I've been trying to find real, legitimate reports on this, I promise...
It looks like, at the age of 95, Stan Lee has passed away.
I don't even know what to say about this besides that he was the Father of Comic Books. A LOT of people adored him for a very good reason: he was able to create characters and stories that resonated with a lot of people. X-Men and Spiderman were my only friends when I first started at a school in fourth grade. I am grateful for that companionship that Marvel provided.
