On January 17 1984, Stan Lee discussed Marvel Comics and Spider-Man with Alan Thicke on American talk show, Thicke of the Night.
The two discussed Spider-Man, Daredevil, Thor, Incredible Hulk and other Marvel Comics characters and how they encourage younger children and even adults to read.
Stan Lee went on to explain that Spider-Man relates to children all over the world because he wears a mask and acts like a regular high school kid.
Alan Thicke asked Stan Lee if adults read Marvel Comic books, and Stan responds with, "You'd be surprised at how many colleges I speak at and how many questions I get about the science of Doctor Strange!"
Alan Thicke passed away this evening and this interview with Stan Lee is just one of his many great memories.
The actor reportedly had a heart attack and was rushed to Providence St. Joseph's Medical Center around noon before he died. The actor had been playing hockey with his 19-year-old son when Thicke suddenly passed out.
The Canadian actor is best remembered for his work on the sitcom Growing Pains. The family friendly romp followed Thicke's character Dr. Jason Seaver as he began to work from home when his wife reignited her career as a reporter.
Thicke is survived by three children: Robin, Brennan, and Carter. His wife Tanya is also left behind.
Our thoughts are with the Thicke family tonight. Rest in peace, Alan Thicke.
