On November 12, 2018, real-life superhero Stan Lee fought his final battle. Lee started in comics in 1939 and helped make Marvel the biggest in the business, creating or co-creating some of the most well-known heroes like Spiderman, the X-Men, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, and the Black Panther. Disney brought Marvel to the big screen with the massively successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, but even before the huge Disney-led films, Lee was given several cameos starring his characters. Here is every one of Stan Lee's appearances from 1989 to his last in 2018.
Richard Browning is the founder and chief test pilot of Gravity, maker of the fastest jet suits in the world. Browning grew up flying model aircraft with his father, an aeronautical engineer, and started designing his first jet suit a few years ago.

It's one of the greatest, most original, most influential hip-hop albums ever: The Wu-Tang Clan's Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) has been smashing fans and inspiring artists well outside of the hip-hop genre for 25 years.

Sometimes, music alone won't draw people in but an eye-catching video can do just the trick. Canadian band Said The Whale took that theory into consideration and 2,250 photos later they caught our attention. The whole video was created using stop-motion and zero special effects.
If heaven had a Porsche theme, it would probably look exactly this stunning collection of cars from the German manufacturer. Having a theme for any collection isn't unusual, but this secret stash of Porsche history — from vintage Speedsters, through nearly every version of the 911, to modern supercars like the Carrera GT and 918 Spyder — is. Presented in white, from the floors to the ceiling, to the cars themselves, guests must remove their shoes or wear white covers, and leave the cellphone at the door.
The One Love Machine is an internationally-known punk band that plays to crowds at tech events, conferences, and even TED talks. But no one in the band is actually alive — they're all the creation of inventor and avid DIY-er Kolja Kugler. Made completely out of found materials, Kulger's creations are totally autonomous and developed their sound completely on their own.
