LOS ANGELES (AP) - Among comics lovers, Stan Lee was as much a superhero as the characters he helped create.

Those fans, along with Lee's friends and colleagues, will get to pay their final respects at a Los Angeles memorial Wednesday night for the Marvel Comics mastermind who helped bring the world Spider-Man, Black Panther and The Incredible Hulk.

Filmmaker and Lee super-fan Kevin Smith, actor Mark Hamill and Lee's daughter J.C. Lee will be among those at a public remembrance and celebration at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

The evening will include speakers, musical performances, an art exhibit, and costumes and props from Lee's creations and Marvel-movie cameos.

The night is being called, "Excelsior! A Celebration of the Amazing, Fantastic, Incredible & Uncanny Life of Stan Lee."
