imageMarvel's Stan Lee Memorialized in World of Warcraft

Now that the v8.1.5 patch has been deployed to the World of Warcraft public test realm, players are busy ferreting out new information about upcoming content. In one of the more touching pieces discovered, players have found a new guard in the human Alliance city of Stormwind simply named "Stanley". A quick look at him shows that it is clearly Marvel's Stan Lee. Two other character models have also been datamined, one wearing a Horde tabard and one without any faction markings.

    Say what you want about Blizzard's direction with their games but it is nice to see they still have no problem immortalizing someone who was a heavy part of the entertainment industry like this.

    <== I appreciate this as someone who grew up with Stan and reading Marvel Comics, which in part, I believe helped me become the person I am. I still remember when he wrote the editor's notes in the Marvel titles back then.<br />
    My daughter and her husband met Stan at a comic con photo-op here years ago. They told Stan their first son is named after Spider-man (named him "Parker"). They of course were ushered through the photo-op quickly. Stan saw them leaving the area later on and he yelled at them "And tell Parker I said Hi".

    This is something they have always been good at doing.  There are many hidden easter eggs or tributes to people all throughout the game.

    Why it's say "Stanley" not "Stan Lee"?

    I think family could go after them for using his name and likeness

    Why are people overlooking how shitty of a person Stan Lee was?

    I hope the movies continue with cameos of him. Perhaps walking by a poster with him shown or someone sitting next to a person reading a magazine with Stan on the cover.

    i thought it was kind of sweet when they did it with Robin Williams(he was a fan as far as i know)
    this seems a little iffy though.

    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    i am pretty sure there are huge marvel fans within blizzard, and i am also sure they wanted to pay tribute to someone who might have had a big impact on their life.

    Is that an undead female reskin that they used for him? That’s kinda insulting in a subtle way...

    In before the "ruining my immersion" crowd. Are they still around?
    Pretty cool move by Blizz.

    That you agree with him doesn’t make him right, it could make you both wrong. You can have your opinion of course, and that ‘hehehe let me rain on the parade just because i can’ attitude too. Stan Lee his legacy speaks volumes whether you like him or not.

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 


    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    Nobody is overlooking anything.  It's called don't speak ill of the dead since they can't be here to defend themselves.  Especially not when it's only been two months and the wound is still fresh to some people.

    He made his money on other artists back and shared very little of the profit with them, a lot of the characters that you think he created, were the work of other people, that you don't want to google for that information is not my problem.
