Marvel Legend Stan Lee Passes Away At 95

It's sad to announce that legendary Marvel comic book writer Stan Lee has passed away earlier today at the age of 95 years old.

Many people may know him better as the creator and mastermind for many of Marvel's most popular superheroes.

Marvel and Disney released a statement of his passing over on the official Marvel website. You can read the statement from Disney CEO, Bob Iger, down below.

"Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created. A super hero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect. The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart."

Some of the characters that Stan Lee helped to create over the years included the likes of the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, the X-Men and many more.

He did not create these characters by himself though because he partnered up with lot of talented artists too. He worked with Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Don Heck, Gene Colan and John Romita over the years.

Modern day comic book fans will remember him as the old man that features in all of the Marvel movie cameos.

He pretty much was added in every MCU movie, and his last appearance will be seen in Avengers 4 which comes out next year.

While it's sad to see Stan Lee pass away today, his legacy will live on forever thanks to all of the characters he created. We give our condolences to his family and friends that have been affected with his passing.
