28 DECEMBER 1922 - 12 NOVEMBER 2018
Stan Lee has inspired me since watching the Spider-Man cartoons on Saturday morning TV in my early teens.
Apart from the co‑creation of Spider‑Man, his collaboration with others at Marvel – especially Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko – he was part of the creation of a multi-million dollar Marvel Universe, that includes Black Panther (my second favourite film of all time), Thor, the Hulk, Dr Strange, Daredevil, Black Widow… and the Avengers themselves.
Following Avengers: Infinity War (yep… my favourite film of all time – I sat open mouthed and left the cinema dazed!), the release of Avengers: Endgame broke box office records, to become the fastest film to break the $1 billion dollar mark.
I heard of his death on the way to a workshop, so I opened the day with a tribute to an incredible man.
Simply, Thanks Stan!
