Scientists Name New Fly Species After Stan Lee & Marvel Characters

Australian scientists have named five recently discovered fly breeds after Marvel Comics characters Deadpool, Thor, Loki, Black Widow and real-life hero, the late, great, Stan Lee.

All 5 are robber flies, which are the assains of the insect world.

The fly named after Stan Lee appears to have a white mustache and sunglasses, while the Deadpool fly has back markings that are similar to his mask

These flys are just part of 165 new species- from flys to fish and birds- that have been discovered in the past year.
