Today we’ve lost Stan “The Man” Lee. While we’re all processing this grief we wanted to share what some of his friends, family, and co-workers are sharing about the man whose creations have touched so many of us over the years.
From the publishing house and studio he helped out on the map:
— Marvel Entertainment (@Marvel) November 12, 2018
“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!”
— Marvel Studios (@MarvelStudios) November 12, 2018
“Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created. A super hero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect." – Bob Igerhttps://t.co/x88rzoNDgx pic.twitter.com/yNORZrbQTB
— Walt Disney Studios (@DisneyStudios) November 12, 2018
To the Comic Creators out there:
I guess I'm supposed to be sad that Stan Lee has died, and I am, but I'm mostly smiling, thinking about what a kickass 95 years that was.
Rest in Peace, Mister Lee, you earned it.
— Jonathan Hickman (@JHickman) November 12, 2018
As I'm sitting here trying to put words in the mouths of the characters he made immortal, characters that have literally changed my life, all I can really come up with is: Thank you, Stan.

Stan would always say, after a panel, that if I needed any work or contacts, come talk to him. I always appreciated that.

im really genuinely crying about stan lee fuck

There's so much more I'd like to say. So many memories I'd like to share. My heart won't stop pounding and my eyes keep watering up. And I have to wrap up a Fantastic Four plot today. I can't think of a better way to honor him in this moment then keeping the characters alive. pic.twitter.com/oEIcyc4ajy

Stan Lee helped create the entire Marvel universe, and I thank him for that. But I mostly thank him for instilling in me the hope for heroes in the everyday world, for people who do the right thing, and who understand that responsibility comes with any power. Rest in peace, Stan. pic.twitter.com/KzhF8RYFS1

RIP Stan Lee. Thanks for all the amazing characters and stories you produced, with an astounding group of talented co-creators. Excelsior, sir.

Stan Lee left this universe today. At 95 in our Earth years.
This painting is based on a photo of Stan & I. He has his arm around me in the photo and we had just been discussing writing Daredevil. It's a sentimental moment for me.

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.
— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) November 12, 2018
RIP Stan Lee. "End of an era" is one of the phrases that is over-used, but clearly the one to use here.

This copy of Magneto signed by Stan Lee is one of my most prized possessions. It sits next to my desk and is a constant source of motivation. RIP Stan. pic.twitter.com/VwaiTVmb3s

Awful news. Had the chance to meet him once but I chickened out. Will always regret that. RIP Stan.https://t.co/kCdln951J6

Even giants die. Their last gift is that we all get to keep right on standing on their shoulders.
One helluva mythsmith. Ad astra, Stan. x #RIPStanLee

Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of @TheRealStanLee. Like so many other kids from the 60s and 70s, his work along with the amazing writers and artists of Marvel shaped my creative world. And taught me valuable lessons like the one posted by @KarleeKanz. https://t.co/tFitTev4Jl

To actors who have helped bring his creations and others from Marvel to life:
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!!

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
