MegaCon Tampa Bay and Stan Lee have formed the ultimate superhero league in order to help the victims of Hurricane Irma. In addition to MegaCon donating $5 to Feeding Florida for each of the next 2,000 tickets bought online, Stan Lee will be auctioning off some extra-special treats for fans.

Stan Lee will be auctioning off special experiences, including a one-on-one meal with him, as well as art from his personal collection. “Florida is in need of some cheering up and what better person to do that than the one and only Stan Lee! We are excited to be bringing Stan to Tampa Bay for the first time and to work with him to support those communities impacted by Hurricane Irma,” Andrew Moyes, vice president of FanExpo HQ, said in a statement.

When not playing auctioneer, Lee says he will find other things to keep him busy. "I'll be signing autographs and taking pictures and wandering around talking to fans. If I can find any. I might find one or two," he quipped.

MegaCon is the southeast's largest fan convention. This year's festivities take place on Sept. 29 through Oct. 1. Some of the other guests scheduled to appear include Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries); Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes (Clerks); William Shatner; Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLoughlin (Stranger Things); Katie Cassidy and John Barrowman (Arrow); and James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
