Από χτες το βράδυ που ο Stan Lee, ο αρχιτέκτονας των υπερηρωικών κόμιξ έφυγε από τη ζωή, η έκφραση αγάπης και εκτίμησης προς το πρόσωπό του και την κληρονομιά του έχει ξεπεράσει κάθε προηγούμενο. Λογικό, απόλυτα λογικό – αφού κανένας άλλος άνθρωπος δεν έχει συνδέσει το όνομα και τη ζωή του με αυτήν την πλευρά της pop κουλτούρας περισσότερο από τον Stan Lee.
Και γι’ αυτό, όλοι έχουν να τον ευχαριστήσουν για κάτι. Από τους μεγάλους παίχτες της κινηματογραφικής βιομηχανίες και τους καλλιτέχνες των κόμιξ μέχρι τους ηθοποιούς που ενσάρκωσαν τους χαρακτήρες του στη μεγάλη οθόνη κι όλους εμάς που τους απολαύσαμε. Αυτά εδώ, λοιπόν, είναι τα τελευταία αντίο στον μεγάλο Stan Lee που μας άγγιξαν περισσότερο.
He changed the way we look at heroes, and modern comics will always bear his indelible mark. His infectious enthusiasm reminded us why we all fell in love with these stories in the first place. Excelsior, Stan.

Devastated by my pal Stan's passing. He was a childhood inspiration, an instructor to me when I was just getting started and a genuinely sweet man. Will miss him terribly.

I was first interviewed for Stan Lee's obituary about 20 years ago. I was happy he defied the reaper and carried on. With Stan gone, an era really does come to an end. He was the happy huckster that comics needed. And he really did alliterate like that when you talked to him.

Stan Lee changed my life not once but twice. First when I was a kid and realised the superheroes I loved in comic-books and on TV could actually be a job. Then he did it again when I was working at Marvel and he convinced to start my Millarworld company.

There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!

We’ve lost a creative genius. Stan Lee was a pioneering force in the superhero universe. I’m proud to have been a small part of his legacy and …. to have helped bring one of his characters to life. #StanLee #Wolverine pic.twitter.com/iOdefi7iYz

No one has had more of an impact on my career and everything we do at Marvel Studios than Stan Lee. Stan leaves an extraordinary legacy that will outlive us all. Our thoughts are with his daughter, his family, and his millions of fans. #ThankYouStan #Excelsior!

His contribution to Pop Culture was revolutionary & cannot be overstated. He was everything you hoped he would be & MORE. I loved this man & will never stop missing him. They say you should never meet a childhood idol. They are wrong. #RIPStanTheMan pic.twitter.com/6OKH07ahJg

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.

TMZ is reporting that Stan Lee has died at age 95. Feeling enormous sadness right now. He meant so much to so many, it's almost hard to find the words to put it in proper perspective. RIP Stan the Man.

Born before Edwin Hubble discovered the expanding universe, he ultimately created an expanding universe of his own – one of scientifically literate superheroes such as Spider-Man , The Hulk, Iron Man, & Black Panther.
Stan Lee RIP: 1922 – 2018
