Blizzard celebrates Stan Lee with World of Warcraft character

The late creator has been honoured many times, and now an in-game character has been discovered on Blizzard's MMO.

Last year the world lost one of the most iconic comic book creators, Stan Lee, and while he's already been commemorated several times on different media platforms, he's yet to receive a dedicated in-game character in his memory... until now.

World of Warcraft fansite Wowhead has discovered a new character in Stormwind that was added through Patch 8.1.5, which is currently being tested on the game's PTR test servers.

The character is named 'Stanley' and shares the late creator's likeness, even exclaiming "Excelsior!" now and again. Apparently a Horde-themed character model has also been unearthed, meaning that a Horde equivalent might also be heading into the game.

You can see Wowhead discovering the character here. Is this a fitting tribute?
