METROPOLIS, Ill. — He may be a DC Comics hero, but the Superman that stands in Metropolis, Illinois, is honoring a fallen Marvel titan. Super Museum in Metropolis shared photos Wednesday of a worker strapping a black arm band on the town’s Superman statue.

“Our great city of Metropolis has put an black arm band on the Superman statue to honor the passing of the comic book icon Stan Lee,” Super Museum wrote.

The act shows that even though DC and Marvel have always been rivals, fans — and even the companies themselves — can look beyond their differences to recognize the greats.

Stan Lee, the patriarch of Marvel Comics and the real-life hero behind comic heroes like Iron Man and the Hulk, died at 95 on Monday.
