Stan "The Man" Lee turned 90 on December 28th and what was his birthday present from Marvel? The death of Peter Parker no less. Stan has been a big influence on many for his time and hand in helping to create some of Marvel Comic's best known characters as well as establishing the Marvel Method of creating comic books. Since essentially retiring from Marvel, Stan has still been a figurehead and spokesperson of sort. He gets the honor of having a cameo in most of the Marvel films and is a big draw at comic book conventions around the world. Stan Lee was a big influence on me as a Marvel Zombie growing up and I loved reading his editorials and seeing "excelsior!" at the end of each one. Here's to wishing Stan much health and continued inspiration as he continues to try to create and bring smiles to fans the world over.
