There will never be another Stan Lee – a legend that has revolutionized the Hollywood scene, combining the big screen and animation of characters that are just so complex. Having to say his imagination is out of this world is an understatement. To me, he will continue to shine as the legend that has created legends.
Lee the man behind, introducing human frailties in Marvel superheroes such as Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Black Panther and the Incredible Hulk, was one of the most prolific comic book artists of our time.
Millions of people, men and woman, young and old loved the subtle and in your face messages that Marvel comics instantly exudes out with many of Lee’s characters. His heroes were a marked departure from the virtuous do-gooders like Superman or Batman, found in rival DC comics. Stan Lee created superheroes with hard edged characters, risk taking super-beings, gods and creatures. Some of his work family say he came up with a new comic book every day for ten years.
With his departure came plenty of family, friends and fans mourning over the loss of a true, the original superhero. Celebrities like Chris Evans (who plays Captain America in Marvel’s movies), Seth Rogan, Mike Coulter, and Jamie Lee Curtis were among the many celebrities offering their condolences after hearing the devastating news.
No one has had more of an impact on my career and everything we do at Marvel Studios than Stan Lee. Stan leaves an extraordinary legacy that will outlive us all. Our thoughts are with his daughter, his family, and his millions of fans. #ThankYouStan #Excelsior!

At age 7, I drew this weird portrait of Stan Lee and asked my Mom to send it to him. Thankfully she didn't because 30+ years later, I got to give it to the great one in person. Thanks for all the fun Stan #Excelsior pic.twitter.com/IpfYBSjWyf
