Stan will pass onto Valhalla in 2019, about a month after the final Avengers movie (for this generation). With the loss of his wife this year I don't see him going much farther than that. Infinity War 2 will be the culmination of his life's work.

How cool would it have been if Deadpool had said, "Hi Stan!"

And then if Stan had answered, "Oh hi, Ryan!"

And then Deadpool went, "Wait, what?"

No, HE COMPLAINED ABOUT DEADPOOL CAMEO! fark that. Tell the truth! He didn't like the way they showed a woman flashing her tits..thought it demeaned women. He's a farking gentleman.

I haven't even seen all of Deadpool. But I LOVED Guardians of the Galaxy, and missed the sequel in theaters, and want to own it since I already know it will be good, and think they are probably only doing one more with the orignal characters before changing people because those people are DECENT.

EVERYTHING IS GOING DARK. Even marvel. So of course no real heroes like Guardians without them farking that up too in the end after the third one.

but that's okay. I still have my own imagination, and in it, people are kind and decent and heroic, and I don't need to read comics with heroes that aren't heroes anymore.

I'm sure the guy in the Wolverine costume probably hadn't showered in weeks, let alone not having washed the costume either, that Stan is simply just trying to hold it together...I swear it's going to be people like that that are going to kill Stan Lee sooner than later....

Getting Simon and Kirby fired for moonlighting, treating Steve Ditko like shiat, and claiming credit for Dr Strange and the Inhumans are major dick moves. Not Bob Kane level of dickish, but still major dick moves.

Kirby and Ditko's contributions are inestimable and undeniable and Marvel may never have flourished without them but one need only look to their work sans Stan to see it was The Man that built the House of Ideas.

I am neither defending Lee or damning him, but to claim he was devoid of any creativity whatsoever is
asinine and juvenile.

Most of what you said is basically incoherent, the rest is flat out wrong. Stan said the Deadpool cameo was his favorite (granted he usually says that about whatever his last one was), and his only complaint was that he wasn't on set with them but rather in a studio.
What are you talking about "everything going dark"? You Mean like Spiderman Homecoming, or Thor Ragnarok? Or maybe you mean the Tv shows like Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. And the team that you point to as the good guys is the one that is literally made up of outlaws. And while GOTG2 was good it was much darker than either of those other two movies I mentioned.

And regardless of where Stan Kee shot it, he is almost blind. He probably couldn't see strippers in a dark room anyway.

Not to mention that he probably suffered from undiagnosed PTSD from his WWII service, and that is
most likely what drove his creativity.

By all accounts, on a personal level he was one of the nicest people, but that doesn't mean he was
necessarily easy to work with.

I suppose it was bitterness that drive it, but I have seen interviews where he said stuff like 'Lee didn't write any of the stuff we did.'  That's just crazy. If so, then we should be seeing movie series of The Eternals, Devil Dinosaur, etc.

Was Kirby an essential part of Marvel Universe creation-certainly.  But a lot of fans seem to think Lee never shared the credit, and that's just not true.

I never heard that first charge, but the second one is flat-out false. Stan was a HUGE Ditko booster, building Amazing Fantasy around him and hyping his name in the stories and house ads. I think what got under Kirby's skin in the early days was all the attention Stan was giving Ditko, who was younger and had fresher ideas.
