Stan Lee

Stan Lee, the American comic book writer who went on to become publisher of Marvel Comics, passed away at age 95.

“Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created.” said Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company. “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.”

Lee created or co-created Black Panther, Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Mighty Thor, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil and Ant-Man, among countless other characters.

He was also known for the cameos he regularly made in Marvel films, including the pre-Disney Marvel movies, the new Sony Spider-Man Universe, and, of course, the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Fans, colleagues and stars of his franchises took to Twitter to express their condolences.
