Stan Lee struggled in his final years to get broadcasters behind a Canadian-set TV series about an Indigenous cop with special powers, says a producer who teamed with the late Marvel Comics founder to help it take shape. Lee actually made appearances in several of the movies, and Marvel fans consider those cameos to be very important parts of the movies. Naturally, all the fans he touched with his creations and the stars who brought such comic book characters to life showered the internet with posts in homage to Lee. The footage is plastered with various footage and photos of Lee throughout the years, much of it in his later years, during which, he still maintained his youthful and energetic spirit.
