Stan Lee, the amazing writer, editor and publisher of Marvel Comics, the real driving force behind the humongous comic universe, who gave birth to a number of our favorite comic book heroes, has passed away at the age of 95.
Stan Lee, started off in the business in 1939 and went on to co-create the legendary comic book characters we have grown to love. The face behind the creation of the Black Panther, Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil and Ant-Man amongst many others was primarily Lee. It was his knack for business and creativity that along with his team, Lee catapulted Marvel from a small publishing venture into the world’s No. 1 publisher of comic books and then a multi-million dollar multimedia giant.
According to reports, Lee passed away early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Celebrities and fans from around the world, have been mourning Stan Lee’s death.
Thank you Stan Lee for making people who feel different realize they are special.
