The World Lost It's Grandpa This Weekend, And No One Knows How To Handle It- Remembering Stan Lee

The World Lost It's Grandpa This Weekend, And No One Knows How To Handle It- Remembering Stan Lee

If you know, you know.


Stan the man, smiley Stan, the cameo king, and creative genius- this weekend we lost one of the most talented men in the whole world.

He created an experience on paper and in theaters that changed people's lives. It is only appropriate to celebrate the man who made us all believe in superheroes by looking back on who he was and where his heart resided. It is all about remembering the way that his humor and intelligence joined together to form what will live on forever as nothing less than legendary.

What better way to celebrate his life than with some of the best cameos of all time, am I right?


Lee appears at the beginning of the first Thor movie as a truck driver who is trying to pull Mjölnir out of the ground with the backside of his truck.

Let's be real, if anyone else would be able to pick up Thor's hammer, it Stan Lee.

2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Just like we all hoped, Stan Lee makes an appearance with the Watchers.

It is accurate, if anyone is watching over the multiverses, it is Stan the Man.

3. Thor Ragnarok 

Sakaar's finest barber, Stan Lee.

"And don't you move, my hands aren't as steady as they used to be!" Lee proclaims as he tries to cut Thor's hair.

4. Captain America: Civil War

An all-time favorite.

Lee appears in a sweet and semi-serious moment looking for someone by the name of "Tony Stank". There is no way anyone can watch this cameo without a giggle.

I am certain that the entire world felt a void when Stan Lee passed away, especially those who knew him personally.

"How many millions of us are indebted to this guy, none more so than me. The father of Marvel has made so many people so incredibly happy. What a life and what a thing to have achieved. Rest in peace Stan" -Tom Holland (Spiderman 2017)

"Thanks for everything Stan Lee! What a life, so well lived. I consider myself extraordinarily lucky to have gotten to meet you and to have played in the world you created." -Chris Pratt (Starlord)

"I owe it all to you, rest in peace Stan" -Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man)

And finally, Chris Evans said it best:

"There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!"

For the rest of time, Stan Lee and his comics will wow the world and bring our favorite stories to life. There is no proper way to grieve the death of someone who changed the world in the way that Stan Lee did. For now, we reminisce, and as for the future: we anxiously await the appearances Lee will make in finished movies. *queue uncontrollable sobs*.

Me Saying I Don't Watch 'Game of Thrones' Is NOT Your Cue To Convince Me To Start

"Once you've accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you."


Yes, I have flaws. We all do. But it seems as if though my biggest flaw is that I have never seen "Games of Thrones." Nope, not even one single second. I don't know why I haven't seen it, it's not that I'm particularly against the show. I guess it's just too late now for me to start it, as the premiere of the eighth and final season aired April 14th. And for some reason, I just feel that I'm too far behind to even attempt to start it.

But please, I beg of you, do not try to get me to watch it. I don't want to; I've made my decision that I have missed the "Game of Thrones" train and I have accepted my fate. It's OK, you can use your heavy TV series persuasion on someone else, don't waste it on me.

But not being a Thronie (I have no idea if you "Game of Thrones" fans actually use that term, but it's fine) comes with its own set of hardships. Yes, I know that missing out on "unquestionably the most acclaimed and beloved show on television" is probably the greatest hardship, I know, I know.

But trying to scroll through social media while seemingly every single person on my feed is posting about the show? Now that's hard. I see memes left and right, constant reaction videos, clips of scenes that I will never understand. I see people being shocked by certain characters doing certain things to certain other characters and I just cannot understand! It's tough, it really is. I feel like I'm in elementary school, sitting on the bench beside the playground watching all of the cool kids playing together. I feel excluded and uninvited to the party that is the "Game of Thrones" fandom.

It really is hard. It's difficult not understanding the jokes and comments about all the happenings in "Game of Thrones." But to those who are obsessed avid watchers, I apologize. I sincerely am sorry that I can never understand your "Game of Thrones" talk. I am sorry that my inferior self is not interested in your favorite show.

As some character that I will never know in "Game of Thrones" says, "once you've accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you." I have accepted that my major flaw is the fact that I have never seen "Game of Thrones" and that I, unfortunately, have no interest in watching. So please, don't use it against me. Besides, that one character that I don't even know said that you can't anyway.
