I have not been into comic books (or video games) since I was at prep school around 1978. And the comic books I read up until then were World War II comics; very little of anything else. Often I have no clue what new characters who pop up here on DA are about. I pick up some of the zeitgeist here, and figure it out.
But Stan Lee is a name that stands out. I always knew about Spiderman. Of course there was a TV show featuring The Incredible Hulk (never watched it). But I knew Stan's work best in Sgt. Fury. Not Nick Fury of S.HE.I.L.D. (whatever that is), but Sgt. Fury And His Howling Commandos, the WWII incarnation of the character. I read that, and Sgt. Rock & G.I. Combat faithfully as a kid.
So Stan Lee was a part of my childhood, the icons of which have been dying left & right for a while now. I read a bit more about him today, and can see how pivotal a role he played in the development of the modern comic book.

Et lux perpetua luceat ei.
Requiescat in pace.
