Jimmy Kimmel remembered his idol, the late Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, by sharing a drawing he made of him as a kid.

In the “Tonight with Jimmy Kimmel” host’s drawing of Lee, the comics icon can be seen wearing a superhero costume and holding a pencil as his weapon. Kimmel posted his remembrance of Lee on Tuesday, Nov. 13.


Kimmel also shared a story about his drawing: “At age 7, I drew this weird portrait of Stan Lee and asked my Mom to send it to him.” However, his mother was not able to send it.

Still, he said he was thankful Lee never received it then. Why? Because he was later able to personally give it to Lee, whom he called “the great one,” some 30 years later.


Netizens had several reactions on the post, such as Washington Post columnist Holly Figueroa O’Reilly who said she laughed at Kimmel’s drawing until she cried, particularly for its unique depiction of the icon as having “giant boobs, dirty knees, tiny waist…”

Meanwhile, FeliciaC  (@FeliciaC15) said she could not believe that the host was a good artist at 7 years old. She even disputed that he may have been 12 at the time he sketched the drawing.

Another, Mulan (@scrunch_ie), lauded Kimmel for having “mad skills” to draw his portrait of Lee.

Lee died on Monday, Nov. 12, at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, United States, at age 95. Tributes soon poured in from Marvel movies stars, such as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo, among others. JB
