Ben Potter’s accident: How did the comic story YouTuber die?

Potter had over a million subscribers on YouTube and created comic book audio dramas on his Comicstorian account, often discussing the Marvel and DC universes.

“To many of you, he was a comic storyteller who told stories from many different media. To his loved ones, he was one of the best and most supportive people you could wish for,” Nathalie tweeted late Monday.

“As a husband, son, brother, friend, or even just a stranger, Ben was loving and genuine. He was someone who listened and made time for his loved ones. He did his best to make everyone laugh and make sure they were OK.

“He was our rock and always reassured his loved ones when they needed it.”

Other than that it was an “unfortunate accident,” no further details about Potter’s death are currently available.

Potter uploaded nearly 4,000 YouTube videos in total and published his final post – titled “Why DC’s Reboots Beat Marvel” – just one day before his death.

Nathalie said her husband was “my world” and added:

“I need time for friends and family. I have so many things to sort out, but first I need to grieve. I ask that you respect my privacy and that of everyone else. Right now, my priority is to preserve everything he has built and I have no plans beyond that.”

“His channel was one of his greatest achievements, and while we all need time to mourn his passing, I know he would not have wanted it to end this way.”

Potter started his YouTube career over a decade ago and gained many famous fans along the way.

For example, O’Shea Jackson Jr., the son of Ice Cube and Kimberly Woodruff, was one of those who paid their last respects to Potter after learning of his death.

“Prayers for his loved ones. Long live Ben Potter,” Jackson Jr. wrote online. “Be good everyone. Hold your loved ones tight. Hope to see you soon.”

Meanwhile, Nathalie assured her followers that her husband’s channel would remain active.

“The team and I want to keep that going. To honor him by continuing to tell great stories about great people and keep the memory of our own superhero alive,” she concluded. “We supported each other in everything we wanted to do and I’m not going to stop now.”

May Ben Potter rest in peace.
