Marvel’s Legend Stan Lee Dies At 95; Celebrities Pay Tribute To Comic’s Legend Stan Lee

Stan Lee who gave us super-heroes like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Panther and X-Men has died in an LA hospital.

We woke up this morning to the sad news of Marvel’s genius Stan Lee, who created many superheroes have passed away. Stan Lee breathed his last on Monday, November 12 at age 95.

Stan Lee – The Legendary writer, editor and publisher of the most legendary comics characters including Spider-Man, X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther and the Fantastic Four also brought the superheroes to the silver screen. Marvel changed the way we see superheroes and will be forever remembered for his work by old and young generations.

Stan Lee died early morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.

Stan Lee began his career at the age of 17 as an assistant at Timely Comics, which eventually turned into Marvel Comics. He is credited for his experiment of bringing comic superhero’s to human superheroes.

Stan Lee received huge success with his first superhero movie “The Fantastic Four — Mister Fantastic”, which he teamed up with artist Jack Kirby. Following success, Stan Lee introduced whole lot of new superheros between 1961 and 1964 –  Spider-Man, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men and Daredevil which became world popular.

Though Marvel is synonymous to Stan Lee, but there is a debate and controversy around Stan Lee’s legacy over Marvel. It seems Stan Lee stole the credit and fortune of 60s’ comic artist Jack Kirby and other devotees who truly shaped the Marvel’s superheros.

Lee portrayed himself as public image and driving force for Marvel by attending interviews, press conference which sidelined the work and efforts of artists Kirby and Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko. That doesn’t mean Lee was not a creative person. His creativity was involved in Hollywood’s highest grossing films Iron Man and Captain America, including latest Marvel film, Infinity War, earning over $1.5bn (£1.1bn).

As Marvel characters are famous world over, Celebrities and fans across social media are paying tribute to the late comic legend Stan Lee
