Marvel Legend Stan Lee Dead at 95

Lee passed away November 12, 2018, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. While other iconic characters followed including The Inhumans, Silver Surfer, Black Panther (the first black superhero in mainstream comics) and The Falcon, Lee's main creative contributions in the early 60's formed the core of Marvel Comics.

Perhaps intuitively grasping that a letter writer hopes to have his affections returned, Lee began answering the missives in the comics, building out a whole new regular feature for readers to enjoy. "I thanked him for being a visionary, not just creatively, but being a visionary in bringing Marvel to Hollywood, knowing how well they would be served by TV and film".

He had help in designing the superheroes but he took full ownership of promoting them.

Director Guillermo del Toro tweeted that Bleak House, his museum of horror movie memorabilia, was also in the path of the flames. A fire official said the blaze in northern California almost quadrupled in size overnight.

Lee is best known for his co-creation of characters like Spider Man, the Hulk, Doctor Strange, Iran Man, Thor and others. It was in 1961 that Lee, alongside fellow comic book creator Jack Kirby, introduced the first of many superheroes they would create, The Fantastic Four.

Lee received a National Medal of Arts in 2008. The Marvel Universe he created crossed from page to screen in a series of TV and movie adaptations and changed the face of popular culture.

Millions responded to the unlikely mix of realistic fantasy, and many of his characters, including Spider-Man, the Hulk and X-Men went on to become stars of blockbuster films.

Lee, who was born Stanley Martin Leiber in 1922, grew up in the Bronx during the Great Depression.

Lee embraced Marvel going Hollywood, which got his beloved characters to an even bigger audience.

Lee soon earned writing duties and promotions. Lee's wife, Joan Boocock Lee, died in 2017 after a stroke. Another daughter, Jan, died in infancy.
