Stan Lee was non-arguably (for me) the best comics writer in the world. I've never had any direct connection with him or Marvel, and I've haven't even kept up with Marvel that much. However, a lot of his creations shaped my childhood, from the Hulk to Spider-Man. The only thing that made me look up to Stan Lee was his way of living. He once said that "Life is never completely without its challenges." and he always kept busy. His personality was also great, even during bad times. His death somehow affects everyone alike.
I remember Stan Lee best as the chairman of Marvel Comics. He had created many of the best-known comic characters. Some of his best-known ones were Spider-Man, The X-Men, The Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Daredevil, Black Panther, and Doctor Strange. Now, more and more people are finding out about this through social media. News stories are now covering this tragedy as seen below.
I'll keep the rest of this short, but Stan Lee's legacy will live on. It'll live on through me in many ways, reminding myself to stay busy each day. What Stan Lee did and made won't be forgotten, and the world will remember what he did. RIP.
