Last year, Lee talked to “CBS Sunday Morning” about his career and said of retirement, “That’s a dirty word. … Well, you know, retired to do what? I’m doing what I want to do. So why would I want to retire from it?”
In August, Lee celebrated his career with a tribute in Beverly Hills called “Stan Lee: Extraordinary.” Ruffalo, Aisha Tyler, Lou Ferrigno, RZA and comics creator Todd McFarlane were among the speakers at the event hosted by Chris Hardwick.
