Stan Lee passed away last Monday at the age of 95 and the comic world is still in mourning.

Down in Metropolis, IL the Superman statue is paying tribute by dawning a black armband.

The Man of Steel statue stands out in front of the Super Museum, which is dedicated to the history and memorabilia to the famous Kryptonian.

Superman is a DC Comics character but paying tribute to the man who helped created such iconic Marvel superheroes as Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Black Panther, is the right thing to do.
