Following Monday’s news of comic legend Stan Lee’s passing, fans and Hollywood came together via social media to mourn his inspiring career.

Actors, directors, and others who worked with Lee or were inspired by his career shared heartfelt messages on Twitter about lessons learned from the icon.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige tweeted, “No one has had more of an impact on my career ad everything we do at Marvel Studios that Stan Lee. Stan leaves an extraordinary legacy that will outlive us all. Our thoughts are with his daughter, his family, and his millions of fans.”

Chris Evans (Captain America himself) 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!!”

More actors shared their admiration on Twitter.
