"Please join us in remembering Stan "The Man" Lee". But what does it mean and why were fans saying it?

"Generally it's been wonderful", Lee said. "He co-created it with Jack Kirby". After Timely became Atlas and the WWII-era superhero fad cooled, Lee worked on romance, monster, and cowboy comics.

Biloups said Lee's stories and characters introduced him to topics and ideas that made him who he is today. You gave us characters that continue to stand the test of time and evolve with our consciousness. The footage is plastered with various footage and photos of Lee throughout the years, much of it in his later years, during which, he still maintained his youthful and energetic spirit. With Steve Ditko, Stan Lee co-created Doctor Strange and Spider-Man. People respond to that.

The Marvel approach was to humanize its superheroes, giving them flaws and foibles that felt fresh in comparison to the prevailing execution from rival DC Comics. They fought amongst each other.

Marvel's Sana Amanat, vice president of content and character development, gives one of the most poignant descriptions of Lee's contributions: "He's the heart of the Marvel universe".

"Those movies have been very, very successful". "Speaking of the F4, Lee wrote in 1974 that, ".it would be a team such as comicdom had never known. they'd be fallible and feisty and, most important of all, inside their colourful, costumed booties they'd still have feet of clay".

Taking on politics, the "Red Scare" and presenting anti-heroes as protagonists in their comics, Lee and his team moved the comic world forward. Even as a burgeoning comic fan, McFarlane recognized Lee's name, since every single Marvel comic came with the tagline "Stan Lee Presents". "And with great power comes great responsibility". That's precisely how Stan Lee lived his life, and he achieved massive amounts of success in doing so. Since moving on from Marvel, he has remained in the public eye largely thanks to the success of Marvel's movies where he is listed as executive producer and can be spotted in many obvious-yet-endearing cameos. "I'm proud to have been a small part of his legacy have helped bring one of his characters to life". "My thoughts and prayers go out to his daughter and brother at this time", said Ike Perlmutter, Chairman of Marvel Entertainment on their website.
