It is hard, they say, to forget someone who gave you so much to remember.
This quote seem so clear right now to me because the truth is …………………can we ever forget our Stan Lee???????
We all get anxious and excited when we hear “Marvel is releasing a new movie”, “Black Panther is coming out next month” or we hear “Iron man is back to the theaters”…etc…
Can we really forget the man behind this creations?????
Thomas Bailey Aldrich also said what is lovely never dies, but passes into other loveliness.
This is true because Stan lee will never die in our hearts and memories.
Who was Stan Lee?
Popularly known as Stan Lee, his real name is Stanley Martin Lieber. Stan Lee was our American comic book writer, editor and publisher. Born December 28, 1922. Died November 12, 2018. He was popularly known for creating most of the fictional characters we grew up watching on television.
Some the characters which he created includes :
- Spider man
- Iron man
- The hulk
- Black Panther
- Fantastic Four
- Doctor Strange
- Hawk eye
- Black Widow
- Nick Fury
- Captain Marvel
- Green Goblin
- Magneto e.t.c
Maybe we would forget so many heroes, but we will always remember the man who created the heroes.
Asides his creations, Stan lee was popular for his sunglasses. He was always on sunglasses, different kinds at that, and that is a complete mood on its own.
I don’t think I have ever seen a picture of Stan lee without Sunglasses. For each time he has appeared on screen, he has worn his sunglasses regardless of the role and that’s quite cool.
He is like our grandpa goals…old and trendy.
Stan Lee once said in an interview :
“I don’t know what it is. I’ve always worn sunglasses,” he replied. “They’re like my mask, I guess. It was probably just some silly affectation. When I was very young and just starting off as a writer, I always lit a pipe and held it in my teeth as I wrote. I hated smoking a pipe, but I felt it made me look older and like I writer. I was 18. Sunglasses are better for your health.”
We will definitely miss that old dude with his sunglasses and seeing Stan Lee on the screen either as that pizza guy or the random guy just walking by and his so many roles he has acted.
He didn’t have cloaks, didn’t have powers; but he inspired us to do better, taught us that imagination has no limit, that no matter who you are, you can achieve your goals. He helped us to live with our imaginations and his and will always be the best superhero of all time.
While we would miss seeing the legend in his sunglasses, it seems we still get the chance to see him soon… According to Joe russo(avengers director). Lee’s cameos were filmed consecutively with shots already filmed for releases in 2019😁😀…..
You will be severely missed Stan….Thank you for sharing your creativity with the world.
