I am proud to have been "there" before the fall of the almighty comic book.

Stan Lee had an almost divine influence on a young curly headed nerd that devoured comic after comic when he was but a lad. Marvel comics were my first true media addiction, long before vinyl. My collection eventually becoming vast, overwhelming and even iconic (Amazing Spiderman #20!). My vinyl collection will never compare.

Back when comic stores were abundant, you could generally find me hunkered down in the back reading one just purchased with change I had saved from doing odd jobs around the neighborhood. Rarely did I leave the store before having finished the new edition, cover to cover. An escape from the realities of my feelings of loneliness and melancholy.

I met the godfather of Marvel back in the late 80s. A larger-than-life persona whose secret identity was that of not a particularly mild-mannered writer. This visit propelled me to create several small comics of my own that I distributed to any stranger and friend alike that would give me just a moment of their time. For a while there, some were quite enamored with my work and it was all owed to the Man that gave birth to my initial eruption of creativity.

There are few that ever get to be as effortlessly cool and impossibly charming as Stan the Man Lee. He was a once in a lifetime titan of industry that forever shaped many a person's outlook on life, including my own. Whose vision helped turn around an entire industry with a singular idea—one that could be boiled down to "Superheroes! They're just like us!" Stan reshaped the print industry, the entertainment industry and frankly...the world as we know it. We're all just lucky to have been on a planet at the same time as the man who invented entire universes for a living.

There will never be another human with his naturally captivating brilliance that demonstrated his love for his audience and the characters we all could relate to. Thank you Stan for all of our childhoods and for shaping all of our adulthoods. You will never be forgotten.

EXCELSIOR!

Actually take the time to watch her full speech and convince me she's wrong. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=I5dbksVWdFQ&feature=youtu.be

The inevitable thing about not valuing and honoring voluntary consent from people is that you eventually find yourself on the receiving end of this inferior principle.
