“I think everybody loves things that are bigger than life. … I think of them as fairy tales for grown-ups,” he told The Associated Press in a 2006 interview. “We all grew up with giants and ogres and witches. Well, you get a little bit older and you’re too old to read fairy tales. But I don’t think you ever outgrow your love for those kinds of things, things that are bigger than life and magical and very imaginative.”
Everyone looks up to Lee. He is known as the architect of the entertainment industry. The way he wrapped his colorful costumed and action-packed characters with issues concerning the society, satire and even philosophy is just marvelous.
We all love him to the moon and back. May he rest in peace.
