TORONTO — Comic book icon Stan Lee volunteered Saturday to snap the world’s most epic superhero selfie.

Chris Hardwick, host of the 20th Century Fox presentation at Comic Con in San Diego, assembled stars from Fantastic Four, Wolverine, X-Men Apocalypse and Deadpool on stage and then called on Lee to take the picture.

“I want to tell you, this is ridiculous,” Lee told the cheering crowd.

“I’m gonna take the picture and get it over with. You think I can just do cameos. I’m one of the great photographers.”

All that was missing was a camera.

Channing Tatum, who will soon play Gambit, emerged holding a selfie stick equipped with an iPhone.

Lee, 92, didn’t end up actually taking the photo but got into position next to Hardwick for the all-star pic.

Among those in the photo: Wolverine‘s Hugh Jackman; X-Men: Apocalypse stars Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Olivia Munn, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Sophie Turner; Fantastic Four stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell and Michael B. Jordan; and Deadpool‘s Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin and T.J. Miller.
