The casts of Wolverine, X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four closed out Fox’s Comic-Con panel with an enormous selfie, but the biggest superhero moment actually came from Channing Tatum, as the Gambit star helped 92-year-old Stan Lee off the stage.

Just about every Fox superhero descended upon Hall H for the panel, sharing everything from Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine audition reel to the trailer for Deadpool (which was such a hit, they showed it twice). Toward the end of the panel, Lee and Tatum (in a Gambit T-shirt) made an appearance, and host Chris Hardwick took a selfie with the entire group to wrap things up. While everyone cheered and waved to the audience, Tatum helped the 92-year-old Lee off the stage, and the Internet went nuts.

Tatum himself geeked out over the panel, tweeting, “All sorts of dreams came true in #HallH today.”

Gambit is slated for an October 2016 release.
