Stan Lee verstorben: die Welt nimmt Abschied (Auszüge aus dem Netz)

  • Beitrags-Autor:

Der Tod von Stan Lee am vergangenen Montag Morgen kam gewiss nicht unerwartet. Die bis dahin lebende Legende hatte nicht nur ein stolzes Alter von zarten 95 Jahren erreicht, sondern war vornehmlich in den vergangenen Monaten gesundheitlich sehr angeschlagen.
Dennoch... und das haben die weltweiten Reaktionen auf den Tod Lees gezeigt, ging die eingehende Meldung bei Weitem nicht spurlos an der Comicwelt und noch weit darüber hinaus vorbei.

Comicautor Roy Thomas veröffentlichte kurz darauf einen tollen Text im Netz, denn er traf Lee nur wenige Stunden vor seinem Tod und nahm vielleicht eines der letzten oder gar das letzte Foto von Stan Lee mit ihm auf.

Hier der Text im Original:

I’m sadder than I can say that Stan has died… even though I know, from my recent phone conversations with him, that he was more than ready to leave this Earth. I’m so grateful that, by sheer circumstance, I got to spend a half hour or so with him this past Saturday, less than 48 hours before he passed away.

At that time, it was obvious that he lacked much of the old Stan Lee energy that everybody had got to know at conventions and in movie cameos, but when I asked him about future cameos, he expressed a real interest in making them, if he could find a way to do it without their being too much trouble. He asked me about Dann and all the animals on our place (Dann had, at his request, sent him a DVD we made for him a couple of years ago), and got fairly animated when talking about his battles with publisher Martin Goodman over doing Spider-Man.

I opined as how maybe the one important creative decision Goodman ever made was when he commissioned Stan to create a super-hero group back in 1961. Stan seemed to get a kick out of that.  He posed for a couple of pictures with me, and then the last one with me and my friend and manager John Cimino, who had worked (in concert with Stan’s buddy and handler Jon Bolerjack) to arrange for Stan and me to get together one more time. But I wish I could look forward to seeing him and sparring around with him again.  Still, I consider myself so very lucky to have known and worked with him for so many years… one of the most important mythmakers of the 20th century.“

Disney Chairman und CEO Bob Iger äußerte sich wie folgt:

Stan Lee war so außergewöhnlich wie die Charaktere die er erschuf. Selbst ein Superheld für Marvel Fans auf der ganzen Welt... Stan hatte die Gabe zu inspirieren, zu unterhalten und Menschen zusammen zu bringen. Das Maß seiner Vorstellungskraft konnte nur durch die Größe seines Herzens übertroffen werden.“

An Stan Lees Stern auf dem Walk of Fame in Hollywood legten Fans und Trauernde Blumen nieder:

Darüber hinaus gab es unzählige Wortmeldungen von Kollegen, Künstlern, Schauspieler, Regisseuren und anderweitigen Kreativen aus der ganzen Welt.

This is how I’ll always see you, @therealstanlee: as our benevolent leader and king, smiling down from your eternal throne on the generations of imaginations you fed and inspired. You were the first creator whose voice I knew before I’d ever actually heard it. You dreamed up some of my favorite modern myths and created characters that instilled in me a moral barometer, teaching me right from wrong and showing me it’s always better to be a hero instead of a villain. Your characters represented us: yes, they had extraordinary, unbelievable abilities, but they were also reflections of a world we knew, where a Spider-Man is really just a boy who wants to help. You showed me how to interact with the audience whenever you stepped onto Stan’s Soapbox to reach out to the readers. You showed me how to advocate for my field beyond the actual art itself whenever you tub thumped for comic books outside of the medium. It was never enough for you to simply make a comic because you were a true salesman at heart. So you not only sold comics, you sold me *on* comics - so much so that I built a life and career around your dreams and ideals. When you did Mallrats with us, you not only made a lifelong fan’s dream come true, you also lent me comic book credibility that I still get to spend today. And whether it was for @comicbookmenamc or @yogahosers, whenever I asked to borrow your heat again, you were always there for me with a smile. Your love story with Joanie and your long, happy marriage always shined as an example of what I wanted for my personal life. I long admired (and emulated) your kindness and patience and sense of humor when dealing with your public. Outside of my parents, you were the one adult who gave me the most useful life skills I still use today. Thank you, Stan, for making me not only the boy I was but also the man I am today. You had great power and you always used it responsibly, fostering billions of dreamers who all know your name - a name written in the stars for all time. You were not just the literary titan of comic books, you were our modern day Mark Twain. I will miss you all my days, my friend and hero. Excelsior forevermore. #KevinSmith #StanLee
