Larry King: One thing you'd change about the world?
Stan Lee: What would I change? I'd make people not hate each other ─ because of their religion, because of their nationality, because of any stupid reason. If we could abolish hatred, we'd live on this gorgeous planet. There's a character I wrote called the Silver Surfer, and I always had him making those kind of remarks, philosophical things about . . . He was from another world, and said, "Why don't we realize we're on a planet that gives us everything: food, beautiful weather, sun, everything. Why don't we enjoy it? Why do we spend time fighting and hating each other?"
Because we're stupid.
You'll be forever missed, dear sir.
