Marvel legend, Stan Lee and Harry Potter creator, J.K. Rowling have officially been inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.
The Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) announced this year’s class of new inductees into its Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame which, in addition to Lee and Rowling, include the video game series The Legend of Zelda, and Joss Whedon’s beloved series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The new inductees will be featured in MoPOP’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame exhibition later this year.
Stan Lee is responsible for the creation of numerous Marvel Comics characters including Spider-Man, Black Panther, and the X-Men.
J.K. Rowling has also had an undeniably massive impact on pop culture with the creation of Harry Potter. Her seven novels, which kicked off with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in the U.K. in 1997, published as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the U.S., went on to sell millions and win several awards including a Hugo Award and National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year.
Warner Bros. went on to adapt her books into one of the most successful movie franchise of all time. Rowling is now involved as the screenwriter in the spin-off series of movies, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which has a sequel set to arrive in November of this year.
