Mourning fans, enthusiasts, and community members will light candles in honor of Lee, who died at age 95, as a Long Island Icon and the most famous member of the Stony Brook community. The hotel will be showing his movies on all televisions in his honor. Lifelong Marvel fans will show off action figures, comic books, collectible items and more which are often-considered relics and one of a kind.

“Stan Lee was a member of the Long Island family and a major part of my childhood. I fondly remember reading his comic books and imagining Stan Lee’s creations. Today, this earth lost an icon, a legend, and millions of Americans and fans mourn his loss. He brought the superhero out in all of us,” said Charlie Ziegler, President, Tri-State Stan Lee Fan Club.
