I think it would be an understatement to say we lost a giant. Stan Lee lived an amazing life and left a legacy in Marvel, creating the X-Men, Black Panther, Iron Man and so many other iconic heroes. He was a true trailblazer, unafraid to write about what he believed in or what might be considered controversial at the time.
He wrote stories that represented people, and not just one type of person, but all people. He shaped generations, highlighting his craft and medium in the most astounding way.
He will be missed.
I never met Stan Lee but I think if I had of, I would have let him know how much the characters that he created meant to me and how they inspire all of us to be super in even the littlest things we do.
In honor of Stan, I have to give a shout out to a book he wrote that has helped me tremendously. Stan Lee’s How To Write Comics is a great book to read if you have a story but aren’t quite sure what to do to get it made into a comic. It helped me as I was starting the road to publishing and gave me a lot of solid advice that I use to this day. Maybe you can’t meet Stan but he sure can still impact your life.
Stan Lee will forever be an icon in the comic and superhero worlds. We are saddened to see him go and wish his family peace in this time of grief.
