Throughout the four-minute clip Marvel Comics and The Walt Disney Company remember the legendary Stan Lee, as we get to hear from collaborators and company executives as they dish on the creative genius and his influential work. In addition, there are various interview excerpts with Lee himself.

In the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, Lee committed to Black Panther and created a representation for African Americans within comic books.
