Marvel Comics Icon and Creative Legend Stan Lee Dead at 95

THR spoke with a source that said Lee died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Tributes poured in to Stan Lee - the co-creator of iconic superheroes including Spider-Man, The Hulk and the X-Men - following his death at age 95. With Bill Everett, he penned the first pages occupied by Daredevil, and with Steve Ditko, he introduced readers to Doctor Strange and Spider-Man.

Numerous current stars of Marvel superhero movies offered their respects to Lee, who hepled create some of the most famous superheroes of all time.

Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 co-director Joe Russo has confirmed that the late Stan Lee has already filmed his Avengers 4 cameo. This is the man without whom there would be no Marvel Cinematic Universe and without whom there would arguably not have been any current age of superhero films, which largely revolves around many of his own creations. Stan Lee's childhood was marked by the Great Depression.

Lee had suffered several illnesses in the past year.

David Stephens, an employee at local comic store Timemasters Inc., says throughout his career, Stan Lee established himself as an important figurehead for the world of comics.

Our condolences go out to Stan Lee's friends, family, and the billions of lives he has touched with his unforgettable comics.




The U.S. Army said it was grateful for Lee's service. We'll miss his grinning face in MCU cameos and his signature "Excelsior!", but his legacy lives on in the unbelievable creations he left behind.

The worlds of rock and metal have taken to social media to express their sadness, including Kiss star Gene Simmons who thanked Lee for inspiring him.

I don't think I'd want to be immortal.

Stan started Marvel with Jack Kirby in 1961 with The Fantastic Four.

He added: "The term "legend" seems to get thrown around a lot these days, but this man is most deserving of it". He is survived by his daughter J.C.

Tom Holland and more have paid tribute to the Marvel icon.

"Stan Lee was a pioneering force in the superhero universe", he tweeted.
