    If it happens in threes, my money is on Stan Lee next. Isn't that guy like 106 years old?

    And so we lose yet another great artist. We're starting to run out of those.

    Let's hope Stan Lee becomes a freaking Highlander from now on, that man CAN'T die, he's too awesome.

    That sucks.
    Captain America is one of my favorite Marvel characters.
    As for Stan, I got to get that man's autograph before he passes. Not to sell it, but because he's freaking awesome D:

    Goodbye Joe. Before William Moulton Marston Made Wonder Woman, both you and Jack Kirby, made the Real American Hero.

    So long as there are still true believers, the story will never end.

    I am, by nature, a cynic. As Ambrose Bierce said:
    "Cynic
    (n.) A blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be. Hence the custom among the Scythians of plucking out a cynic's eyes to improve his vision."

    But Captain America is a character that is about an ideal, an ideal that is all but unassailable. He represents true liberty, freedom, and the wise use of strength.

    However much it may have been corrupted in the real world, in the character Simon created, there is truth:

    "Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — 'No, you move.'"
