Stan Lee: Marvel Comics Legend Reportedly Dead At 95

Stan Lee, the feisty writer, editor and publisher, who was responsible for such iconic characters as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther and the Fantastic Four, has reportedly died. He was 95.

Lee was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he later died, according to TMZ.

It is understood that he had suffered several illnesses over the last year or so including a bout of pneumonia and vision issues.

The family attorney also confirmed his death to the Associated Press

“An ambulance was rushed to his home Monday morning and he was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.”

Other multiple sources say Lee, who began in the business in 1939 and 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, died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

On his own and through his work with frequent artist-writer collaborators Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko (who died in July) and others, Lee catapulted Marvel from a tiny venture into the world’s No. 1 publisher of comic books and, later, a multimedia giant.

In 2009, The Walt Disney Co. bought Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion, and most of the top-grossing superhero films of all time — led by Avengers: Infinity War‘s $2.05 billion worldwide take earlier this year — have featured Marvel characters.
