My latest piece for Christ and Pop Culture looks at the life and legacy of Stan Lee, who died earlier this week.

[I]it’s nigh-impossible to overstate Stan Lee’s influence and impact on pop culture. For better or worse, the world of comics will probably forever be in his shadow. But perhaps his greatest legacy will be that he never treated comics and superheroes as mere disposable entertainment. Rather, he recognized their power and importance in people’s lives.

God bless, rest in peace, and excelsior!
