Stan Lee was a visionary and a pioneer. I owe a lot to him for personally shaping my childhood fantasy worlds, my appreciation for art on all levels, & for teaching me humanness and humility through his wonderfully insightful stories. He will be missed. Long Live FOOM ! pic.twitter.com/coMUHWXGKVNovember 12, 2018

Sad to hear about the passing of Stan Lee. Not only was he instrumental in creating some of the most iconic & influential characters in the American literary canon, he seemed to be a genuinely kind, decent & caring person & that above all else is the greatest “super power.” RIP https://t.co/ZnpgvORLRMNovember 12, 2018
