(Not nearly) 'nuff said!

Champions Online was just one of the many superhero MMOs that came out to pay their respects to comics legend Stan Lee after news of his death earlier this week, and now the folks at Perfect World Entertainment have put out a new post paying tribute to the man without whom their game, and many others like it, may never have existed.

“The world lost one of the greatest heroes in comic book history this week. Stan Lee created so many worlds that inspired, and continue to inspire the work we do here on Champions, and we join superheroes everywhere in mourning his passing. Stan was a bright, powerful force in the world, working to bring comics to the mainstream acceptance they now enjoy for decades. The stories and characters he created, and the man himself, will never be forgotten.”

The devs also announced that they’ve added a new customization item to the game: Stan Lee’s iconic aviator sunglasses. Players can snag the glasses for free at the in-game tailor and wear them proudly to honor the forefather of modern comics.

The greatest loss for fans, but he had a good life anyway.

It’s crazy how he lived to be 95 and still was going to conventions to meet fans/etc. and making Marvel movie cameos. Dude clearly loved what he did and didn’t seem to ever fully quit being involved with it all up until his health/age got to him.

On the one hand it’s sad that we have to say goodbye to such a creative genius, but on the other he definitely lived a long life and brought joy, inspiration, and entertainment to countless millions across the world and spanning multiple generations. We need more folks like that.

I sure hope movies and games keep including Stan Lee cameos; they are fun, the tech for adding them in absentia is here, and it would be the perfect homage for him.

Stan filmed several cameos last year, so we have a few more coming.

Otherwise going the painting/photo route would be easier. For example, Cloak & Dagger and Deadpool 2.

They are awesome looking shades too.

I can confirm it’s not a reskin of the Glasses Aviator model. The frame is different, right down to the temple tips. It’s a nice and quick tribute. Thanks CO.

Onwards and upwards Stan. Excelsior!
