With the sad passing of comics legend Stan Lee, we are losing one of the greats in terms of character creators. From Spider-Man to Hulk, his heroes have stood the test of time, proving to be malleable to what era their stories are being told. With that in mind, we know the next couple years will work as an extended curtain call for the creator.

Fans will cheer that much louder when we see his cameos in the next few Marvel Studios films, and the same will happen if anything else out there is published with his hand in it. But at 95, was he even working on any new characters before his death? According to TMZ, yes, the man indeed was working on a character with his daughter J.C. Lee up until this past weekend, TMZ reports.

The character’s name? Dirt Man. Well, J.C. actually created the character, but apparently, Stan helped her actually develop him. So will we ever see this character in print or on the big screen? Based on the vague wording of the initial report. J.C. has plans to keep Stan Lee’s legacy going, and it sounds like Dirt Man may have some part in that.

So what do you think? Does Dirt Man sound like he has potential? Let us know your thoughts down below!
