Rick & Rick Remember Stan Lee

💥 Despite the fact that they'd discussed this eventuality in their season one review of "Ant-man and the Wasp," word that Stan Lee had passed away November 12 still hit the Ricks hard.

Also unexpected: The outpouring of love and appreciation from some of Hollywood's biggest names for an icon who entertained and inspired generations of fans.

In this quick-take episode recorded just hours after the news broke, Rick and Rick talk about the legacy of a larger-than-life figure who shaped the world of comic books—and redefined pop culture—in a remarkable career that spanned seven decades.
