Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee died at the age of 95, but he left a major impact on the Earth bringing to life the Marvel Universe and creating hundreds if not thousands of characters to populate that universe.
Comic book professionals as well as celebrities and more honored the passing of Stan Lee. They all remembered him their own way; a testament to just how much of an impact Stan Lee had on the world around me.
I didn’t expect to feel this down today. But, even though I’m doing what I love, drawing comics, my mind lingers on the loss of Stan Lee. But, he’d want me to keep on drawing and smiling. So, I try. 🤘🏻✏️😊

Thought for today: Marvel's international box office now sits at just under $20 Billion over the last 40 years making Stan Lee the highest-grossing Hollywood producer of all time. pic.twitter.com/p8Sj2kwUsw

Thanks for everything Stan Lee! What a life, so well lived. I consider myself extraordinarily lucky to have gotten to meet you and to have played in the world you created.

There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!

Deeply saddened to hear about Stan Lee's passing. Out with the kids and can't do this one justice today. Was lucky enough to meet Stan early in my career -I was introduced to him as a newbie- & he said: don't look so nervous kid, all the good stuff is just ahead… #excelsior

Stan Lee has caught the last web out. He's one of the three maybe four, contributors to the field who fired my interest in writing and drawing stories for mainstream American comics. Thrilled to have been able to work with him. Godspeed, pal.https://t.co/EhJ8iY5qcn pic.twitter.com/nX8advOdvT

THREAD FOR STAN LEE.
Stan Lee gave us more than co-creations X-Men, Iron Man, Hulk, Fantastic Four & Spider-Man. He gave us creeds to live by. Principles to emulate. Villains (and racism) to fight. He gave me vital cornerstones of my belief system. My sense of responsibility. pic.twitter.com/KxUpP7m23h

As I'm sitting here trying to put words in the mouths of the characters he made immortal, characters that have literally changed my life, all I can really come up with is: Thank you, Stan.

Stan Lee left this universe today. At 95 in our Earth years.
This painting is based on a photo of Stan & I. He has his arm around me in the photo and we had just been discussing writing Daredevil. It's a sentimental moment for me.

No writer or their work has ever had as profound an effect on my life as that of Stan "The Man" Lee. In the history of the written word, no one even comes close. His stories will live on for every generation. Never "The End". Always "To Be Continued…"

Stan Lee created Sergei Kravinoff, better known to the world as Kraven the Hunter. I named David and Dawn Craven after him. Art by @Cap_White and Kid Ikaris https://t.co/N3LXrs84vE #StanLee #StanLeeForever #StanLeeRIP #StanTheMan #Excelsior pic.twitter.com/pgbL2Yp43p

Today we lost one of the greats. @TheRealStanLee, you were a inspiration and superhero to us all. Thank you for contributing so much- and giving us all something to aspire to! 💚

I don’t have words for this. My life has been so incredibly changed by this mans creations and words. I’m going to celebrate him today by putting in the work and writing his characters the absolute best way I know how.
Thank you, Stan.
I love you, True Believers.

Devastated by my pal Stan's passing. He was a childhood inspiration, an instructor to me when I was just getting started and a genuinely sweet man. Will miss him terribly.

As for me, Stan Lee’s world of characters reignited my creative spirit. He was able to take me into a world of escape and adventure where superheroes were real, but they were made super not because of their powers or abilities, but because of how they handled tough situations. They might have been defeated, but they would find a way to overcome either through their own ingenuity, but more often than not through the efforts of their friends and teammates. Stan Lee’s characters and worlds showed me determination and will to keep trying no matter how often you fail.
While Stan Lee is gone, his creations and worlds will continue on and they will continue to inspire countless readers, movie goers, TV watchers, fanatics, and of course true believers!
