Celebrities offer thanks, condolences in death of Stan Lee

Stan Lee, the arch superhero of comic books, is dead at 95

The comic book legend, who famously created numerous Marvel Universe's beloved superheroes, died on Monday at 95 years old. Lee's cameos have become an extra treat included in the MCU films that many, if not all fans anxiously wait to spot in the film. Lee lived for a time in the Stony Brook area, and is among the most famous one-time residents of the Long Island community. But, at Comic-Con, no one felt more important than Stan "The Man".

Taking a moment during his promotional tour for The Front Runner, Hugh Jackman paid tribute to a man who had a massive impact on his career: Stan Lee.

The world was devastated yesterday to learn that comic book legend and chairman of Marvel, Stan Lee, passed away.

Tributes were led by Captain America star Chris Evans, who wrote: "There will never be another Stan Lee". They made him too big in the first two movies - I don't think he had to be as big as King Kong. Entertainment, has joined the mourning of the comic book creator who died on Monday.

Camsing International, the Chinese company that a year ago bought Stan Lee's POW!

His role in the second instalment of the Guardians of the Galaxy film speaking with Uatu and the watchers had fuelled speculations that Lee actually plays a watcher - a group of sentient extraterrestrials whose only function is to watch, record, and observe the passing of time.

Pop culture has embraced the comic world thanks to Lee and his innovative, relatable characters. "Stan and his creations, and the creations of the guys he collaborated with are characters that I grew up with ... when you lose a guy like that, it hits hard".

Lee prided himself on having a friendly rapport with fans and would answer questions in the letters pages with a personable and exuberant style, signing his correspondences with his signature phrase, "Excelsior!" The move was seen as a disrespectful dismissal to one of the company's founding fathers and Marvel's corporate leadership eventually signed Lee back on as a symbolic figurehead, cutting him a hefty seven-figure salary and participation on any profits made from TV and movie adaptations. "He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy".
