Jesus Is Our Real Super Hero

Jesus with Marvel

I wanted to take a moment and recognize Stan Lee.  He died today at the age of 95.  I loved all the Marvel Comics and I had a bunch of them growing up.  I still have a box under the stairs filled with old comics.  Spider-Man was my favorite and I loved hulk too.  I had a Spider-Man big wheel in the 80s folks!  I loved reading about all the super heroes in the comics and I watched all the cartoons growing up.  Stan Lee definitely had a big impact on my childhood, so I wanted to pay my respect to him and his family.

“Stan Lee, the writer, editor, and former publisher and president of Marvel Comics who co-invented Spider-Man and was responsible for turning superhero comic books into a phenomenon, died Monday at the age of 95.  Lee was taken to Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Medical Center on Monday after suffering a medical emergency; he was declared dead shortly afterwards, Lee’s daughter confirmed to Variety.” -Douglas Wolk, Rolling Stone

It always amazes me when someone lives to be over 90!  Stan was a great writer with an incredible imagination and his stories will continue on.  My son loves Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk and we have enjoyed the cartoons and movies many times together.  It is always fun to see Stan’s cameos in the movies!  I have always loved the lessons in Stan’s stories of standing up for what is right and doing the right thing even in the face of adversity.  His comics sparked dreams of what could be for many young kids and who knows, maybe God even used my love of comics to draw me to Jesus.

I love that cartoon pin!  Jesus truly is our ultimate super hero who has conquered sin and death and saved the world!  He even gives us “super powers” in the Holy Spirit too!  Super heroes are so popular because deep in our hearts we all desperately want to be rescued!  We were designed to need God.  The Marvel characters are fun to read about in comics and watch in movies, but the truth of God’s power and love in real life are so much better because in the end we need more than a super hero.  We need a Savior!

May God bless and comfort the Lee family.

Grace and peace to you all!

“I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever!  And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”

  1. Ryan, this was excellent!!! One of your top best writings for me. Jesus is our super hero! I got a kick out of the cartoon, it’s great. Very nice article on Stan Lee.
