With the passing of Stan Lee, the entire hero community morns. It’s a shame to see him go but he lived a good life full of inspiring decisions. Excélsior!

Stan Lee was born Jewish and I’m given to believe that in the Jewish community, instead of saying, “Rest In Peace”, they say, “May Their Memory be a Blessing” to honour the dead.
What a perfect phrase to commemorate the life of this incredible man. His memory comes in the form of the legion of heroes he created that truly are a blessing to those that know them (and let’s face it, who doesn’t know his character nowadays?).
Though he created many iconic, legendary characters, I included Spider-Man in the picture because he is not only my favourite superhero, but also the hero that taught me the most.
He taught me that a nerd (with a passion for photography) can become everything he wanted to be. Not by getting superpowers, but by believing in his own ability and self-worth and being a good person no matter what may happen to you. The reason Spider-Man resonated with me so much wasn’t because of his powers (though I’d be lying if I said it wouldn’t be cool to have them) it was because of the relatable, layered character under the mask. It’s his ability to write a relatable but admirable character beyond the hero that made Stan Lee such an amazing and inspiring writer.
Fantastic, Incredible, Amazing, Mighty and Spectacular but sadly not Invincible. But that’s okay, because he lived a full, happy, fulfilled life and died peacefully, surrounded by loved ones and remembered fondly by millions.
His legacy will live on long after we’re gone, in the hearts, souls, minds (whatever you choose to call it) of those that his amazing characters and stories have touched.
May Your Memory be a Blessing, Stan “The Man” Lee.
