He threw out the first pitch and spoke to ABC7 News about one of his greatest joys.

"One thing I get a real kick out of is kids that come dressed as various Marvel superheroes. And it's always a thrill, I see little Spidermen and Little Captain Americas and little Thors running around. I just love it," said Lee.

Lee said former Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo was his kind of real-life superhero.

Lee is known world-wide for creating hundreds of comic book characters, including The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Iron man, The amazing Spider-Man, and Captain America.

Lee died Monday. He was 95.

Disney is the parent company of both Marvel and ABC7.
