In honor of Spider-Man creator Stan Lee, who’s in town for this weekend’s Boston Comic Con festivities, Saturday was declared Stan Lee Day in the Hub. Mayor Marty Walsh delivered the proclamation personally during a brief get-together with the 92-year-old icon at the Seaport World Trade Center. In addition to Spider-Man, which he created along with such artists as Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, Lee’s resume includes Iron Man, Daredevil, The Avengers, and X-Men.
