Hello! What a nice comic! I hope everyone is having an excellent day. Please be sure to share it with us at /r/WholesomeComics if it's not already there! We'd love to see you there.
I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically. Please contact the moderators of this subreddit if you have any questions or concerns.
This both breaks and warms my heart at the same time and I don’t know how to feel about it
Agreed, of all the "RIP Stan Lee" posts I've seen on Reddit today, this is by far my favorite. Excelsior!
Right? This is the first one I connected with Awww :(
It hurts to read. He had a long and great life, but so many of us will miss him. I'll especially miss the fun cameos.
That both makes me happy and sad at the same time. I hope his family is okay. This is a little off topic, but I remember losing my grandfather and how hard it was. I can't imagine the difficulty of fame and all the news coverage on top of it.
They did. James Gunn said that he directed a lot of them
They did record a bunch iirc. I think I saw a post on Reddit about that a while ago
I find comfort knowing that at that age, he probably was ready for the end, and I can’t see Stan Lee having many regrets. I like to think he’s in a better place now.
Still hurts though, it’s still kinda surreal to think that he’s gone though
I’m sure they will CG him in for more wacky cameos!
I honestly know very little of him (or any celebrity - I grew up with no TV) but I did learn of him, and greatly enjoyed seeing his cameos - cause it kinda made me feel like a normal person, since I often just simply don’t recognize or know the people doing cameos, at all
So yeah, his are meaningful to me :) I’ll miss him...
It's funny because I don't think any other franchise would have been able to pull that off. I always loved his cameos even if they were super cheesy.
I await the DC tribute. You just know it's gonna be something special.
They posted something already, a collection of his Stan Lee Imagines stuff.
I'm thinking something more inline like this.
Although when Jim passed, Disney owned the Muppets.
Nothing sad about Stan's death. He was 95. 70 or so of those spent loving the same woman. He was able to co-create some amazing things, and people loved him for that. It's not a time for sadness. It's a time for reflection.
Since my dad died death doesnt bother me anymore.
He was 95 and did and made amazing things, met and influenced an amazing amount of people. He created role models.
Stan isnt upset. Nor is he longing. He is at peace. And he will live on through the characters he created and lives hes influenced.
According to Roy Thomas, who met with him last week, Stan was ready to go. He's an old, blind man who misses his wife, who was jerked around like a prop for the last year or so. I'm fortunate to have been able to interact with him on multiple occasions -- even worked with him, kind of. But save the sadness for people who actually really knew him. Who are truly going to be left without a friend they had. A father. The rest of us, we can be happy knowing we got to know him a little, in our way, that he got to make the world a more interesting place, and that he's no longer in pain.
Exactly. Hes more fine now than any of us here on earth.
Hes at peace. and that is something not to be sad about. But to respectfully acknowledge and carry on.
I hope he just got a job offer..
Will you still be hoping that when a purple chin monster is born as a miracle from God?
just know that when he left, he returned to the home of the gods and left us stories to make us feel happy again
I’d like to imagine that Lee, Tolkien, Gygax and Arneson are all getting a pint of the afterlife’s best ale together.
I want to watch them play DnD together.
Was about to say Tolkien is required to DM but then there's the two men themselves...
Theres an ideal game-creating team now...
My ideal lineup:
Lore: Tolkien/Stan Lee
Game Design: Gygax/Arneson
Game Architect: Iwata
Game Tester: John Bain
"Wheres my FOV slider?"
"Its a board game John"
"I thought this was heaven! Next you're going to tell me the fps is capped at 30"
I loved his Secret Hitler videos. I can imagine him bantering with everyone around a table.
Tolkien: "What the fuck is a 'video game'?"
Made me lol, thank you friend for the laugh!
Totalbiscuit proceeds to spend the first 300 years complaining that there aren't enough options sliders
(I love him but 'skip to the gameplay' was one of his best features...)
Dude did you have to hit me with the Iwata feels again.
