What a man. What a life.
When I first broke into Hollywood, he welcomed me with open arms and some very sage advice I’ll forever take to heart.
A true icon who impacted generations around the world.

"The world has always been like a comic book to me"
To say his characters, his stories and the Universe he created have had an influence on me would be the ultimate understatement..
Thank you for the joy, the escape and the continued inspiration.

RIP Stan Lee, part of my life since my 10 year monthly #Hulk subscription started in 1973. I loved talking to him at Comic Cons – Stan was a wrestling fan –
and will always look forward to my children shouting out his @Marvel movie cameos. pic.twitter.com/0KV26dCv8f

Stan Lee’s daughter J.C. broke the news of his father’s death. Speaking to TMZ, she only had good words for his father. “My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man.” Stan Lee co-created with Jack Kirby some of the most iconic Marvel superheroes, including Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Doctor Strange, and X-men, among others. We here at FOX Sports Asia extend our condolences to Stan Lee’s family and friends.
Excelsior and beyond, Stan Lee!
