Comic book hero Stan Lee dead at 95

Stan Lee and his then-manager Keya Morgan attend the Avengers Infinity War World Premiere in 2018

THR spoke with a source that said Lee died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Again, he was 95 and had struggled with various illnesses over the past year, including pneumonia and issues with his vision. He's survived by his daughter Joan Celia "J. C." Lee. He was born in 1922 in Manhattan, New York City, and at the age of 17 became an assistant at Timely Comics, which would eventually evolve into Marvel Comics.

Marvel Comics and The Walt Disney Company released a statement in the wake of the news, asking fans to join them in remembering "the creator, voice and champion of Marvel".

Lee, who founded Marvel Comics with Jack Kirby in 1961, helped create some of the comic world's most iconic superheroes. But perhaps the character he is most known for was Spider-Man, who has come to life in multiple film iterations and has shared the screen with other characters he created. Lee's first superhero co-creation was the Destroyer in Mystic Comics, but it wasn't the last.

While giving us such wonderful characters and worlds, Lee was also a big believer in giving back.

Trump's advisers worried about Mueller's next steps
Whitaker did, however, believe that Sessions had no choice but to recuse himself from the matter, the person said. Whitaker has spoken publicly about ways the Mueller investigation could be impeded.

Early on, Stan Lee hoped to be a great American author, with designs on writing novels.

"You have to have a character, whether it's a superhero or not, that people care about", Lee said, adding that people also need to understand and relate to characters, whether heroes or villains - something modern writers too often forgot. The pair started with The Fantastic Four, and they went on to create Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man, and The Avengers. Truth be told, whenever someone such as Stan provides dynamite material to Marvel, that forces DC to up its game as well.

"So, Stan, typically we try to get him out - he doesn't love to fly - so we try to get him out for his cameos around the same time", Russo stated.
