— Mr.Collins

“It will affect me greatly because he was a huge part of my childhood,” said EHS Journalism teacher Mr. Collins. I was all about Marvel when I was younger and was a huge Spiderman, Fantastic four and Hulk fan. I even liked the lesser known characters he made, such as the Sub Mariner, which was the Marvel version of Aquaman. I even read the X-men way before It got so popular. So I will be sad. I was sad when I heard the news and I am  still sad. What I think is important is the legacy he left behind. ”

Another student, Chan Riggins, said,  “He created some of my favorite works of fiction and I really got into comic books because of his inspiration and his devotion to society. It feels really sad we lost him because we imagined him as this immortal legend who will never die because he will always hold a special place in our hearts. ”
