It was upsetting because like… I met him one time at Comic Con San Diego. We had a good two-minute conversation… I asked… why make comics? He’s like ‘to give people happiness and hope.’ That right there kind of touched me.

  

Serena Delgado, Theater

I was very sad because I grew up watching all his movies and [reading] comic books. All in all, I was sad to lose one of my idols mainly because I’m also into theater and entertainment… losing someone so big in that field is just sad.

I felt very sympathetic for the family. I also understood he’s 95. To commemorate his death, I am binge-reading my Spiderman comics. Stan Lee has honestly made me want to direct films because he was the main guy for Marvel.

Edward Anderson, Associate of Arts

I didn’t know about it at the time. A little bit sad, he made a lot of movies. Whenever Stan Lee goes into a movie… he doesn’t do it in the way that most people do it that ruins the movie. He does it on a supporting role. If you didn’t know what he looked like, you wouldn’t even recognize him.

 

Keeley Richards, Early Elementary Education

Part of me was really really sad… at the same time, I’m a realist, and yeah he’s 95 years old. I would love it if Deadpool can be the new cameo since he’s already a character that breaks the fourth wall so he can replace [Stan Lee’s cameos].
