    Even though he simply created fictional characters and comics, those fictional things made the world a better place! I know there are tens of millions like me who gained untold joy, entertainment, and imagination because of what Stan created. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I hope your family can take comfort in the knowledge of the joy you brought to the world in your life.

    An Immortal Passes On
    by Michael H. Hanson ©2018

    It is always the saddest day
    when an immortal thus departs,
    one in Jack’s and Will’s Halls of Fame
    bearing his land's Medal of Arts.

    You strode comics like a giant
    abreast of Ditko and Kirby,
    Comics Code found you defiant
    with Hulk, Doctor Strange, and Spidey.

    Fantastic Four’s real grandfather,
    the super steel in Iron Man,
    thrilling editor and author,
    truest mutant in The X-men.

    You showed blind Daredevil could see,
    that Black Panther was strong and brave
    and Ant-Man’s tough tenacity
    proved that the small were more than knave.

    You rise beyond this mortal realm,
    the Watcher knows your noble brow,
    Galactus grieves atop his helm,
    the Silver Surfer gives a bow.

    RIP Stan Lee (1922 – 2018)
