Stan Lee - Excelsior!

Excelsior!

'Upward and onward to greater glory!’...

Much has been said about Stan Lee but I wanted to dwell on his sign-off because it captures him so well.

I was lucky to have a few meetings with Stan, most memorable was sitting in the green room with him at his own convention, Comikaze - we were announcing the partnership between his company POW! and Madefire. Stan had that enviable ability of making you feel he had all the time in the world just for you, we talked about MONO, especially his WWII escapades - an era Stan liked to dive into - he looked at the story and art, he was complimentary but I remember it as a quiet time, unhurried - he imbued me with a sense of anything is possible… to go for it.

Later he said he’d take a moment and he fell asleep in his chair, then he was back again, eyes sparkling - I hope I have captured that.

To me the striking part of our meeting was his ability to empower everyone around him and make them feel like anything is possible…he made everyone he touched feel they could fly upward and onward… what a selfless gift.

Thank you Stan
Ben
