It's a Marvel movie tradition to pay homage to legendary writer Stan Lee by having him appear in some random scene in every comic book adaptation that has hit the big screen since 2000. After all, where would the X-Men, Hulk and Spider-Man be today without their creator?

Of course, some Marvel franchises like the 'Ghost Rider' films and  'Elektra' failed to see the legend make an appearance -- but that's not necessarily a bad thing given how those movies turned out. First posted on Reddit, here's a GIF compilation of every cameo made by the comic book icon in the Marvel movies of the last decade.

Well, the good films at least. (Spoiler warning: The cameo from the recently released 'The Amazing Spider-Man' is also included below.)
