Stan Lee is making his triumphant return to Florida, despite proclaiming the state "worse than Ohio". The cause is a good one though, as it will support victims of Hurricane Irma. Lee is coming to MegaCon Tampa Bay and is working with the organizers to raise money.

"I feel there's something everybody has to do to help the victims of the weather, of the hurricane," Lee said. "And if I can do my part by auctioning some stuff off, I'm more than happy to do it."

Lee is auctioning off a one-on-one meal, as well as artwork from his personal collection, during his panel on Friday. Convention organizer Andrew Moyes said they're also donating $5 each from 2,000 tickets sold online to Feeding Florida, a statewide network of food banks that are providing storm victims with food and emergency supplies. Between the auction and ticket sales, MegaCon Tampa Bay and fans should donate an estimated $20,000 for hurricane relief.

Lee wasn't originally going to appear at the con, but is happy to help the hurricane victims.

"I keep saying, I've got to slow down somehow," Lee said. "And then I hear that there's a new convention, and I can't resist. I've got to be in it."

MegaCon Tampa Bay runs from Sept. 29-Oct. 1 at the Tampa Convention Center.
