Stan Lee_White Castle Cravers HOF 2017-1

In a special ceremony in front of fans and media, White Castle welcomed comic legend and Marvel Chairman Emeritus, Stan “The Man” Lee into the White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame. A big fan of White Castle since his childhood years spent in New York City, Stan Lee joins rock icon Alice Cooper and the stars of “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” John Cho and Kal Penn, as a full-fledged member of this exclusive club.

White Castle welcomed comic book legend and former Bronxite Stan Lee into the White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame. A big fan of White Castle since his childhood years spent in Washington Heights and the Bronx, Stan Lee joins rock icon Alice Cooper and the stars of “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” John Cho and Kal Penn, as a full-fledged member of this exclusive club.

“Stan is the ingenious creator of Spider-Man™, The Incredible Hulk™, X-Men™ and so many others – he has the incomparable power to create legendary superheroes that are favorites in homes around the world!” said Jamie Richardson, Vice President of White Castle. “It turns out, while we grew up on his comics, he grew up on our sliders. The Cravers Hall of Fame was founded to celebrate a shared love of White Castle, and, now Stan Lee will forever be celebrated among the elite Cravers!”

Stan Lee is no stranger to Hall of Fame inductions. Lee was inducted into the comic book industry’s Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995. This was White Castle’s turn to induct Lee in true Craver fashion. Stan Lee was honored with a custom plaque and a host of surprise gifts, including a framed photograph of the first White Castle Lee visited as a child, an official identification badge granting unlimited access to the employee cafeteria in Columbus, OH, and a guarantee of one Crave Case per month for as long as he would like.

“Growing up in Washington Heights and the Bronx, I loved White Castle. The infamous slider was a favorite then, just as it remains today over 85 years later!” said Lee. “I am grateful to White Castle for recognizing my lifelong Crave-ings and honored to join past and future Craver Hall of Fame inductees. And to be perfectly honest, I’m also looking forward to receiving my Crave Case each month from White Castle!”

The Cravers HOF 2017 induction ceremony coincided with the grand opening of Stan Lee’s Excelsior Collectibles store in Brea, CA.
