POW! Entertainment releases a statement that corresponds to Bill Maher’s insulting comments about Stan Lee his legacy and fans of the series he helped create. The controversial TV personality shared his two cents on Lee’s pass last week, but instead of sending a message of love and support, Maher tried to invalid writer contributions to American culture and mocked people who continue to love and care about superhero stories .
Lee died at the age of 95 on Monday after learning a series of health problems in the last year that forced him to start running public involvement. Since then, the geek community and entertainment industry have generally been saddened by the loss of one of the pioneers in the comic book. Reading comrades and fans around the world have paid their respect for the legend in their own way. Then you enter Maher, who could not have chosen a worse time to mock society.

Maher quickly hit the big backlash with countless fans and public figures chastising him for his insensitive comments. Some did not miss the opportunity to point out that he agreed to make a short como in Iron Man 3 (based on one of the characters Lee created), although his piece was finally removed from the last cut movie. Now, POW! Entertainment officially responds to Maher’s “disgusting” feelings. Read the company’s full letter below:
Mr.. Maher: Comics, like all literature, are storytelling. When they are written well by great creators like Stan Lee, they make us feel, make us think and learn lessons that hopefully make us better people. A lesson Stan taught us so many of us were tolerance and respect, and thanks to that message, we are grateful that we can say that you are entitled to your opinion that the series are childish and unspecified. Many said the same about Dickens, Steinbeck, Melville and even Shakespeare.
But to say that Stan just inspired people to “watch a movie” is, in our opinion, genuinely disgusting. Countless people can certify how Stan inspired them to read, taught them that the world does not consist of absolute, heroes can have flaws and even villains can show humanity in their souls. He gave us X-Men, Black Panther, Spider-Man and many other heroes and stories that offered hope for those who felt different and bullied while inspiring countless to be creative and dreaming of great things to come.
These are but some of the things we think Stan Lee fans also consider “adults,” because life as both children and adults can really be a struggle. Stan is the author of millions of happy childhood memories and the provider of so many of the positive tools for adulthood.
Our shock to your comments makes us want to say, “said Nuff, Bill,” but instead we will rely on another of Stan’s lessons to remind you that you have a powerful platform, so Remember: “With great power it must come too ̵
1; great responsibility!”
Maher’s controversy is not the first to come out in the light of Lee passing. Call me with your name The star Armie Hammer was in hot water after unnecessarily criticizing those who sent pictures of himself with the late doctor on social media to celebrate him. According to the actor, it’s only a way to promote yourself. Hammer apologizes for his comments, but it is doubtful that Maher will follow because he has had a habit of whining controversy for a long time.
POW! Entertainment is currently occupied with continuing to pay respect for Stan Lee . In addition to managing a virtual wall where fans can send their messages and tribute, the company also said they are planning a public memorial for the productive writer and creator. Here, Maher hopes not to feel the need to weigh it too, and can instead decide to let those who miss Lee calm in peace this time. He is right in his opinion, but there are better uses of his platform than denying others.
