Have you ever had a friend with overprotective parents? We’ve all met someone like that, and hopefully, it wasn’t you! Well, Stan Lee, the creator of the Marvel universe, was like that overprotective father: he always kept a close eye on the superheroes he gave life to. If you watch any of the Marvel movies, you will surely see him appear at the most unexpected moments! We at Bright Side pay tribute to this comic book legend who passed away this week at the age of 95.

8. X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)
Imagine this: one morning you are watering your plants peacefully and in the next moment, the water in the hose goes out of control and the cars on the street begin to float. I think we would all end up with an expression very similar to that of poor Stan.

13. Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme (2016)
It’s already the third time that Stan Lee is distracted! At least this time he didn’t put his life at risk because of it, he just missed a multi-dimensional battle between sorcerers. An everyday occurrence…
