November, 2018, experienced an end to the creator of many superheroes. The innovator of Marvel comics, Stan Lee, died at the age of 95. Leaving thousands of fans mourning the loss and bringing the comic age of innovation to an end. Famous characters he gave to the comic world are Spiderman, hulk, Thor, Iron Man and countless others. Though, he presented to the world some enthralling characters but he never ceased to innovate. His cameo appearances in many Marvel series were appreciated by fans.
The idea of superpower, he inhibited in that characters is the idea to challenge your ability, to do something against the evil in this world. His characters portrayed normal person with ability to challenge the malevolent. People feel connected to the character, in an identical superhero; the one with the same problems and flaws, others are experiencing.
Hollywood has greatly been affected by the characters of Lee. Stan’s characters gave Hollywood some highest grossing films, and in return earned him a star on the Hollywood walk of fame.
Stan, had the power to connect, inspire, and more importantly to entertain. He had some rough years before his death. But, he definitely was a real-life superhero, as Lee always advocated equality, diversity and entertainment.
Remembering his words “For years, kids have been asking me what’s the greatest superpower. I always say luck. If you’re lucky, everything works. I’ve been lucky.”
Propergaanda expresses sincere sympathy to his family and fans.
