Stan Lee gave us more than co-creations X-Men, Iron Man, Hulk, Fantastic Four & Spider-Man. He gave us creeds to live by. Principles to emulate. Villains (and racism) to fight. He gave me vital cornerstones of my belief system. My sense of responsibility.
He helped give me a sense of hope. Why? Because I could use all his lessons in real life. That’s why his stories were so powerful. It wasn’t the super powers (sometimes it was). But as I got older, Stan Lee...
gave me real world applications for all those values. And unlike politicians, corporations, advertising or anything else, those lessons were GOOD. For the sake of good. Read these now. They were written as way back as 1965. #RIPStanLee
Today, that’s what I struggle with most. That we’ve lost our sense of good. Sure, we know how to fight. But if you’re just trying to win, and fight for nothing but yourself, or for power,’ve already lost. He was so nice to me even in our small interactions.
Personally, I will forever use the lessons Stan Lee gave me: To fight for others. To use my creativity for good. And to know that with great power...comes this undeniable never-to-be-doubted incontrovertible fact: STAN LEE LIVES FOREVER. #Excelsior!
