That One Time A Stan Lee Voice Over Went Right To My Core

Stan Lee was one of the most influential creatives in pop culture. He’s brought many people of different cultures, ages, and backgrounds together through comics and has become the much-anticipated cameo in most Marvel films since the 80’s.

This creative genius began his career working as an assistant at Timely Comics in 1939 and has since created and co-created hundreds of Marvel characters including Spider-Man, The Hulk, Black Panther, Thor, and The Fantastic 4 to name a few.

Since his unfortunate passing, I feel myself becoming even more of a fan of Marvel comics due to the incredibly relatable human elements Stan Lee created within each of these superheroes.

It’s only fitting to find a video which features each one of his cameos from 1989’s The Trial of the Incredible Hulk to 2018’s Thor: Ragnarok. (Avengers: Infinity War was not featured so I’ll just mention right now, Stan Lee as a school bus driver was also amazing).

The video shows all of Stan Lee cameos in chronological order and in addition some incredibly inspirational words from Stan the man himself, one of which hit me right to the core:

“Heroes show us you don’t have to be perfect to do what’s right” – Stan Lee, from A trailer for Marvel’s The Defenders.

I don’t think my one little article about Stan Lee Cameos can do him justice but I am sure his memory is being honoured all over the globe.

I have personally found inspiration from his wise words and I hope you do too.
