Stan Lee, Marvel, and God’s Big Story

Earlier this week, Stan Lee, legendary co-creator of many of the super heroes we as a culture have come to love, passed away at the age of 95. If you’ve been online at all, you’ve no doubt seen many posts about how Stan Lee’s characters have impacted many people throughout the years.

The movies alone based on his characters have generated more money than I can imagine, and the stories that have been told by these super heroes have touched so many kids and kids-at-heart.

My own family loves Marvel characters and have had many great moments getting lost in the stories that were told. One of my professors, Dr. Timothy Paul Jones, has given us an incredible overview of why we are so intrigued by the metanarrative of the Marvel comics and movies.

I hope you’ll take some time to read it.
