Marvel’s Stan Lee speaks out against hatred, bigotry and intolerance

Stan Lee

In the last few years there has been a great surge of people that have taken offense to the growing diversity in the characters that Marvel Comics has populated their comic book series with. It comes at the same time that the nation as a whole is dealing with the same sorts of levels of hatred, ignorance and violence coming out of the shadows in greater numbers.

While Marvel creators have spoken out against both of these things, most of the people tend not to listen. None of the heroes from the pages can rise up to help us or talk to these people, but one of the men that helped create many of them has chosen to speak out.

Stan Lee, former writer and editor-in-chief and many other things at Marvel, stars in a new video released by Marvel affirming that while everyone has a place in the Marvel Universe there is no room for hatred, intolerance or bigotry in either world.
