Stan Lee’s Last Words With Protege Two Days Before Death
The world has not been able to get over the death of co-creator of Marvel comics, Stan Lee who died two days ago on November 12.
A new report by TMZ has shown the last picture of Lee which was taken on Saturday, November 10. He was pictured smiling and looking cheerful during what would be his final sit-down with the man he trusted to run Marvel Comics, Roy Thomas.
Thomas who is Lee’s protege and also a comic book writer is reported by his manager, John Cimino to have talked for about 30 minutes with Lee and surprisingly they discussed comics and superheroes during the visit.
According to Cimino, Stan’s last words before he and Roy left were
“God bless. Take care of my boy, Roy.”
Roy released a statement about his last moments with Stan noting the Marvel legend “lacked much of the old Stan Lee energy” most people had come to know him by. He also says Stan seemed enthusiastic about future Marvel movie cameos if he could do them without being too much of a burden. Roy called Stan “one of the most important mythmakers of the 20th century.”
When Stan stepped back from his Marvel Comics duties, he handed the reins to Roy who took over head writing duties for “Spider-Man” and eventually became Stan’s first successor as editor-in-chief at Marvel in 1972.
