It’s one of the things I guess I’ve always enjoyed about the character. It’s like dad jokes in comic books!
I really dislike the modern characterisation of Spider-Man as a goofball loser. He's supposed to be confident and outgoing and witty because he's all the things that Peter Parker wishes he could be when in his own clothes but only feels able to be when in disguise. Being a dumbo whose jokes fall flat isn't anyone's wish-fulfillment.
Yup, I laughed REALLY loud.

This is a moment where everyone will feel sad for the loss. But I think to a great idea by George Patton where he says we can mourn the person and feel bad for ourselves or we can thank God that the person lived and added so much to our lives.
Mr.Lee lived 95 years and saw his creations come to dominate pop culture. He added so much to the lives of many. I salute him and am thankful for him.
He has finally joined Jack Kirby in the cosmos. RIP
Both Steve Ditko and Stan Lee in the same year. Rough year for comicbooks.

Stan Lee was a good man, and he had a good life. The entire comic community will miss him.
R.I.P Stan Lee.
Literally just saw a post on Twitter calling him a white supremacist. I wonder if people just throw these terms around randomly and never actually pay attention to what a person says or the values they hold.
This is my first time seeing this and damn, do I really love it. It's not the first time I've heard something like this said, but just the way it seems to cover all the bases of addressing the issues and then offering up what needs to be done to oppose it. It's always awesome to read stuff like this.
Honestly, this just made me all the more sad that Lee lived long enough to witness a sort of re-emergence of fascism and neo-Nazism in our current socio-political atmosphere.
Stan Lee, born Lieber, lived through and contributed to the efforts in WW2 only to read headlines like "11 Killed in Synagogue Massacre" nearly 80 years later. I don't know how aware he was during his last few years, but I can imagine how heartbroken someone who preached love and equality and tolerance as much as he did must have been.
This is why the whole Casualgate movement is funny to me. They whine and moan about SJWs and minorities not belonging in comics among a wide variety of toxic rhetoric but if they had been reading for as long as they've implied they'd know that for decades comics have been about combating issues like racism, sexism, and bigotry of all forms. Stan put that very well decades ago.
I think it’s truly sobering how this advice still holds up word for word all these years later. I like to think that maybe the resurgence of interest in superheroes will lead to kinder and more tolerant generations to come. I think Stan would have wanted that.
Of all the Reddit tributes, posting his words and values honor him best. Thank you, OP.
Stan Lee was ahead of his time with his liberal progressive inclusionary ideas. Just say NO to the alt right!
Not gonna lie, I teared up reading this. It breaks my heart that there's an ongoing movement in comics that goes against everything Stan Lee believed in.
I kind of wonder... did Stan get any threats in the mail or racist parents saying "bla bla bla im not letting my kid read your brainwashing tripe ! bla bla bla" ?
Anyone know of a published collection or online archive of Stan’s Soapbox?
Every kid who ever read a Marvel comic grew up to be a slightly better person because of it. It’s funny because Stan seemed to stumble into comics, he wanted to be a novelist. But characters like Peter Parker are some of the most complex and interesting in American literature.
Whatever I end up doing I’ll never have the sort of beneficial impact on the species as that guy did. Who could? He stands alone. Whatever good I have in me can be attributed in large part to that man. That’s the truth.
Wait Stan Lee is fucking DEAD ? WTF ?
I came here for this post.
R.I.P Mr Lee. Gone but will never be forgotten!
Comic book db usually has the artist signature on the page but this is a tough one. The k looks like the one on the original cover though. I'm no signature expert though.
I usually do a Google image search and compare. Did that for this, but no Manak signatures seemed to show up. My second option is to check eBay, but nothing there either. The last option would be to simply message him on Twitter.
Why does Carnage have a tongue
