Bill Maher Disrespects Comic Book Culture After Stan Lee's Death

It seems as if Bill Maher is blaming Stan Lee for a comic book culture and even went as far as to say that Donald Trump “could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important.”

“The guy who created Spider-Man and the Hulk has died, and America is in mourning. Deep, deep mourning for a man who inspired millions to, I don’t know, watch a movie, I guess. Someone on Reddit posted, ‘I’m so incredibly grateful I lived in a world that included Stan Lee.‘ Personally, I’m grateful I lived in a world that included oxygen and trees, but to each his own,” the Real Time with Bill Maher host wrote on his blog on Saturday (November 17).

“Now, I have nothing against comic books – I read them now and then when I was a kid and I was all out of Hardy Boys. But the assumption everyone had back then, both the adults and the kids, was that comics were for kids, and when you grew up you moved on to big-boy books without the pictures,” he continued.

“But then twenty years or so ago, something happened – adults decided they didn’t have to give up kid stuff. And so they pretended comic books were actually sophisticated literature…And now when adults are forced to do grown-up things like buy auto insurance, they call it ‘adulting,’ and act like it’s some giant struggle,” Bill continued. “I’m not saying we’ve necessarily gotten stupider. The problem is, we’re using our smarts on stupid stuff. I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important.”

Stan Lee Didn't See His 'Ralph Breaks the Internet' Cameo Before His Death

Stan Lee has a brief cameo in Ralph Breaks the Internet, but did not get a chance to see the movie before his tragic death earlier this week.

The cameo comes when Sarah Silverman‘s character Vanellope and John C. Reilly‘s character Ralph are exploring the “Oh My Disney” section of the Internet. Vanellope bumps into a man, who turns around and reveals himself to be Stan.

“He did not see it,” co-director Rich Moore told The Wrap. “That scene seems very poignant now on his passing, and it’s very special that we were able to have him as part of our film.”

Co-director Phil Johnson added, “For a moment, we had this thing called ‘Marvelize Yourself,’ where the human avatar is able to go through what looks like a metal detector and turn into a Marvel character. And as part of that scene, we had Stan Lee go through the Marvelizer. But when we decided to lose that joke and not use the scene, we still wanted to have Stan Lee in the movie, because we love Stan Lee.”

“And we thought it would be appropriate that he does a Stan Lee-type cameo,” Rich added.

“I didn’t truly know Stan Lee. I typically connected with him at comic conventions where I would find myself utterly worn out and growing ragged or weary. It was usually around that time in the day that I would hear a stir in the crowd, and then watch a true rock-star electrify thousands of awaiting fans with the wave of his exuberant, 95-year-old hand. He delighted me every time. “How does he have more energy at 95 than I do at 39?” I would ask myself,” she wrote.

“At a time when the world feels so tragic, I hope Stan’s life and legacy will remind us, today, of the wonders and the hope that still exist among, and within us. I want to keep telling Stan’s stories because I want to keep that spirit alive with him as I carry on angling to ‘skid in sideways’ to my bitter end with as much zeal and panache as Stan managed to. He is an inspiration to me. Live on, Stan. Legends never die.”
