Earlier this morning, it was reported that the Marvel Comics luminary had died at the age of 95 after he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Now, the Internet at large is mourning the death of Stan Lee, who, together with Jack Kirby, launched Marvel back in 1961, before going on to create such iconic characters as Black Panther, Spider-Man, the X-Men and Fantastic Four. And that’s just scratching the surface, as Lee’s enduring legacy will live on for generations to come. Hell, if they’re right in saying we die twice – once when they bury you in the grave, and the last time someone mentions your name – then Stan Lee may well prove immortal.

Here’s a small sampling of the heartfelt tributes currently flooding social media, as the Internet prepares to fly its flag at half-mast in honor of the late, great Stan Lee.

So, while his characters were imbued with great power (and even greater responsibility), perhaps Stan Lee had the greatest superpower of all: imagination. It doesn’t take a soothsayer to realize that he’s fondly remembered by his family and friends, and we imagine these touching tributes will continue to flood social media over the coming days and weeks.

Indeed, this statement, from Disney CEO Bob Iger, really captures the spirit and legacy of Stan Lee:

Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created. A superhero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect. The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart.

To Stan “The Man” Lee, may he rest in peace.
