.
Joan Lee died at the age of 93. Joan and Stan were married for 69 years. We here at Reggie’s Take sends our condolences to Stan Lee and his family in their time of grieve.
Marvel Entertainment: Joe Quesada, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, sat down with Stan Lee at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills, Calif. The video below was originally planned to be part of a series from the event scheduled for release later this year. In remembrance of Joan Lee and her importance to Marvel and the history of comics as a whole, we felt it appropriate to release this now.
