The World Remembers Comic Book Legend Stan Lee
Today, we lost comic book legend, Stan Lee, at the age of 95.
Stan Lee was a man that was a huge part of our childhoods with his amazing imagination. He helped shaped those childhoods and helped us believe that we too could be superheroes ourselves. He defied the odds and made the impossible, possible. He was a true icon that has impacted generations all across the world.
The genius began his business in 1939 and created Black Panther, X-Men, Daredevil, The Hulk, Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, and so many other phenomenal characters. TMZ was the first to break the news of Stan’s passing. The Marvel Co-creator was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical center, where it is reported that he died.
Marvel stars and fans from across the world remembered the impact that Stan had on their lives. Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, tweeted that there will never be another Stan Lee.
There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!
