Sad sad news yesterday with the passing of Marvel comics legend Stan Lee. Even though I identify myself primarily as a DC comics fan, ANY fans of comics can’t deny the greatness of Stan Lee and his creative genius that birthed so many unforgettable characters.
As a KISS fan, Gene Simmons has stated on many occasions how influential Stan Lee’s marvel characters were for him growing up and how they helped him forge the creation of the character we would forever become synonymous with – The Demon.
Gene is just one of millions that Stan Lee has inspired with the characters that grace the silver screen multiple times a year now. Since 2008 and the release of Iron Man, Marvel Studios has dominated the box office with hit after hit. And it shouldn’t really be a surprise. The movies have years and years of great comic material to pull from. The artwork, the stories, it really was just a matter of time before these characters came to life. And we all have Stan Lee to thank for what now is now dubbed the MCU – Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With all that said, I figured I’d take the time to give you all access to my top 10 movies from the MCU. It’s the least I could do to give a little salute to Mr. Stan Lee.
To keep a little mystery I figure I’ll reveal from 10-1. (If you read any previous blogs regarding my favorite MCU movies, this list is definitely revised)
