R.I.P. Stan Lee

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

R.I.P. Stan Lee

I just saw this on Yahoo.

Stan Lee has passed away at age 95. The Marvel icon is gone. :(

He had to cancel his appearance at Wizard World Comic Con here last March due to bad health. I was sorry then, and I'm even sorrier now. I would have loved to attended his panel even if I couldn't have afforded a picture and/or autograph.

R.I.P good Sir. You will be greatly missed. :cry2:

Thank you so much for making a thread about this.

Stan Lee was one of my heroes, a true icon of literature who will be dearly missed - he brought joy and wonder and marvel to many generations of comic-book readers and, now, moviegoers. Thank you, Stan Lee, for inspiring me always.
My aunt met him in New York at a party, years ago - she saw him standing by the door in a black leather jacket, and she fell in love with his coolness. She went right over to him, not knowing who he was, and struck up a conversation: they talked for twenty minutes. Finally at the end, Stan introduced himself. My aunt still cherishes that memory.

Excelsior, Stan Lee! Rest in Peace, reunited with your wife and daughter.

The man had talent. :)

He will be missed, but I am glad he was with us for so many years. He will live on through his creations, in a way.

I miss him as well. He was a great artist and storyteller. And he made his characters human.

He definitely changed lives, that's for sure.
