In honor of the writer’s 100th birthday, Legion M will debut
exclusive apparel as part of “The Centennial Collection”
Los Angeles, California – July 13, 2022 – Legion M, the world’s first fan-owned entertainment company, has announced its selection of limited edition Stan Lee merchandise, The Centennial Collection, available only at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and at LegionM.com.
Coined as the “Godfather of Marvel Comics,” Lee was a trailblazer in the comic book universe, penning the iconic stories of Spider-Man, the X-Men, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, Ant-Man, the Wasp, the Fantastic Four, Black Panther, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, the Scarlet Witch, and Black Widow. Lee created a fantastical world that drew in millions of fans, and over the years has grown to be one of the largest fandoms in history.
“As a company that values the power of fandom, we at Legion M would like to honor and celebrate the amazing contributions Stan Lee made to his fans by launching The Centennial Collection,” said Mandy Bardisbanian, VP of Licensing & Merchandising.
Lloyd Mintz, SVP, Global Consumer Products at Genius Brands International, the company that controls the rights to the Stan Lee Universe in a joint venture with POW! Entertainment, stated: “We are excited to partner with Legion M to bring this exclusive collection of limited edition Stan Lee merchandise to the iconic creator’s legions of fans at Comic-Con this year. This is just one of many initiatives that Genius Brands has in development this year to commemorate what would have been Stan’s 100th birthday celebration this year!”
The Centennial Collection will feature an array of t-shirts, all paying homage to the late writer, Stan Lee. Each day of San Diego Comic-Con, an exclusive t-shirt will be available for that day only, while supplies last. All merchandise will be available for purchase at Booth #3917 and on LegionM.com.
