New York lost Stan Lee, the legendary Marvel Comics creator, this week. Judy Berdy pulls from the Roosevelt Island Historical Society Archives to show how Lee used dramatic values of the Tram in November, 1980, as Spiderman plots a rescue. A keen observer, Lee included recognizable images of the power plant and the Roosevelt Island Bridge.
