Twitchy reported on this story yesterday. Since then, the campaign to persuade Stan Lee to meet with Taft High School shooting victim Bowe Cleveland has gotten its own hashtag: #StanLeeMeetBowe. The effort has really taken off, with Taft students leading the way and others joining in:

Lee is creator or co-creator of Spider-Man and many other Marvel Comics characters. He tweeted about the shooting yesterday:

He has not yet responded to the requests for an in-person meeting with Cleveland.

It’s less than 2-hour drive from Los Angeles to the Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield, Calif. How about it, Mr. Lee?

    Wow, what a wonderful thing to be 90 years old and have teenagers idolize you.

    Why are people making a hero and asking Stan Lee to visit a kid that many other kids say was bullying his attacker, leading to the attack in the first place? I’m glad the kid didn’t die, but it doesn’t sound like he deserves a reward for his bad behavior.

      He really isn’t a bad guy; he just liked to be the class clown and went too far. And Stan Lee is asking for a way to contact his family! Sounds like a good sign.