I love this.
Today has been really tough for me, I just went and saw Venom literally yesterday and saw probably one of his last cameos in it.
Thank you for making my night a little bit brighter.
The team at Marvel Studios said they filmed a lot of his cameos ahead, so he'll be in many more movies to come :)
He's apparently pre-recorded a handful of Cameos. So he's for sure in both Captain Marvel and Avengers: 4, but also possibly the movies releasing in 2020 if we're lucky. Would be awesome to see him in Eternals.
Resident Rules Lawyer: Stephen Hawking
Music if it were a movie?
oh my. dnd online had gygax as a guest narrator. i didnt know i wanted stan lee to narrate my dnd adventures until now. wow.
We can throw Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams on there too
Don’t forget Jim Henson too!
What about Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko?!
It's kind of eating me up that there is no mention of Kirby and Ditko in most of these tributes to Lee's creativity. Let's be real, without great collaborators there aren't any Stan Lee original characters worth mentioning.
Still. Rest in Peace, stan.
And Mr. Fred Rogers for good measure.
Isaac Asimov aswell
I know the first three, but who’s Arneson?
Dave Arneson is the co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons along with Gygax.
Arneson had an enormous impact on the evolution of the RPG genre. "Lots of stuff in the modern gaming landscape can be traced back to what he invented as a game-master starting in '71, years before D&D's release," Tavis says. "Not just specific tropes like clerics who can turn undead, but the whole concept of having an alternate personality in an imagined world whose capability is measured with numbers that get better with experience. When my son trains his Pokemon, or my aunt sends me a request in Farmville, that's all part of Arneson's legacy."
He's the reason for so much of what we associate with RPGs.
Wow, I had no idea how much influence he had. What an incredible man
And Kirby is screaming at Lee to go fuck himself.
By all accounts they were getting along reasonably well before Kirby's death. The two had done some fence mending at various comic book conventions and, while they weren't best pals or anything like that, they could sit together behind the scenes and talk about the early days at Timely/Marvel or current industry events. They weren't going to be hanging out socially in their spare time, but the hostility that marked their relationship through the 80s seemed to have died down.
Doesn't really change all the money Lee made instead of him.
I’d hope that Stan would be wanting to catch up with Joanie and Jack first....
Tolkien probably wouldn’t like Stan Lee.
I can't imagine he'd actively dislike him, but yeah, Tolkien was a professor at Oxford, I don't expect he'd have much in common with Stan.
Add Greg Stafford in there too while you're at it! Hell, throw in every influential author/designer who's left us behind, they deserve it!
Oh look, I got the references. I love you awesome nerds.
I'd probably throw Asimov in that mix too.
And Stan can read comic books again.
This right here just make's me so happy with tears
It’s easy to say that Stan Lee will love on FOREVER through the franchise that he built up. He was amazingly creative and talented and I’m glad that we have all that he created to look back on even without him here with us anymore!!
Out of all the things I've seen and read about today, this little drawing is what put a tear in my eye. Damn...
At least you can be proud that he was alive in your life time. Those franchises and characters will keep on growing so at some point in the future you might tell your grandchildren about him, heck some of us even met him personally and interacted with him in events!
My only hope is that he got to see Avengers 4
I'd like to imagine he showed this to his wife and she was like "who's Stan Lee?" So he wrote 'Marvel' on the suitcase and she was like "ohhh, I get it now"
Go one step further. It started with “Who’s that, sweetheart?”
Draw the big button.
That's such a common thing in political cartoons, dating back literal centuries.
It's so dumb though. People who don't know Stan Lee won't like the cartoon even with the labels, and for people who do it's just too on-the-nose and detracts from the message.
In political cartoons I can understand that you want every drooling knobhead to be able to internalize your point, but this is aimed at fans and people with emotional investment.
Eh. This would’ve been taken from the local newspaper.
if he’s a comic , and she doesn’t know who Stan Lee is . boy did he pick the wrong one
I mean, a lot of people have no interest in their spouse's jobs or even hobbies.
