After Stan Lee’s death earlier this week, we wanted to know his impact on the comic book universe.
We polled 1,000 Americans, and here are their favorite Stan Lee superheroes.
Spider-Man is by far America’s favorite Stan Lee superhero, followed by Iron Man, The X-Men, and The Hulk.
Here is the full range of answers:
Iron Man 9%
The X-Men 9%
The Hulk 7%
Black Panther 5%
Doctor Strange 3%
The Fantastic Four 3%
Black Widow 1%
Scarlet Witch 1%
I Don't Know 15%
While we love Spider-Man, this doesn’t tell the full story. When we look at ethnic differences, we see that Stan Lee created a universe for everyone.
Among our Asian respondents, Spider-Man is vastly preferred over any other superhero. Among our African American respondents, Black Panther is in close running for favorite super-hero, at 23% preference vs. 25% preference for Spider-Man.
Stan Lee set out to inspire people, and damned if he didn’t do it.
We also asked people what Stan Lee meant to them. Here are some of the greatest hits.
You will be missed by so many. RIP.
