    Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee dead at 95
    • Stan Lee, one of the masterminds of the Marvel comics universe, has died at 95.
    • Lee was the creator of dozens of now-iconic comic-book heroes, including Spider-Man, X-Men, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four and Black Panther.
    • All of those characters have since been adapted into hugely popular budget-busting films, most of which were made after entertainment giant Disney bought Marvel for $4 billion in 2009.

    I was moved to tears after my father called me and said he was killed in a car accident.

    After 50 years on the stage driving from his last concert to the airport. A Slavic singer
    no one knows it here, but he was very cool. Calm smart and grounded. Old school..

    A drunk driver without a driving license crashed his car in a end of a traffic jam. Hm..

    He was a kind of things of being there all you life, present at almost every party and
    always one of the last things remembering before the crash late in the night.. he he he

    And a great singer with a wide voice spectrum..

    He played the ribfest in St. Petersburg FL about 15 years ago. That's where I saw him. Classy guy to play for a ribfest that really really couldn't afford him.
