Considered one of the most important comic book writers of all time, Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95.

Stan Lee started writing comics in 1939, and he was essential to turn a small editorial into one of the most recognized comic book companies in the world, Marvel Comics.

Stan Lee not only created at least 2186 characters, including the most iconic characters from Marvel, he also started writing complex storylines that were different from anything that came before in comics. Giving personal problems and complex psychological profiles to his characters he turned the industry into a more mature media.

Stan Lee also played a part in taking the comic book characters to television, as animated series, and then to movies. That way his work became known to millions even if they had not read a comic book before,

His cameo appearances in Marvel films also probably turned him into the only comic book writer known beyond his medium.

Talking about his legacy, Stan Lee once said "Entertainment is one of the most important things in people’s lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you’re able to entertain, you’re doing a good thing"

Honoring Stan Lee's legacy and the enjoyment he gave to millions, which character created by Stan Lee is your favourite?

I saw it, but its a different question. One about movies about his character, and this one asking about favourite characters

Pencho15,

Your English is much better than many native speakers of English.

I found only two very trivial issues.

Add a period:

Talking about his legacy, Stan Lee once said "Entertainment is one of the most important things in people’s lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you’re able to entertain, you’re doing a good thing"

The IMDb Editors prefer American English spelling over British English spelling.

When you wrote, "ortographical" you probably should have written "orthographical."

Norm Crosby is an American comic who chronically misuses words for comic effect.

Like Jen said I learned a new word, ortographical. Orthographical has to do with feet.
It is called a "Malapropism" when you misuse words for comic effect.
Your use of ortographical was correct. As Jen said we learned a new word from someone who does not speak it as a first language. High praise to you. You are attempting to be perfect with your use of English. My hats off to you. Salutations. Good Show. Norm Crosby worked real hard to be funny finding ways to butcher English for comedic effect. When you used ortographical I just thought that Norm, who by the way is still alive would have found a way to make it funny, that is if anyone actually who speaks English even knew what it meant. Short of professors of English and maybe one in ten thousand English speaking persons on the earth knowing what you just said, and even registering it as a recognizable word within their own vocabulary at all, would find it funny. Making English funny by misusing it was very hard work. Norm is a master at it. So, you wrote nothing wrong. I hope you look at some of Norm's work on You Tube.
I'm sorry for making you feel bad. Your English is so good that I forgot that it is not your first language.
I'm the one that should say sorry.
Oh yeah,
Sorry.
Cheers

Words comig from Latin come naturally to me as they are the base for the Spanish I use everyday. It is the second time I remember my use of them creates a debate around here. The other was when I used cinematographical in a poll about cities, altought the final title was Cinematic Cities. I'm glad it becomes something interesting and a chance to learn. I know this latin and greek words are not as easy in English.

As a show of these there is a scene in The Wizard of Oz where the Wizard tries to say Philanthropist, but he is unable too do it and ends up saying "a good-deed doer". Good-deed doer would be so much hard to say for someone who speaks a romance language.


Thanks for checking the spelling Dan, the corrections have been made. I also found a third mistake as there was a comma instead of a point at the end of one sentence, that has been changed too.

My favorite character is Loki, but isn't he and Thor from Norse mythology?

They are based on Norse mythology, but they are not considered to be the mythological characters. If you check anywhere let it be Wikipedia, Marvel Comics or Marvel Wiki at Wikia, those and all other characters based in some kind of myth are credited as creations of the first writer and artist that put them into a comic book.


Other characters from mythology like Hercules or Gilgamesh are in the same case, and if it comes to happen that different comic book companies have both characters based on mythology with the same name and similar back history, they are also considered fully independent and a creation of the writer.

In the particular case of Thor, Loki and ther Asgardians, in Marvel Comics they are considered an extraterrestial race, not gods, making them different from the source material.
