One of the final recordings made of Stan Lee was the Marvel icon talking about how much he adored his fans.

Lee died Monday. He was 95.
"So many wonderful moments with Stan came spontaneously," reads the text tweeted with the video. "As we were setting up the camera one day, he casually started talking about his fans. We know how much Stan meant to you, and we thought it would be nice for you to hear how much your support meant to him."
The video is about 90 seconds long. Lee sits and speaks from the heart.
"I love my fans," Lee begins. "I cannot tell you how much I love my fans. Sometimes at night, I am sitting here thinking, 'What's it all about?' And then I get a letter from a fan or I read something or I see something or I remember something. And I realize, it's so lucky to have fans, fans who really care about you. That's the reason I care so much about the fans because they make me feel so great."
He continues, "And there's something, if you think about it, wonderful about someone caring about you — as I care about them — whom you've never met. They may live in another part of the world. But they care and you have something in common. And occasionally you contact each other. But this business of fans I think is terrific, and I love them all."
In the days since his death, countless fans have posted tributes on social media and numerous actors who have played roles Lee helped create have paid their respects. After the news of his death broke, Lee's name was trending worldwide on Twitter the remainder of the day. His passing made headlines not just around the country, but around the world.
