R.I.P., Stan Lee.

Excelsior.

Gloriosus
the G-man Himself
Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, so that all may profit by it.
Let me think of the right and lend my assistance to all who may need it, with no regard for anything but justice.
Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens, and my associates in everything I say and do.
Let me do right to all, and wrong no man.

Stan Lee helped make the world a more Marvelous place.  The characters he created will live for many, many centuries to come.  They have inspired so many people throughout the world and will continue to do so.

He was always a friendly face at conventions, and just an all around nice guy to be around.  Any Marvel movie made now will feel empty without his cameos.

A piece of you will live on forever with the characters you created, but you will be sorely missed, Stan Lee.

R.I.P., sir.  And... Excelsior!

Stan was a likeable and accessible guy for the most part. Back in the 70's he and his artists used to tour schools and show kids their drawing skills. Never came to my school, but came to my brother's school and left a huge, lasting impression. He created a generation of young people eager to pursue careers in comics, animation, related fields.

There was real genius in many of the comic-book series of the 50's and 60's. Some of the comics I remember from those decades are: The Atom, Dr Solar, Man Of The Atom, Lost In Space (the original, not the tv show), Captain America (back when he had spaghetti arms), Dr Strange, Spider Man, lots of war comics, too many to mention here.

It had to happen, but this is truly a sad moment. Stan Lee practically taught me to read in the early 60s-- and write (my teachers had to keep telling me that not every sentence must end in an exclamation point). His larger-than-life characters and imaginative stories and ethical worldview was the first thing that inspired me to create my own stories.  His stylized dialogue and prose, like that of Shakespeare and Rod Serling, was unique and still rings in my ears.  His heroes, his entire universe, have become modern mythology, an integral part of our culture-- true Americana.  There are few creators who have touched so many hearts and minds in their lifetime; his impact on the world is truly immeasurable.

RIP, Stan The Man.  Excelsior!
