You can’t read this article about the legendary Stan Lee (who died this Monday at the age of 95) and not be moved, and a little choked up, by the wonderful list of loving tribute Tweets. And not only does this post scroll through messages from the expected Marvel actors and their corner of the universe, but also from ‘rival’ DC Comics, actors from other properties like Star Wars and Star Trek, NASA, politicians, producers, directors, scientists, inventors, the US Army, space explorers, billionaires, and production studios.
If there is a big name in creative entertainment, that person has a nice story to share, or words of gratitude for the grand palette of imagination Lee painted onto our universe.
Everyone was a Stan Lee fan, and clearly, still is. Think about how different the landscape of entertainment would be without his boundless decades of genius. (And also, without his adorably amusing movie cameos.) We don’t think RunPee would have made it this far without Lee’s magical movie influence, inspiring the kind of films that help people see the value of friendship, love, and sacrifice.

This is where social media, and especially Twitter, comes into its own, as a force for loving and not for hate.
Excelsior, Mr. Lee! Thank you for being our Guardian of the Galaxy. RIP, somewhere in the universe.
