The show features show replicas from the center's collection of Lee's materials, while & # 39; It is one of the places still living in the debating chamber for its & # 39; reach the public, said William Hopkins, the center manager at the center.
"It's an interesting collection about the human being and its impact on people's lives," said Hopkins, who said that the exhibition should be open for several weeks.
Lee said in the 2012 interview that he was encouraged for archive material in Laramie that Jack Benny's humorous actress was archived there. Lee started the UW collection in 1981.
Lee left a legacy in the comic book business by creating fictional characters of mythical sharing with stories that could be used for their own lives, Hopkins said.

Many people support Lee's characters, he said, even if they do not know who to create. The Marvel film licensing, in which Lee often cameo, has become a fantastic Hollywood event in recent years.
"You look at the films, and the television and the books and everything we consider as classical or important work, they have a fundamental link to the lives of people," said Hopkins .

"He made a tweet about it, interviewed us and guided others in the funny business so we could incorporate the archive into our archive."
In the mid-90s, the venue created an exhibition of the Stan Lee Archive when he visited the campus, and pieces are displayed here and there over the years. For the first time in more than two decades, a & # 39; Most of that exhibition was back for the temporary exhibition, Hopkins said.
The exhibition may be small compared to what a museum exhibit, but Hopkins has a small portion of over 100 Lee's leg boxes. It invites visitors to explore the material.
The center has six text panels that define the largest search areas, and # 39; including Wyoming and the West, economic geology and entertainment industry.
"Stan Lee has a small balloon at his own, it is about four square feet and describes his / her impact on the comic book and culture industry loved him, who grew over a year, "said Hopkins. "And, indeed, of course, many films have created characters that created it, so its impact on a popular culture was great."
