There are very few people who are cultural icons that redefined pop culture.
Stan Lee was one who helped inspire imagination and joy for decades.
Stan didn’t do it alone he had, Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Steve Ditko, Bill Everett, were MVP’s creating the pop culture golden age we live in now!
He may be gone but his legend will live on forever!
Rest In Peace Stan Lee, we all will miss you.
