The Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee’s social media pages on Thursday posted a final message from the legend himself, who died at the age of 95 on Monday. The tweet was attached with a video, highlighting Stan’s gratitude for his fans.
The official page tweeted, “So many wonderful moments with Stan came spontaneously. As we were setting up the camera one day, he casually started talking about his fans. We know how much Stan meant to you, and we thought it would be nice for you to hear how much your support meant to him.”

In the 1.38-minute-long video, Stanley talks about the equal love-fest. “I love my fans. I cannot tell you how much I love my fans. Sometimes, at night, when I’m sitting here, and I’m thinking, ‘Oh, what’s it all about?,’ and then I get a letter from a fan, or I read something, or I see something, or I remember something, and I realize, it’s so lucky to have fans -- fans who really care about you. And that’s the reason I care so much about the fans, because they make me feel so great, and there’s something, if you think about it, is just so wonderful about somebody caring about you as I care about them, whom you’ve never met, who may live in another part of the world. But they care, and you have something in common, and occasionally you contact each other. This business of fans, I think is terrific, and I love ‘em all,” added the Marvel Comics legend.
Stan revolutionised pop culture as the co-creator of iconic superheroes like Spider-Man, Avengers, Iron Man, Black Panther and The Hulk who now dominate the world's movie screens. He had started Marvel comics with Jack Kirby in 1961 with 'Fantastic Four'. He also made cameo appearances in all of the Marvel movies.
He is survived by his daughter. His wife, Joan, died in 2017.
