Marvel's Agent Carter is getting a visit from a comic-book legend. But don't expect him to swoop in with superpowers, because he doesn't wear tights (as far as we know).

Stan Lee, the icon who created Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk and others, will make a cameo in an upcoming episode of the ABC-Marvel television series, TVLine reports. Lee will appear in the episode "The Blitzkrieg Button," set to air on Jan. 27.

Lee, a former president and chairman of Marvel Comics, is known for making cameos in television and film productions of Marvel properties. He created many of the superheroes that are currently filling Marvel's wallets. Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), the central figure of Agent Carter, was created by Lee.

In the episode, Lee will "play a man who has a brief interaction" with Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper). As usual, it will be a lighthearted appearance.
