The guy who made all of us love our childhood and look back with such nostalgia has passed away.
He was 95.
Stan Lee, the feisty writer, editor and publisher was responsible for such iconic characters as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther and the Fantastic Four — ’nuff said.
The legendary writer, editor and publisher of Marvel Comics became a real-life superhero to comic book lovers everywhere.
Lee, who began in the business in 1939 and created or co-created Black Panther, Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Mighty Thor, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil and Ant-Man, among countless other characters, died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, a source told The Hollywood Reporter.
Lee’s final few years were tumultuous.
After Joan, his wife of 69 years, died in July 2017, he sued executives at POW! Entertainment — a company he founded in 2001 to develop film, TV and video game properties — for $1 billion alleging fraud, then abruptly dropped the suit weeks later.
He also sued his ex-business manager and filed for a restraining order against a man who had been handling his affairs.
(Lee’s estate is estimated to be worth as much as $70 million.) And in June 2018, it was revealed that the Los Angeles Police Department had been investigating reports of elder abuse against him.
We have been in love with his cameos in the marvel movies and we will just miss him though we saw this coming, he was 95!
Rest in peace, Stan Lee.
