(LOS ANGELES) -- Stan Lee was treated like a real hero on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday. The 88-year-old, who created many of Marvel Comics' signature superheroes, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, the X-Men, The Incredible Hulk and The Fantastic Four, received the 2,428th star on the famed sidewalk.
At the ceremony, Lee said he wanted to share the honor with his superhero creations. He joked, "I hope the X-Men and The Hulk and Spider-Man are appreciative."
Speaking of Spider-Man, Lee is confident that Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark, the Broadway musical based on the web-slinger, will be a success, despite injuries suffered by cast members and other setbacks. Lee said he's seen a rehearsal and called it "fantastic," and thinks the show will be a "monster hit."
