Marvel Comics’ iconic writer, editor, and publisher Stan Lee, who introduced this generation’s superheroes died at the age of 95. The news was confirmed by Kirk Schenck, attorney of Lee’s daughter, that an ambulance was sent to his house in California’s Hollywood Hills on Monday morning. Lee later died at the nearby Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Lee co-created multiple numbers of characters such as; the Fantastic Four, Black Panther, Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Mighty Thor, Iron Man, , the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, Ant-Man, and other countless characters. Though there are limited characters that he didn’t have involvement, perhaps his greatest contribution is not the legion of superheroes existing in the Marvel Universe but the legacy of how he broke down the boundaries between creators, actors, and fans in different Marvel pages.
Stan Lee did just not serve as an inspiration to the fans of Marvel but also brought motivation to the various artists of the industry on how to love their own craft.
