It’s been a sad year for Marvel, 2018.
It will be remembered as year Stan Lee – the creative force behind Marvel’s success story – left this world at 95. Legendary Lee started the Marvel business in 1939 and was responsible for pushing it all the way up to today’s glory. The likes of Spider-Man, the X-Men, Iron Man or Black Panther, to only name the few, were either created or co-created by this feisty artist whose legacy will live forever.
Lee’s fame as Marvel’s face and figurehead will remain strong as long as his imaginations are with us. And as Marvel fans across the globe come to terms with his departure and the fact we won’t get to see his brilliant cameo roles anymore, a tribute to this great man is in order.
So how could we, mere mortals, pay homage to Stan Lee? The easiest way you could think of is to have a Marvel-lous New Year’s Eve celebration!
With that special moment coming up thick and fast people across the globe already have their plans in order, but here we’d like to suggest a night as fun as any can be but more affordable and the one any Marvel fan would truly appreciate.
Dressing Up as Marvel Character(s)
Home alone on New Year’s Eve?
Don’t let the mass media tell you otherwise, there’s nothing wrong in getting seduced by some solitude. Stan Lee prophesied it through his work and creations mainly considered to be social outcasts and rejects. Misunderstood. Underappreciated.
Even if you’re feeling the same or you’re just too busy/tired/annoyed or _________ (insert the correct answer) to be bothered by New Year’s Eve, there is always a solution to feel super good on the night in question.
You guessed it right – by donning your favourite superhero’s outfit.
Throwing a Marvel Costume Party
The idea is even better on a bigger scale so make sure to convince your spouse – or any other kind of significant other – and kids – or pets for that matter – to join you with the dress up. Better yet, a gang of superheroes at a party is definitely the best choice so throwing a Marvel costume mandatory party for your closest friends could turn out to be quite an intriguing night.
It does not to be anything fancy or at a particular venue. Your house would be as good a place as any, just make sure not to overdo it with alcohol as you could end up going through the Infinity War battle field in your living room.
Playing Marvel Games
Up for a more relaxing night on the special date? We hear you.
Lucky for us all, the great father of Marvel did not only revolutionise the comic book industry and reshaped the world of motion pictures and screenplays. Stan Lee’s Marvel also had a huge hand in remodelling the gaming industry. It’s a particular area of interest as it provides players with a unique chance to get themselves fully immersed into a role of their favourite Marvel superhero.
It all started through Marvel Card Games and worked its way up through technologically more advanced creations. Today, Marvel games are available on your Xbox and PlayStation consoles, but also the iPhone, iPad and Android devices, making them widely accessible and available for a general playing community. A booming online gaming vertical involved in the casino business was the latest to adopt a growing trend and great many popular slots based around movies and comics are here today to transport you into the astonishingly absorbing superhero universe.
Playing games on a New Year’s Eve – and especially Marvel ones which you have an abundance to choose from – will provide you with that extra kick and a rush, that will be a perfect way to turn a new set of 12 months ahead.
Watching a Marvel Movie Marathon
Keen on an ever slower pace? Say no more.
The most relaxing way to spend your New Year’s Eve – albeit you’ll need more than just an Eve – is to throw a Marvel movie marathon. A self-respecting Marvel fan/cinematography enthusiasts will revisit all of the titles every once in a while and what better time to watch them ALL than on New Year’s?
For those of you who don’t know the entire Marvel movie list by heart – but why wouldn’t you? – please consult this list before going any further.
Do not that it would take you 38 hours to go through the entire Marvel opus. And that’s without Avengers: Infinity War which is the longest of them all with 2 hours and 29 minutes. This takes the total runtime to 40 hours and 48 minutes so plan your time wisely.
You’re gonna need a lot of popcorn, that’s for sure.
