Stan Lee died

The man who created the X-Men, the Avengers and Black Panther, Stan Lee died at the age of 95.

He was an American comic-book writer, editor, film executive producer, actor, and publisher. He was formerly editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, and later its publisher and chairman before leaving the company to become its chairman emeritus, as well as a member of the editorial board.

The 95-year-old was taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday after suffering a medical emergency and was declared dead shortly afterwards.

Stan Lee considered the comic-book medium an art form and he was prolific: By some accounts, he came up with a new comic book every day for 10 years.

He hit his stride in the 1960s when he brought the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man and numerous others to life.

It was like there was something in the air. I couldn’t do anything wrong

he recalled.

I used to think what I did was not very important

he told the Chicago Tribune in April 2014.

People are building bridges and engaging in medical research, and here I was doing stories about fictional people who do extraordinary, crazy things and wear costumes. But I suppose I have come to realize that entertainment is not easily dismissed.

I wrote so many I don’t even know. I wrote either hundreds or thousands of them

he told AP in 2006.

Rest in peace LEGEND.
