To say that Stanley Martin Lieber – a.k.a. Stan “The Man” Lee was a legend would be an understatement. The man’s impact on the world of not just comic books, or pop culture, but the world itself is not something one can begin to measure. And the impact the man’s work had on my own life – namely his co-creation Spider-Man – there’s just no words.
And of course, my personal favorite scene from my top favorite animated series.
RIP Stan Lee, and thank you for not just allowing us to escape, but for reinventing what a superhero is and should be, and for teaching us all real life lessons through your co-creations, from responsibility to self-acceptance and self-forgiveness and never give up on doing the right thing.
