Stan Lee: Tributes Pour In For The Marvel Comics Legend

Wednesday, 14 Nov, 2018

Tributes have been pouring in saluting Lee's comic creations and personal warmth, but according to Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, it's basically impossible to judge Lee's legacy at this point, given the continuous nature of the Marvel Universe he brought into being. As the creator of Spider-Man, The Hulk, Black Panther and more, he gave us superheroes as we know them today and, perhaps more importantly these days, he gave us the modern superhero movie. "And there was about 300 photographers and interviewers just all on Stan". The characters he co-created with the likes of Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko are now multi-million-dollar franchises stewarded by the House of Mouse, to be spun off, remade, repackaged, and resold into eternity.

Lee denied the accusations at the time.

His characters have since left the comic book pages and have grown into multi-billion dollar Hollywood franchises.