I'm sure they have something in common, but just because I work in software it doesn't mean I'd expect my theoretical wife to know Linus Torvalds or Dennis Ritchie, just as much as she wouldn't expect me to know really famous members of her field.
Provided they have enough in common otherwise, there shouldn't be an issue.
My wife would totally know who Karl Franz is though. He is Prince and Emperor.
hey your wife is like my love life!
I think you mean “MARYEL”
Cool, that’s a Marshal Ramsey cartoon! He’s a political cartoonist and commentator here in Mississippi. 😊
He is a Mississippi treasure!
He’s my neighbor!
I job shadowed him as a kid, this post threw me off when I saw it.
He came and did a guest lecture at my school a few weeks ago, really enjoyed him
Rest In Peace Stan. You touched us all
This is amazing.
God: You've got this hero thing down, haven't you?
Lee: You could say that
God: I've still created the best hero there ever was...... you
This comment here making cry :(
Source for anyone interested.
Stan Lee has been one of my biggest heroes since before I can even remember. Enjoy eternity Mr. Lee. You meant so much to so many. And will continue for generations to come.
Thanks for doing what OP should have done to begin with, posting the source.
That indeed is true. And he's also not half bad at destroying half of the universe.
You sumbitches really out here trying to make me cry today huh.
not only are they trying, they are succeeding, you damn sumbitches
The Chinese fantasy comic/novel world just lost its Stan Lee last month (Jin Yong/Louis Cha) too. The loss of Stan Lee and Louis is really taking a toll on my heart...
It’s so sad watching him leave behind this universe of creations.
His legacy will live on for eternity in those creations. He’s immortal now.
He got to see his craft leap from being something only cringey nerds cared about to a billion dollar global entertainment juggernaut, adored by kids and adults alike.
He saw the ensemble movie that brought them all together beat Star Wars and become a worldwide phenomenon, and he never saw the inevitable replacements for Hugh Jackman, Robert Downey Jnr, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans.
We should all be so lucky to die a king.
Beautiful as well :)
You rather him take them with him?
Do you ever think about how he was once a kid? Just a kid who day dreamed about heroes. He followed his dream his entire life, ending it with thunderous applause.
His OC will be missed. Seriously impacted the world as much as a Steve Jobs or the like. One of a kind
I’m not a religious man, but the idea of something/someone calling a 95 y/o “kid” is pretty comforting for some reason.
He created them with a bunch of help from Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby.
It’s kind of messed up people were just sitting on all of these Stan Lee death comics
it was bound to happen. I'm just glad they're positive.
actually I'm not sure they were sitting on them, remember the one about the school shooting where one of the coaches blocked shots with his body?
there was a cartoon like this one, with the same level of detail, on reddit not more than 3 hours later
Some people just work very quick.
It wouldn't take long at all for a skilled person to draw this.
I hope they work together to design their own perfect universe separate from ours
I am not a fan of Marvel, but still I must marvel (sorry that was awful) at how this man created so many superheroes that people love. Thank you Mr. Lee. One day I am gonna write a book and create a universe like you did.
God and Stan Lee begin collaborating and humans with superpowers begin to appear.
Ah! So THEY we're responsible for the super babies that kicked off the plot of BNHA!
That's why he had to go...they needed him upstairs
Didnt wanna cry today yet here we are

In the Marvel Universe, God is Jack Kirby. As it should be.
You know a thought I have had recently about this is what if god is just like our authors. When someone makes a story they will unintentionally put parts about their life into it and they know everything and all things about that story, like they are all knowing. What if god is a author and is just making the greatest story ever told. If he made us in his image then maybe he unintentionally put part of his life in our story. Maybe our good and bad sides are just how god sees himself. Also I wonder who takes centre stage in humanity’s story. Have they even been born yet or is our greatest part still yet to come?
“So... I created man in my image....tell me about these super heroes.”
