As a lot of Marvel fans know, Stan Lee happens to use the phrase "Excelsior!" as his sign off. But what exactlly does it mean? Well, I decided to look it up.

The Dictonary states that Excelsoir means:

  • fine curled wood shavings used especially for packing fragile items
  • still higher —motto of New York

In my opinion, he probably means the second one, as most of the heroes in Marvel reside in New York City. Anyways, if you guys wanted to know what he meant, there is it.

'Nuff said.
