As you have probably heard by now, the inevitable has happened. Stan Lee, Mr. Excelsior, the face of Marvel comics and movies, has passed away.
This news leaves me remarkably untouched. Lee’s health problems weren’t exactly secret and at the age of 95, the grim reaper is always lurking around the corner. The man had a great life and I salute him for his achievements.
Despite my negative attitude towards all things Marvel, I hold the company responsible for the lamentable state of cinema and American comics and refuse to read pick up any title anymore, the Spider-Man comics were a great influence on me and there was a time that I genuinely enjoyed reading them.