Wow. This got me.
This is the best tribute I’ve seen today IMO
So, I’m not a huge comic book reader at all. My grandmother on the other hand loves them. I have no idea if she actually read the comics or not but any time a super hero movie comes out she’d always want to go see it. When I was a kid this was a part of my life. I knew if a superhero movie came out (and it was age appropriate) we would go see it together. It was always a funny event. She would always check out the men and tell me how hunky they were and I would burst into giggles. Stuff like that. Now I joke we’re related to Thor. Her great something (mine too I guess) grandpa was named Torgrim, another spelling for Thorgrim, long version of Thor. When we think Thor we’re not always thinking of the myths and legends but the comics too. It’s another giggle.
When I got older I finally met my other “family” I never knew my father or his family growing up so this was a big thing. My uncle apparently LOVES comics and is an amazing artist. I think he even worked for a comic book company (but I have to fact check). It was something we could bond over even though I only knew a few. When I found out my little cousin loved comics I became so excited and told him every comic book store in my city. We planned a whole trip for him to come (before telling his mom, my aunt) so we could go shopping for comics together. It really helped me get to know him.
Comics have really helped me bond with my family and have been there for me when I needed a little extra love. I might not be the biggest fan or marvel nerd but I respect and love Stan Lee above and beyond. I even took a history of comics in college as part of my major. When I found out Stan Lee passed I was at work and upset. But this comic is the first time I cried.
When I heard the news, I wanted to cry. But I was at work, so I pushed it down and tried not to think about my emotions. I went home, didn't use my computer for a while. I finally did, and looked at all these Reddit/Instagram/Twitter posts, I googled about him etc.
Seeing how many lives he touched, reading all the things he accomplished, and how kind he was... I just sorta lost it. I was bawling my eyes out.
I'm going to get Excelsior tattooed somewhere. Maybe my wrist, idk. Marvel had such a big impact on me
Surprised by all the love this guys been getting considering the strong evidence that he was the Thomas Edison of comics...
Okay. Ouch, that hurt me a bit. :(
I really like this one. Gives me a smile to think about to replace some of the sad. He was such an amazing guy.
:( R.I.P Stan Lee is probably one of my biggest idols, when I felt down I would watch stuff like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and Captain america, (though The First two series of spider man were not made by marvel) I still enjoyed them non the less. I guess what he created really made me forget about everything. He created characters that changed people, and the comics had an even greater effect.
There ain’t room in this here heaven for two gods!
everyone misses you already Stan
I wasn’t ready 💔💔💔💔
May you be in heaven half an hour before Mephisto knows you're dead.
Not sure if that's Stan Lee talking to God, or God talking to Stan Lee, but both work in my head.
We wont get anymore Stan Lee cameo 😭
There are probably some already filmed, even if not it would not surprise me at all if they did CGI cameos for him. I imagine he would even approve it.
I grew up in Mississippi just thinking every cartoonist was as good as Marshall Ramsey, but I was mistaken. He’s one of the best all around artists and creators with some solid books he’s authored.
This cartoon is but one in a catalog that goes back decades of amazing work from a really awesome person.
Stan Lee, one of the legends, getting drawn by a local legend from my neck of the woods is pretty awesome when others outside of the state can enjoy it as well.
RIP, PRESS F TO PAY RESPECTS, OOF
I would like to see a tribute in a movie where his past cameos (people dressed up as the other cameos) are at his funeral. Like there is someone speaking at the funeral and the chairs are filled with those characters.
Damn... over 70k upvotes on this post that each represent a life impacted by Stan the Man...
That’s pretty damn amazing...
Bravo 👏 Class post.
I love that God called him "kid".
Stan Lee died?!? When????
Which party is speaking in this image?
I was fine--sad, but holding it together...until this one.
Hey, I know that cartoonist! Marshall Ramsay is such a great artist and a wholesome person in general. Greetings from Mississippi, OP!
