“He was a really good person,” junior Tristan Jenkins said. Lee’s creations have changed pop culture. People grow up watching these heroes and enjoy them. Lee’s comic books, as well as movies inspired from them, have brightened childhoods since they’ve existed. They’ve inspired many people, and have given children characters to idolize.

“My favorite is the Hulk. He’s a beast and won’t take anything from anyone,” Jenkins said. Everyone has a hero that inspires them the most. Whether it’s a web-slinging spider, a Wakandan king, or a soldier who gained super strength from an experiment, everyone has a character they like the most. Maybe they relate to them the most, or maybe they like their personality and powers, students have a character that they connect to the best and like to watch more than anyone.
