Stan Lee Dies at the Age of 95, Marvel Comics Legend

Stan Lee  was an American comic book writer, editor, producer, and publisher born in December 28, 1922(New York city). He was the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, and later its publisher and chairman, leading its expansion from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.

In collaboration with several artists, particularly Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko he co-created fictional characters including Spider-Man, the HulkDoctor Strange, the Fantastic FourDaredevilBlack Panther, the X-Men, and with his brother, co-writer Larry Lieber the characters Ant-ManIron Man, and Thor. In doing so, he pioneered a more complex approach to writing superheroes in the 1960s, and in the 1970s challenged the standards of the Comics Code Authority, indirectly leading to it updating its policies.

Following his retirement from Marvel, he remained a public figurehead for the company, and frequently made cameo appearances in movies based on Marvel characters. Meanwhile, he continued independent creative ventures into his 90s until his death in November 12, 2018.

Lee was inducted into the comic book industry’s Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995. He received a National Medal of Arts in 2008.

Lee, the face of comic book culture in the United States, died early Monday in Los Angeles, according to US entertainment outlets including The Hollywood Reporter. He had suffered a number of illnesses in recent years.

The characters created by Lee and the stories that he told have played a formative role in the lives of several generations of comic book fans, and will continue to do so for many more decades to come. The Marvel Comics legend will be sorely missed by his friends, family, and legions of devoted fans. “R.I.P Stan Lee”
