Line(s) of the Day #StanLee

“I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic-book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realise: entertainment is one of the most important things in people’s lives. Without it they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you’re able to entertain people, you’re doing a good thing.”

“Another definition of a hero is someone who is concerned about other people’s well-being, and will go out of his or her way to help them – even if there is no chance of a reward. That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero.”

I wouldn’t normally use two quotes for a post, but it was impossible to choose between these two. Thanks to his many dynamic and modern Marvel creations like Spiderman, Thor, Hulk, Black Panther and the X-Men, the 95-year-old Lee helped launch the comic books revolution that has led to the incredible popularity of blockbuster superhero films. Thank you Stan Lee (1922 – 2018).

  1. Love both quotes, Alex. It is true that without entertainment many of us would really go off the deep end. Thank you for sharing both of these quotes because both of them I can relate to. Have a great day today! God bless this man who has gone to the better place for what he has given to us leaving his legacy behind. 💕💖💝

  2. Marvel and Stan Lee felt like residents in my home. I remember telling my son, that i wished he knew his school work that well. Hed laugh and whilst i crocheted Stan Lee brought my viewing famiky together. We could all be superheros if we wanted.
