The former president and face of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, passed on at age 95 on Monday. The man had altered the course of pop culture forever, leaving behind globally recognized icons like Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Black Panther.

In their own ways, the world honored Lee’s legacy by presenting artworks and revealing quirks about him that had not been publicly known.

Even in his final days, Lee was spurred to create. Just a month before, a new superhero created by the comic book writer was introduced at the first Stan Lee Comic Universe event in Shanghai.

The character, ‘JEWEL’, would be the last superhero envisioned by Lee to be unveiled prior to his passing.

The heroine was inspired by acclaimed Chinese pop singer G.E.M., a Chinese pop singer who is affectionately known as “China’s Taylor Swift,” according to South China Morning Post.

By day, ‘JEWEL’ is a world-touring recording artist. By night, she’s a masked superhero. Per Billboard, the character develops superpowers following an incident that involved her grandmother and a charm bracelet. What her superpowers might be have yet to be announced.

Lee’s muse for ‘JEWEL’, singer-songwriter Gloria Tang Tsz-kei—who goes by the stage name G.E.M.—has a massive following of more than 28 million users on Weibo.

“Never had I thought I would become a superhero one day!” G.E.M. exclaimed on Instagram last month. “Super excited!”

According to Stan Lee Studio’s Chinese social media page, Lee had always wanted to create a Chinese superhero, but his encounter with the pop star in Hong Kong in December 2017 further motivated him to put pen on paper.

Following his death, G.E.M. took to Instagram to bid farewell to Lee, describing him as “one of the sweetest and humblest” people she had met.

“You have been a big, big inspiration to the world… Thanks for empowering and encouraging so many people and [helping] them believe in themselves. Thanks for everything that you have done! We’ll miss you, Stan Lee!”
