Jim Zub on Stan Lee's legacy in comics and storytelling
It's rare for someone to create anything as resilient and popular as Spider-Man — and it's almost unheard of for someone to do it again and again — but that's exactly what Stan Lee did, along with his co-writers and artists at Marvel Comics.
Lee died yesterday at the age of 95, but his characters, including the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, Black Panther and a cavalcade of others, will continue to have a real and lasting impact on people.
Jim Zub has been a fan of Lee's writing and vision for superheroes since he was a kid, and for the last five years, he's been living out his dreams as a writer for Marvel Comics. Zub also teaches animation at Seneca College in Toronto.
Today, he joins Tom Power live in the q studio to reflect on Lee's legacy and how the Marvel Comics icon turned the industry on its head.
