Hugh Jackman shares a humbling story about Stan Lee

"There will never be another Stan Lee".

In the mid 1950s Timely was known as Atlas Comics and Lee was writing romance, Westerns, sci fi and horror.

For Lee, creating superheroes was a pretty straightforward task. That's what made Spidey so relatable to kids around the world. I always felt that way about Superman: Clark Kent was just a guy, a reporter.

Stan Lee also worked as an editor, publisher, media producer, television host, actor and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics.

Stan Lee made a major impact on both the comic-book and film industries as Marvel made a stunning move into cinema.

The works and ideas of Lee and the artists behind T'Challa, the Black Panther; Luke Cage, Hero for Hire; and Professor Xavier's band of merry mutants - groundbreaking during the 1960s and '70s - have become a cultural force breaking down barriers to inclusion. I'm a huge fan of Avengers and X-Men.

The characters in the X-Men were outsiders, but they were also strong, independent and powerful role models for a dorky queer kid growing up without a lot of cash, and with a lot of quirks that weren't that well received by the suburban elite at my school. In fact, as a child, I would dream of being a superhero. So Stan Lee's passing feels weird, because it feels like someone who is a part of my dream has left.

He might be gone, but the world he created with strokes of his imagination will live on forever.

The video kicks off with a much younger version of the icon in 1968 with some footage from a TV pilot, with Stan Lee explaining his relationship to young readers that, especially fifty years ago, seemed forward thinking.
