É, true believers, aconteceu: Stan Lee faleceu.
Aos 95 anos de idade, Stan Lee – nascido Stanley Martin Lieber – faleceu hoje de causas não reveladas até o momento da elaboração dessa nota.
Para aqueles que não sabem, Stan Lee é o co-criador de boa parte dos super-heróis que povoam o imaginário popular, como Homem-Aranha, Homem de Ferro, Quarteto Fantástico, Hulk, Demolidor, X-men, entre outros.
Mais tarde, com o advento dos filmes de super-heróis, e logo após do universo cinematográfico da Marvel, ele passou a ser conhecido pelos seus cameos (participações especiais) em todos os filmes do tipo, incluindo animações como Big Hero 6 e Teen Titans Go! To the Movies.
Obviamente toda a comunidade do entretenimento, incluindo alguns dos atores que interpretaram seus personagens, lamentaram sua morte:

There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!

We’ve lost a creative genius. Stan Lee was a pioneering force in the superhero universe. I’m proud to have been a small part of his legacy and …. to have helped bring one of his characters to life. #StanLee #Wolverine pic.twitter.com/iOdefi7iYz

No one has had more of an impact on my career and everything we do at Marvel Studios than Stan Lee. Stan leaves an extraordinary legacy that will outlive us all. Our thoughts are with his daughter, his family, and his millions of fans. #ThankYouStan #Excelsior!

His contribution to Pop Culture was revolutionary & cannot be overstated. He was everything you hoped he would be & MORE. I loved this man & will never stop missing him. They say you should never meet a childhood idol. They are wrong. #RIPStanTheMan pic.twitter.com/6OKH07ahJg

He changed the way we look at heroes, and modern comics will always bear his indelible mark. His infectious enthusiasm reminded us why we all fell in love with these stories in the first place. Excelsior, Stan.

I am not going to be able to speak about this this morning, I can see that.
But under the persona, Stan Lee was a real human being. I met him three times and three times he told me something literally life-changing.
I hope everyone knows, he cared about us. That was no act.
