On Nov. 12, 2018, the world lost one of the most beloved comic book writers of all time, Stan Lee, who died at the age of 95.

Lee, who has been Marvel Comics’ creative leader, gave birth to iconic heroes such as the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Captain America and Spider-Man.

According to articles by “The New York Times,” Lee was rushed to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Hospital in Los Angeles, Calif. where he passed away. Before that, Lee was battling pneumonia and had taken a break from conference appearances to focus on his health.

Former Marvel editor-in-chief Roy Thomas told the Hollywood Reporter when spending one last Saturday with Lee that he looked ready to go, but was up to do more cameos in Marvel films with his most recent appearance being in “Venom,” and is reported by Joe and Anthony Russo that Lee filmed his cameo already for “Avengers 4,” marking his final cameo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Lee’s passing came as a huge blow as actors Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. have already shared their condolences, but many students at TAMU-CC have also shared fond memories of Lee’s work.

James Jones, Communications major, was one of the fans of Lee’s work and feels his legacy should move forward.

“His work was incredible,” said Jones. “He leaves a lot left to the people at Marvel to pick up such a big weight he’s carried for such a long time. … His work was inspiring because it would bring people together to see a fantastic story.”

The news of Lee’s passing came as a shock to Javier Navarez, English major, who has been a fan of his work.

“I was shocked by it,” said Navarez. “I didn’t expect to see it on Facebook. It just came out of left field.”

Getting enjoyment in seeing his work and appearances in each Marvel film, Navarez admired most about Lee’s work was that his heroes were similar to us.

“What made his work so incredible was that these characters could relate to us as real human beings,” Navarez said.

One of Navarez’s favorite heroes that Lee created was Captain America, who relates back to Navarez for fighting to do the right thing.

“I can relate to him where he wants to take action in doing the right thing,” said Navarez, “and make sure justice is done.”

Many people around the world have been touched by Lee’s work in some way, and he has left a legacy behind that will not be forgotten.
