When I heard the news of Stan Lee's passing, I was extremely sad, it was a really sad moment as he was the man who created a lot of my childhood, without him I wouldn't be who I am today. The influence of Stan Lee and his spectacular universe that he created helped form my personality, morals, creativity, and sense of humour. Growing up, Spider-Man was my biggest hero, I owned like 8 figures of Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man. when I was 4, I would always watch the 90s Spider-Man animated series as well the 1960s cartoon, my grandparents later introduced me to Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films, those films taught me some very important values about life, like power and responsibility, as well as giving me the courage to never give up. When my life was going down a dark path, the MCU inspired me to keep moving forward. Marvel comics and films have helped me meet many friends in my life as well as helping me connect with family even more by showing them these movies. X-Men taught me it was okay to be different. Stan Lee meant everything to me as he helped create a rich, unique universe that inspired and helped many people through tough times, as well as promoting diversity and inclusion in rough political times, using titles like Black Panther and X-Men. Lee also made every one of these heroes special and relatable in their own ways, but most of all, he really cared about you, he would always post these soapboxes at the end of the comics and it would really feel like he's speaking to you personally, not to mention the way he would interact with his fans. I'm going to miss him so much, the world wouldn't be the same without him, may he rest in peace.
