That stings. At 95, he had a good run. Still, it always felt to me like he was going to be cameoing in Marvel Movies forever.

He still might
FINE

Captain Marvel and Avengers Infinity War 2 have both finished filming. So presumably he would have done cameos in them.

Avengers 4 cameo (and presumably Captain Marvel) was already filmed. Source here.

In honor of Stan's legacy, I read Marvel's "S Is For Superhero" alphabet book to my 3 month old last night. He was actually really into it... more than any other book I've read to him before.

Stan Lee will be missed. There are elements about him that are troublesome (a sexual harassment allegation that bubbled up a year or two ago, the fact that he was pretty negligent in standing up for his peers) but I still can't not love Stan, despite his flaws. He was just an incredibly charming dude and while it is unclear EXACTLY how much of the Marvel Universe he made up, I feel like his attitude still runs through the DNA of Marvel in a good way.

They will be CGing him into movies, I'm pretty sure. (I am also pretty sure Stan Lee would heartily approve of that)
FINE

He was CG in Big Hero 6. I'm still surprised we never got a sequel to that.

A while back I got the kindle book of The Infinity Gauntlet... here's the thing, I very rarely ever power on my tablet. Even though ebooks are the only thing I use it for I just don't like reading books on it. This is one of those situations I've talked about before where I would much rather have the actual media in hand. I remember about 3 or 4 years ago I actually had the Infinity Gauntlet book that I bought from Amazon and like a damn fool I traded it in... one of these days I will need to buy it back.

I thought he didn't have anything to do with creating Deadpool?

Yeah, Deadpool was all Nicieza and Liefeld. Didn't stop Stan from cameoing in the DP Movies, but he cameoed (Hilariously) in Teen Titans Go To the Movies, too, so...

Correct.  Also, did you know that other superhero names start with e?  He didn't create Captain America either but he wrote Cap stories (including some very early ones) at least.  Also, NO Fantastic Four?  This shirt owes me a "no prize".

That's a pretty big deal for a good price.  I hope they are encouraged to start translating some older stuff.  I understand why Kinnikuman might not be high on their list of priorities (the art in the first few years is pretty amatuerish) but I love it.
