Undoubtedly the heart and soul of the Marvel Universe, Stan the man always felt like he would go on forever but alas we aren't all blessed with the long life of the Asgardians and so it was that today he went to join Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and of course his wife Joanne who passed not so long ago in the pantheon of legends never to be forgotten.
Legendary Actor Martin Landau Dies At 89
Variety reported Sunday evening that Oscar-winning actor Martin Landau died Saturday at the age of 89. He was in Los Angeles, and his publicist told Variety that he had been hospitalized before he passed away.
Landau enjoyed a long and celebrated car…
