Just shifting this over here so we're not derailing the other thread where this is being discussed...

Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee passed away (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/stan-lee-dead-marvel-comics-real-life-superhero-was-95-721450) yesterday.

It makes me sad that he didn't get to see Avengers 4 and the end of this iteration of the film universe, but there is one anecdote that popped up on Twitter (https://twitter.com/TomBrevoort/status/1062169801324408834) last night that I found kind of heartwarming:

The last thing Stan Lee wrote for Marvel he did for me, for the Marvel 75th Anniversary Specialóa retelling of the very first text story he wrote for Timely, this time as a comic story illustrated by Bruce Timm. So Stanís first Marvel story was also his last Marvel story.

I was really sad when I heard about his death. While I never read the comic books, I still feel like he had a huge impact on me. I've seen every MCU movie and most of the tv shows and loved his stories. RIP Stan Lee and my heart goes out to your family.
