Never much into comic books, but he made life a little better place for a lot of kids. Rest Peacefully, Sir.

I remember every month getting together with the guys and walking up to the corner drug store and getting the latest edition of our favorites.

We would each get our favorite then go to one of the houses and read the one each person bought then switch. It was great way to spend an afternoon.

My favorites were Spider Man, Iron Man and Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos.

+1. Sgt. Fury was the best.

I remember when comic books sold for 20 cents, the same as a slice of pizza...

Received an original Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD #1 as a retirement gift. By far my favorite of Stan’s characters. As others have said here, heading up to the comics store over 30 years ago (still standing and operating today) and picking up favorites were some awesome childhood memories.

Like others his stories and characters provided hours and hours of entertainment and education for me as a kid. My oldest is now able to go through my collection and carefully remove the plastic, tape, then replace without incident. Heck, I still enjoy a digital comic on Comixology every now and then. I hope Disney/Marvel does some wiz bang CGI to keep his cameos going.

A list of Stan Lee's creations or co-creations on Comic Vine shows 343 characters that include Spider-man, X-men, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Hawkeye, Blank Panther, Nick Fury, Inhumans, Scarlet Witch, Daredevil, Fantastic Four.

Godspeed Stan Lee.

His wife died a year ago and at his age that often takes a large toll. I was fearing this was happening rather soon when it became clear that a lot of more contemporary creators were visiting him at home.

He was quite a visionary, while a lot of the genius was so basic. Seeing him in all the future cameos they have in the can will be bitter sweet, but they had planned to extend his physical legacy as long as practical.

Excelsior!

RIP Stan Lee
