Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee just took a moment to praise Tom Holland as Spider-Man.



Of course, Tom thanked Stan for his gracious compliments. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, on the other hand, may be crossing Stan off their Christmas card lists.



Just kidding -- it's not a competition.





Stan Lee shared some sweet and inspiring Spidey thoughts over the weekend, starting with praise for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Peter Parker/Spider-Man star.



British actor Tom Holland, now 21, made his MCU debut in "Captain America: Civil War" before starring in his first solo movie, "Spider-Man: Homecoming." He's now co-starring with half the planet -- emphasis on half -- in "Avengers: Infinity War."

Tom replied, calling the 95-year-old "bud":



Stan Lee wasn't done, and shared this Spider-Man note:





It's hard to picture a world before Spider-Man arrived in 1962. But yeah -- that must've been some pitch meeting. Then again, you could say that for most comic book characters.



"Avengers: Infinity War" gave Peter Parker an interesting little storyline, and we don't know what will happen next for him in "Avengers 4." However, we do know he has "Spider-Man: Homecoming 2" scheduled for July 2019.
