Tribute to Stan Lee 1922 - 2018
The creator of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee passed away yesterday at the grand age of 95. It's a sign of the impact that Stan had that his passing attracted so much attention across mainstream media.
Besides making Marvel Comics the premier comics publishing company in the United States, his characters have captured the public imagination since the sixties through such titles as Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four and so many others including The Incredible Hulk, Thor, The Avengers, Doctor Strange, the Black Panther not forgetting the X-Men, Daredevil and the Silver Surfer.
A whole fictional universe in which all of his heroes co-existed. For the first time there was "continuity" within a publishers comics which along with making his character falwed with very human problems despite their superpowers changed the industry forever.
And so did it's fans. As the Marvel Universe became more complex, it's readers stayed loyal and grew up with these comics which meant comics had to grow up with us.
That is his legacy.
These are some of his creations:
There are so many more but this meme I found on a Facebook page sums up Stan's contribution to our entertainment.
