Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee Remembered Fondly

The beloved head of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, died this week at 95, leaving behind a long legacy, including fan-favorite character, Spider-Man, among many others.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of American Adults have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Lee, born Stanley Martin Lieber, including 28% with a Very Favorable one. Just 12% view the former Marvel publisher unfavorably, including three percent (3%) with a Very Unfavorable opinion. But 40% don’t know enough about the comic book magnate to venture an opinion.
