Bill Maher Under Fire for Saying Stan Lee’s ‘Stupid’ Comic Books Led to Donald Trump’s Election

HBO late-night host Bill Maher came under fire this weekend after suggesting that America’s fondness for the late Stan Lee’s “stupid” comic books is part of the reason why Donald Trump was elected president.

Lee, who died earlier this week at the age of 95, created iconic comic book characters including Spider-Man, the Hulk, and the X-Men, while also helping to re-invent characters Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and other signature characters for Marvel’s main rival DC Comics.

Maher’s comments drew immediate ire from comic book fans and writers alike, with cartoonist Greg Capullo and writer G. Willow Wilson denouncing Maher’s analysis.

People are shock that bill Maher attack grean man Stan Lee, not me he still hurt his neoliberal friend HRC lost worst politician, Bill is racist and many other thing — kajaraj ?????? (@kajokc3513) November 18, 2018

I just know that anyone who pisses on people for mourning a man who helped make them happy is a titanic waste of space.
