Marvel Legend Stan Lee Dead at 95

Marvel creator Stan Lee has died he was 95

Lee passed away November 12, 2018, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.

In 2016, he threw out the first pitch before a Texas Rangers-Seattle Mariners game and he put a little heat on it at 93 years old.

Stan Lee, a legend in the comic book world, has died at the age of 95, reports say.

Of all the superheroes he created, Lee said he could identify with Iron Man the most, but loved all of them as his own children.

Meanwhile, Bollywood celebrities also mourned Stan Lee with heart-wrenching posts on social media.

The cause of Lee's death is not known, but earlier this year it was revealed that he was fighting a bout of pneumonia.

Samuel L. Jackson, who features as Nick Fury in the MCU films, wrote: "Thank you Stan Lee for the escape from this world and great joy inhabiting the ones you created!"

An avid comic fan, Lee got his start at a company called Timely Productions in 1939, where he would do menial jobs like refill ink wells and fetch lunch for the staff.

Kat Dennings, who stars in the Thor series, also tweeted: "Stan Lee". We leave you this very sweet clip of the moment on this very sad day.

Tom Holland and more have paid tribute to the Marvel icon.

Founding Marvel Comics in 1961 with Jack Kirby with the creation of The Fantastic Four, Lee went on to create Spider-Man Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, and The Avengers, among others.

Despite this, the news has hit the entertainment industry and his fans hard, with many of them - famous or otherwise - already expressing their condolences and appreciation online for a man who touched so many lives.

Writer and director Edgar Wright said: "Thanks for inspiring so many of us to pick up a pen or pencil and put your dreams onto paper".

"A champion of promoting literacy and the arts, Lee founded the Stan Lee Foundation in 2010 with the goal of supporting, "...equal access to literacy and education".
