Comics legend Stan Lee dead at 95

Stan-Lee-Dead-Dies-Marvel Legendary Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee has died
| 15 November, 2018, 08:07

Lee died on Monday in Los Angeles. Stan Lee, the founder of Marvel Comics, has died after suffering from massive illness over the past few years in Los Angeles. He made his mark starting in the early 1960s by conjuring superheroes with troubled lives and temperamental personalities, a leap from the comic-book characters of the past. He co-created iconic fictional characters such as Spider-Man, X-Men, the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, and many more.

American Studies professor Thomas Doherty, an expert on Hollywood and comic books, teaches about Lee and the world of comics in his course "American Graphic: Comics, Graphic Novels, and Graphic Nonfiction". Over the course of his career, Lee is credited with creating and co-creating some of the world's most celebrated superheroes, from the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to Spiderman, Daredevil and the Hulk.

Liefeld jokes that being in comics is like being a rockstar - you know, at least at a comics convention - while Lee retells going to parties with his wife's coworkers.

Chris Evans, who played Captain America's Steve Rogers in six Marvel blockbuster films, said there would "never be another Stan Lee".

'For years, kids have been asking me what's the greatest superpower.

Last month in Shanghai, at the first Stan Lee Comic Universe event held in China, Marvel unveiled a brand-new Chinese superhero that Lee had modeled on Chinese pop star G.E.M. (Get Everybody Moving). Here are all of Lee's appearances in the Netflix-Marvel shows. He meets Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker on a street and says, "You know I guess one person can make a difference, nuff said".

"He felt an obligation to his fans to keep creating", his daughter J C Lee said in a statement to Reuters. A super hero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect.

He added that the scale of Lee's imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart. Many movies have been created and others are in the works using his famed heroes.


Dozens of Marvel Comics movies, with almost all the major characters Lee created, were produced in the first decades of the 21st century, grossing over $20bn at theatres worldwide, according to box office analysts.

In a 2002 interview, when asked whether he believed in god, Lee replied: "Well, let me put it this way". I think when you're a writer, any character you write you have to have a feeling for or you won't be able to write it well.

At 17, Lee landed a job at a publishing company owned by his relative Martin Goodman, and began writing scripts for superhero and mystery comics.

Stan Lee's trademark catchphrase was "Excelsior!" He returned in 1945 to Timely, which became Atlas Comics. It was Lee who came up with the idea of changing Atlas's name to Marvel.

The comic book legend - who was best known for formerly being the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics - tragically passed away on Monday morning. He continued his TV-and-movie efforts after Ronald Perelman bought Marvel in 1988 and had his title downgraded to chairman emeritus after Marvel sought bankruptcy protection in a legal battle that culminated in Carl Icahn becoming chairman in 1997.
