    Don't forget to mention his military service and philanthropic foundation... – Valorum Nov 12 '18 at 19:27

    I mean, he can't really be dead. Someone must've kept a DNA sample to make a clone, or he faked his own death to escape his enemies, or a mystic sorcerer will use forbidden magic, or a cosmic life force will come down from the sky and resurrect him. I say we wait a good 100 issues before stating he's dead. ...Ah, who am I kidding. RIP. :'( – Jenayah Nov 12 '18 at 20:01

    Do you think they'll give him the Cushing treatment and and make him do CGI cameos for eternity? – DCOPTimDowd Nov 13 '18 at 18:45

    Technically dead? Sure. A perfect example of staying alive because you have embedded yourself in the mind of pretty much everyone? Absolutely. – Misha R Nov 26 '18 at 19:48

Excelsior.

Earth has lost one of its mightiest heroes today. I know just about all of us in the SFF community will be saddened by this loss.

If you are ever feeling generous I recommend The Stan Lee Foundation because being able to read is superpower that everyone should experience and share with the world.

I mean, I can't say this is totally unexpected - he was 95.

But I think the last time the death of someone I've never met hit me this hard was when Jim Henson died, back in the early 1990s.

Goodbye, and thanks for all the incredible stories, and the sense of camaraderie you created between fans and creators with the old "Bullpen Bulletins" page, and "Stan's Soapbox". You'll be missed.

He was the man who was supposed to live forever. Out of nowhere too. I’m so sad, it seemed like he never would die, and then he just did...
My respects to Stan Lee, the greatest guy in the world.
