I always joke about "having dinner with him", even though my friends and I just happened to be at a table across form he and his wife at a hotel at SDCC in 1993. Still I was glad to have met him (on a different occasion), and he was part of an amazing group of writers and artists that gave us much of the pop culture we enjoy
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

A man who helped shape the face of popular culture for the last five decades... and untold decades to come. How many lives has he touched? I myself cannot even begin to imagine how I would have turned out were it not for Marvel comics & Stan Lee. Likely it wouldn't've been so good, and that's no lie. I knew & feared this day would be coming, but that sure doesn't make it any easier. He & I share the same birth date and it's gonna be a lonely one this year without him. Godspeed, Stan. You did good. :cry:

Despite some unfortunate elder abuse there at the end, he lived to a very old age and got to see the properties he co-created become the biggest things in pop culture on the planet Earth. That's a great run!

Almost had the chance to meet him in the early 2000s. Unfortunately, it was an opportunity missed.

I'm glad that Stan Lee lived to see so many of the characters he created or co-created brought to life so vividly in film and television. This was him at the Marvel Studios 10th anniversary event in October of last year:

On top of all of his signature cameos in most Marvel film adaptations to date, his wife Joan Lee joined him onscreen in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.




Stan and Joan were married for 69 years until she passed last year, so I'm glad he didn't have to go too long without her. They both spent the vast majority of their lives together and that's the biggest success story here.

So much of what I have loved in comics you can attribute to Stan Lee. I did meet the man, many years ago.

Back in the spring of 1981 the comics store that I and my friend Martin frequented in downtown Colorado Springs (I think it was still a Mile Hi Comics branch then) had Stan Lee appear for a comic book signing. Obviously heady stuff for a pair of teens who were nuts for comics.

So the big day arrived and we showed up along with a crowd of other fans. And then Martin realized that he had already bought every Marvel comic that he collected for that month. He hadn't brought one with him, and in those days of being on a limited income (iow our allowances), he could either buy a copy of one he already had or one he didn't collect and may not have liked. It also meant that he wouldn't be able to buy the latest issue of his favorite book, DC's Warlord by Mike Grell. So Martin made the decision to ask Stan Lee to sign the Warlord comic.

As we stood in line Martin got more and more nervous that he had made a mistake and that he would be turned down by Stan and be made a laughingstock in the store. But when his turn came up and he set the comic down, Stan Lee after hearing Martins explanation said, "Well no ones ever asked me to sign a DC before, but don't worry about it kid." And then signed the comic with a smile.

Stan Lee could have turned Martin down gently on that or gotten indignant about signing a work from the competition. But he was gracious and kind to a scared kid, and showed that he was as much about comic book fans as he was about the company that he grew into an iconic part of American culture. For that he will always be "Stan the Man" to Martin and myself.

Stan Lee's passing really is the end of an era -- he was there working at Timely Comics in the beginning of the Golden Age and be one of those that who would heavily shape comics in the subsequent decades.

RIP Stan Lee -- Excelsior!

It's a pity that he died. He will be missed. It's a good thing that he died before the company that he helped created will be put out of business. :cry:

^ Jelly, all companies will eventually go out of business. It's only a matter of whether the companies we found will go out of business in our respective lifetimes.
