What Stan Lee Did For Me – OHS082

Stan Lee, the comic book writer, editor, publisher, and man behind so much of Marvel Comics died on November 12, 2018 at the age of 95. I was vacationing on the Hawaiian island of Kauai with my mother when we heard the news. We were both stunned as we felt the weight of his passing. My mother and I are huge fans of superheroes, comic books, and Science Fiction. Over the past eleven years we have deeply enjoyed what the Marvel Cinematic Universe has offered to us in the form of all the great superhero movies to hit the big screen. Our family love and appreciation goes back further in time and deeper in our lives. My mother and father raised my two brothers and me on Science Fiction and superheroes. My earliest memories with my parents are going to see Star Wars on the big screen while watching Star Trek at home. At that time there were also several Made-For-TV superhero series including Spider-Man and our family favorite, The Hulk.

I am a fan of both DC and Marvel because so much of my life has been influenced by the culture of superheroes. I am not sure why my two immigrant parents loved superheroes and Science Fiction so much, but I am sure glad they did. It is a large part of who I am today. And in saying that, Stan Lee and his comic creations have made a huge difference in my life. This podcast is about how Stan and his crew make a difference in my life.
