Stan Leeย is a name that needs no introduction and his impact can’t be overstated.

From the web-slinging Spider-Man to the mighty Avengers, Stan Lee gave life to some of the most iconic characters in the history of comic books. With his boundless creativity, he broke down barriers and pushed boundaries, creating characters that were flawed and relatable, yet also heroic and aspirational. But it wasn’t just the characters themselves that made the Marvel Universe so special – it was the way they interacted with each other, forming a rich tapestry of interconnected stories that spanned decades. Stan Lee’s genius was in creating a world that was both fantastical and grounded, where the heroes grappled with real-world problems like discrimination, mental health, and loss. And the impact of Stan’s legacy can be felt far beyond the pages of comic books.
