MARVEL Comics Writer Stan Lee Leaves Amazing Legacy Behind, Dies at 95

Stan Lee, the creator/co-creator of so many popular MARVEL Comics characters, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four, has died at the age of 95. 

No one can argue that Stan Lee’s presence in the comic book industry was a major influence in the growth and popularity of superhero comics at Marvel. He helped create or co-create so many characters, including iconic characters such as Spider-Man (with Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby), the Fantastic Four (with Jack Kirby), and the X-Men (with Jack Kirby), that his wikipedia page split the list of characters into two sections.

Despite his age, he didn’t shy away from the public eye, meeting and greeting fans as much as he could, when his health permitted.  If you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he had a cameo in almost every Marvel movie ever made, especially even in October’s Venom movie. (Unfortunately, he will be be appearing in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix film.)

He was well respected among cast, crew, writers, artists, and fans so much so that he was unofficially given the moniker of “Uncle Stan,” a term of endearment among many.

After the announcement was made, many of the celebrities involved in Marvel movies gave their respects.
