I had an idea I would like to try for my new superhero story. I have always been a fan and admirer of Stan Lee, the founder of the modern superhero genre. I kept track of all his cameos, attended some of his conventions, and watched a number of his shows. Now, however, a bright light has gone out in the universe when Stan Lee died. He was two years older than my sainted grandmother. Thanks to his decades of creating superheroes, Stan Lee has left an overwhelmingly fruitful legacy. He gave us superheroes such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, and the X-Men. To honor and pay tribute to Stan’s memory and legacy, I am thinking of basing a major supporting character in my new superhero story after him. The character will not share his name, but he will share some aspects of Stan’s physical appearance and personality. This character will serve as a homage and salute to this great man!
When Marvel Studios did a montage of all of Stan Lee’s cameos over the years in the opening of Captain Marvel, the only words that crossed my mind were, “We love you, Stan!”
Tonight, I hit the mother load! I came across this streaming website called Curiosity Stream, which features all the documentaries I will ever need for inspiration for my books. The genres the documentaries came in included history and science. The history documentaries will come in handy while writing my fantasy books because there are plenty of medieval documentaries. The science documentaries will come in handy with my science fiction and superhero books due to having futuristic and biological documentaries. I look forward to start watching everything this website has to offer and I will share what I have learned with you.
I was one blessed geek today! I got to meet the man who has been the voice of Batman for as long as I have been alive: Kevin Conroy! I grew up watching this man’s version of Batman! Just being in his presence made my life complete! It was like meeting the Dark Knight in person!
At WonderCon, I got to meet one of the actors who did the voice for Speedy Gonzales, the fastest mouse in all of Mexico! I remember watching the Speedy Gonzales cartoons when I was a kid so meeting this man was nostalgic.
Today, I went to WonderCon with my dad and it was a glorious time!
