63 Artists’ Tributes To Late Comic Book Legend Stan Lee
Yesterday, on the 12th of November, one of the most famous American superhero comic book writers and publishers, Stan Lee, passed away. Alongside other legends - Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko - he created such iconic heroes as Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, Black Panther, and many more Marvel characters, leaving behind a legacy that will be remembered by generations to come.
We feel that there's no need to list all of Stan Lee's accomplishments further, but in memoriam, we'd like to share a couple of random facts about the Marvel universe creator. Before being known as Stan Lee, Stanley Martin Lieber wrote obituaries for celebrities and created training films for the army together with Dr.Seuss. And of course, you know the fact that Stan Lee always has a cameo in every Marvel superhero movie, but that is actually a part of his contract with the enterprises. Also, up until his death, Stan Lee received a hefty 1 million dollars each year just for being himself. That's what you get for being a legend!
Fans all over the world are already sharing tribute art in honor of this legendary man, and even Hollywood celebrities like Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. expressed their condolences. The Marvel comics Stan Lee created were a massive part of many peoples' childhoods, and even though he passed away, a warm memory of him and his kindness will forever stay with us.

Oof. The feels. Fucking onion ninjas. They’re everywhere!!!
Valhalla! Of course, myth has it that Odin took a famous poet (Snorri Sturluson, I think) to Valhalla to entertain the Thanes, so of course a person so impactful on Today's culture society would beling there!!
They should make a movie on him and this should be the cover.
I love that he's waving goodbye! This is making me emotional!
I think it would be awesome and a fitting tribute if Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Josh Brolin, and pick any Spider-Man (lol) were pall bearers at his funeral.
The wit, the muscles, the genius and the gorgeous redhead. That pretty much seems like heaven to me.

A new character taken from DC's Mister Miracle mini series in 2018 that it's obviously inspired by Stan The Man Lee... it even uses his catchphrase
