Stan Lee laid to rest at private funeral

Chadwick Boseman in the

As Mashable's Adam Rosenberg wrote following the comic legend's November 12 death: "Lee, and through him Marvel, recognized that superheroes were still fundamentally human, capable of all the same flaws and fears as anyone else".

A small, private funeral has been held to mourn Marvel Comics mogul Stan Lee, and his company is making more plans to memorialize him.

Lee revolutionized the comic world by creating Marvel Comics superheroes such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four and The Incredible Hulk.

Fans around the world have already shared a tribute to art in honour of this legendary man, and even Hollywood celebrities such as Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., expressed his condolences.

He co-created the Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, and numerous other heroes in the Marvel comic and cinematic universes.

"Now, I have nothing against comic books - I read them now and then when I was a kid and I was all out of Hardy Boys", he continued. Some wrote they otherwise agree with his political position (you know, the racist, ableist, and Islamophobic ones that he's known for) but did not agree with his criticism of comic book culture. "Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with him", they said in a statement.


Bill Maher riled up comic book fans on Saturday when the comedian wrote a blog post critical of Stan Lee's cultural impact.

Bill Maher then went on to say that the increased presence of comics in popular culture and their acceptance as an art form for adults has led to a dumbing-down of society.

'Bill Maher is so up his own a** he blames Stan Lee for creating stories about rejecting bigotry instead of himself for inviting white nationalists on his show'.

"I'm not saying we've necessarily gotten stupider", Maher wrote, before adding, "The problem is, we're using our smarts on stupid stuff".

'Additionally, over the next several days we will be sharing messages from fellow creators, artists and colleagues of Stan's across his Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Such titles as Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Spider-Man 3, Doctor Strange, Daredevil and Jessica Jones are included in the Netflix catalog.
