"Thanks for everything Stan Lee! What a life, so well lived. I consider myself extraordinarily lucky to have gotten to meet you and to have played in the world you created," Pratt wrote.

KISS bassist Gene Simmons thanked the legend for making his childhood "so much more exciting."
"To Stan Lee: Thank you for making my childhood so much more exciting with your astonishing superhero characters. Thank you for inspiring me to think and dream big. Thank you for the Hulk, Thor, Fantastic Four and many others," Simmons wrote. "You will be sadly missed. RIP."
"With great power comes immortality," Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted.
There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!
RIP, Stan Lee. He was one of my idols. One of the most prolific and influential authors of our time. His stories taught and entertained. And his characters made this nerd feel a part of a tribe of beautiful, wonderful weirdos. Thank you Stan. For everything... pic.twitter.com/oSnNvfCStE
Sad news to hear today. Even though I never met Stan Lee, I know I'm not alone when I say he had an enormous impact on the life through the characters he created. I am forever grateful for that. #RIPStanLeehttps://t.co/pYPTheZDH6
His contribution to Pop Culture was revolutionary & cannot be overstated. He was everything you hoped he would be & MORE. I loved this man & will never stop missing him. They say you should never meet a childhood idol. They are wrong. #RIPStanTheManpic.twitter.com/6OKH07ahJg
We’ve lost a creative genius. Stan Lee was a pioneering force in the superhero universe. I’m proud to have been a small part of his legacy and .... to have helped bring one of his characters to life. #StanLee#Wolverinepic.twitter.com/iOdefi7iYz
At age 7, I drew this weird portrait of Stan Lee and asked my Mom to send it to him. Thankfully she didn't because 30+ years later, I got to give it to the great one in person. Thanks for all the fun Stan #Excelsiorpic.twitter.com/IpfYBSjWyf
What can I say about the loss of a visionary who created one of my favorite characters I've ever played? Stan Lee's fun-loving wit, charm, and poetic legacy will keep him alive for generations to come. My heart hurts, and he will be sorely missed.#StanLee#RIP@TheRealStanLeepic.twitter.com/EPST2GkNTu
It’s with great sadness and respect that I write this note! I loved Stan Lee and was honored to be in Nick Fury and the Guardians Inferno end titles song with him. He is what America is about! A true Hero, Inspiration and the ultimate Gentleman!! #stanlee#marvelcomics#nickfurypic.twitter.com/2JcO6cX35j
Stan Lee impacted us all in such a major way, and not just by bringing us epic stories. Superheroes have taught us so much about morality and empathy; what is right, and what is wrong. Thank you, Stan Lee, for providing amazing role models for so many generations. #Excelsiorpic.twitter.com/7xThJDkYr2
He inspired millions with his myriad, “Marvelous” characters, from Spiderman to Black Panther, Thor to the X-Men. Legendary creator Stan Lee is dead at 95. But his stories will live on and continue to ignite the imaginations of generations to come. Rest with the stars, great sir.
What a man. What a life. When I first broke into Hollywood, he welcomed me with open arms and some very sage advice I’ll forever take to heart. A true icon who impacted generations around the world. Rest in love, my friend. #imagination#stanlee 💫 pic.twitter.com/dw3FXMgyHp
