Stan Lee has announced that Fan Expo Canada will be his final Canadian appearance. The 93-year-old creator remains in good health and spirits, but wanted to make sure his appearance at the September show in Toronto was a special one.
“I want to make it dramatic and not just another visit,” Lee told the Toronto Sun. “If it’s my last one, it means something.”
Lee explained that he doesn’t know how much longer he’ll be able to travel the convention circuit, and that he wants to make sure he goes out with a bang.
“It’s so pleasant to go somewhere where people like you and want to hear what you have to say,” he says. “It’s very flattering. But I’m 93 years old. I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to do it. I want to make this one big event.”
Fan Expo Canada takes place Sept. 1-4, 2016 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
