…and like so many fans of the Marvel Universal it was sad to hear news about the passing of the Great Stan Lee yesterday morning. The guy who had me thinking that one day I too could grow up to be bitten by a radioactive spider or be showered with cosmic rays and join the Marvel Universe with superhuman strength. I pounded many a small tree limb that I found lying on the ground that looked like a cane hoping it would be the one that would turn into an amulet and transform me into the Mighty Thor. Stan Lee had me dreaming of being next to a nuclear site so I too could be exposed to gamma rays that would turn my skin green while my body would grow and burst of my clothing and transform into the Incredible Hulk! But I guess the closest I ever got to joining the Marvel Universe was to join the Merry Marvel Marching Society and buy the latest issue of Marvel Comics to see what new adventure would await my comic book hero’s. Yeah, sad day for the Marvel Universe as Excelsior moves on to the next big adventure and in the words of Stan Lee, Nuff Said!
