NEW YORK -- Stan Lee is considered a legend by many in the comic book world. Some even say he's the father of modern marvel comics.

And there likely wouldn't be a New York Comic-Con without him.

While he's always eager to meet fans and is usually front and center at conventions, the 93-year-old is slowing down and has announced that New York Comic-Con 2016 will mark his final appearance at the event, and will look to stick to events closer to his California home.

While there are no reports of him being in poor health, Lee has admitted in the past that his hearing and eyesight are failing, and at 93 probably deserves some much earned R&R.

But if you've been looking to meet the man behind some of your favorite Superheroes, you may want to head to the Javits Center, October 6-9, to see Lee take his final bow in the Big Apple.
