This year's 50th annual Comic Con in San Diego marks the first convention since the death of Stan Lee.

Three panels at the event starting today will honor the Marvel comics patriarch.  Lee is known by old-school comic fans as head writer and copy editor at the comic giant since the 1960s.  While younger and more mainstream fans know him from his many cameos in Marvel's super-hero films.  Stan Lee died last November at 95 years old.
