One of the reasons for why I fell in love with Marvel was for the X-Men, co-created by Stan Lee. The X-Men has always been a symbol of hope and a united front against the prejudice and discrimination we see, still to this very day, for people of color and for the LGBT community. We lost a true hero, today, but let us carry on the fight for our rights. Mutant and Proud. Gay and Proud. EXCELSIOR, Stan.
