Stan Lee SF GaintsComics icon and living legend Stan Lee paid a visit to AT&T Park, home of World Series Champions the San Francisco Giants, on July 7 as the Giants took on the Milwaukee Brewers. The home team paid tribute to Lee shortly before the game with a special event dubbed “The Stan Lee Experience,” featuring free food and drinks for fans, a raffle of comics signed by Lee and an exclusive print featuring Lee and Giants pitcher Sergio Romo. Giants mascot Lucille the Seal found herself dressed up in a Spider-Man costume specially tailored for the event.

Lee came out with Romo to thunderous applause from a large crowd filled with just as many orange and black Giants shirts as red and blue Spider-Man ones. Right off the bat, Lee tweaked the local fanbase when called San Francisco was his “second favorite city.” The crowd momentarily turned on him, letting loose a chorus of good-natured boos when he then revealed his favorite city was San Francisco’s biggest rivals “Los Angeles, cause I live there!”

However, Lee immediately swayed the crowd back on his side, pointing to the man at his side and saying, “Sergio is my first favorite ball player, though!” Lee and Romo then dove right into a Q&A session with fans, including both pre-submitted questions and ones directly from the audience.

Asked which of his creations was his favorite, an enthusiastic Lee responded, “My favorite character that I’ve created is my daughter! After that, I’m partial to a character, you may not have heard of him, called Spider-Man!”

Lee revealed he most relates to genius, billionaire, playboy Tony Stark, saying the resons why “should be obvious to all of you!”
