Stan Lee's final animated cameo will take place in this Sunday's episode of Avengers: Black Panther's Quest, but you can watch it now.
According to Marvel.com. the legendary creator will appear in the episode, which is titled "T'Chanda," alongside guest stars Mark Hamill and Hayley Atwell. The episode will take place in the 1940s and feature Lee as the voice of an army general. The clip shows Lee's character calling out Arnim Zola for his hatred and threats.
"That particular episode [of Marvel's Avengers: Black Panther's Quest] has personal meaning for me," said Marvel’s Senior Vice President, Animation & Family Entertainment, Cort Lane. "I believe it’s his last recorded appearance in animation. It’s bittersweet, but I’m so glad we were able to capture a message that was very true to how Stan felt about the world and that inspired him to write a lot of the stories that he did.”
Lane also noted that Lee's speech in the show was inspired by his famous 1968 Stan’s Soapbox column in which he decried bigotry and racism.
Lee passed away in November at 95-years-old. The legendary creator helped create some of the most popular comics heroes and villains, including Black Panther, whom he co-created with Jack Kirby in 1966's Fantastic Four #52. Lee was also known for his cameos in various mediums.
