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. #RIPStanTheMan pic.twitter.com/6OKH07ahJg

“His contribution to Pop Culture was revolutionary & cannot be overstated. He was everything you hoped he would be & MORE,” Hamill wrote.
“I loved this man & will never stop missing him. They say you should never meet a childhood idol. They are wrong.”
While Hamill is best known for his Star Wars tenure, the actor has also had a history with Marvel. The duo worked together on Black Panther’s Quest, an animated series on Disney XD. Hamill voiced Arnim Zola, a Hydra scientist who battled Captain America for several years.
Hamill spoke with CNET about the gig just before the new project aired, sharing his love for Lee.
“When I hear him read the lines when I hear how talented he is, how he can do another dialect and become another person, it’s fantastic,” Lee said.
“I read lines beautifully, but only as myself. I mean, if I had to be Baron Zemo, I wouldn’t know how to do it, but he becomes Baron Zemo.”
With reports of Lee’s death flooding the internet, Hamill has taken out time to remind fans of the writer’s impact on the comic book and pop-culture world. To many fans all across, Lee was the face of comic books in the west and his dedication never faded even during financial hardships.
