For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship. We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SHIT!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love 🖤

For those non Geeks out here ! It’s so dope to see folks showing appreciation for our guy Stan Lee . But I think it’s important to explain to non geekery folks who & what he was . Clear up some big misconceptions. Mr Lee DID NOT OWN OR CREATE #MARVEL . He was an employee who brilliantly changed the face of the company by creating such iconic characters such as #SpiderMan , #Hulk , #the Xmen (not wolverine) #Fantastic4#IronMan#Thor#BlackPanther .
STAN LEE DID NOT DRAW THE CHARACTERS:
He teamed up with iconic artists like Jack Kirby (who should be mentioned in the same breath as Stan ) Steve Ditko and others to give you the iconic visuals we know today . What #StanLee did was create the stories we all know and love . The characters personalities. And he tackled racism & bigotry through stories . He created #TheBlackPanther to combat the white dominated hero landscape . And show the non black world that Africa produces greatness . The X Men were written in “code” to combat sexism , Homophobia & racism. Did you know that Professor X was based off of Martin Luther King and Magneto was based off of Malcolm X?? Spiderman represented the “ordinary “ guy . Not some rich dude that became a super hero. The Hulk tacked anger management and sometimes mismanagement! Haha
He wrote on a higher level. When Marvel asked him to “dumb it down” he turned it up!! . This in turn had kids reading about the cosmos , history , mythology,biology , chemistry all masked in superhero’s . Stan could not claim ownership of his characters . But what Marvel did was make him the face of the brand . Sorta like Uncle Ben , The Quaker Oat guy or Lady Eloise haha . Us GEEKS love Stan Lee like if he were our own grand dad or cool uncle ! If Marvel hero’s had Gods , Stan would be Zeus! So for a lot of geeks Stan’s passing is something truly felt thought our community! Stan’s key catch phrase was #EXCELSIOR !! Rest well ... you are immortal !

We’ve lost a creative genius. Stan Lee was a pioneering force in the superhero universe. I’m proud to have been a small part of his legacy and .... to have helped bring one of his characters to life. #StanLee#wolverine#Logan#Excelsior#MCU#STRS
