Earlier today, it was announced that Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee, co-creator of such characters as Spider-Man, the X-Men, and Black Panther, died at the age of 95.
Stan Lee’s influence over rock music via the power of his characters cannot be overstated. For decades, rock musicians have been inspired by the grandiosity, costumes, and epic adventures of the characters Lee created.
In his memory, several rock stars have taken to social media to sing his praises. You can see some of these responses below:

I really don’t have words to describe what Stan meant to me. I don’t know how to quantify what his imagination meant/means to my life. Everything I have ever done creatively has been influenced by The Man, a constant in my life for 50 years. In The Man’s own words, ‘Nuff said.” #Excelsior #MMMS #FOOM #SOAPBOX #StanLee
