Newspaper Mistakes Stan Lee For Spike Lee On Obituary Page

Stan Lee Marvel Fantastic Four Josh Trank

The Instagram photo also included a mock obituary from a Twitter user who mixed titles of Spike's iconic films, such as Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X, with legendary Marvel characters, including X-Men and Spider-Man.

With the recent passing of Marvel legend Stan Lee, celebrities stormed social media as the news spread to share their memories with the visionary, but one person wasn't having it. It wasn't until the early 1960s that he would go on to change the face of comic books as we know them, introducing grounded superheroes with real, human flaws, starting with Spider-Man in 1962, debuting in the pages of Amazing Fantasy #15.

Lee began his career in the comic book business in 1939, before revolutionising the industry by creating The Fantastic Four with Jack Kirby in 1961. "Lee's death came just one day after he tweeted a photo of himself in his WWII uniform for Veterans" Day. Marvel Comics is now the leading publisher of the comic book industry in terms of sales and comics sold and is only rivaled by fellow superhero publisher DC Entertainment.

Lee rose through the ranks at Marvel, holding positions as writer, editor, film executive producer, editor-in-chief, publisher, and chairman. He's also made appearances in various comics, TV shows, and video games, ones made by Marvel and otherwise.

Reacting to the gaff in good humour, Spike, 61, posted the newspaper cover with the caption: "God Bless Stan Lee. Me?" His wife of 69 years, Joan, died in July 2017.
