On Monday night, the news broke that Stan Lee, a Marvel Comics legend, had passed away at the age of 95.
Later on that evening, Wolverine star Hugh Jackman appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and paid a tribute to the man who helped create X-Men.
“Let me just say to the family and to the legions of fans, that I remember Stan as a true gentleman who had this glint in his eye,” says Jackman. “He’s a creative genius, he thought outside the box — he created a whole universe that changed the lives of many people, mine included.”
Jackman goes on to remember an anecdote from Comic Con, where he was on the red carpet as Wolverine — and nobody was taking his photo, because Stan Lee was at the other end. Read more…More about Hugh Jackman, Stephen Colbert, Stan Lee, Culture, and Celebrities

Good news: After being drowned in new iPhone and new Apple Watch news for the past two months, we have finally been blessed with a new MacBook Air model.
Bad news: It’s kind of a letdown. The new Air essentially sports the same old design first introduced in 2008, now with thinner bezels and in colors other than silver (*sarcastic whoopee*). Also, it’s wickedly overpriced for how small the upgrades are. (Read the full review here.)
Back to good news: If you’re not one of those people who insists on having the latest and greatest model of everything, you should know that the just-as-good 5th generation MacBook Air is $500 off at Amazon, dropping the price to just $899. IDK about you, but we’ll take that any day. Read more…More about Tech, Laptops, Macbook Air, Mashable Shopping, and Shopping Amazon
