Marvel is mourning the loss of one of its brightest stars, Stan Lee. The iconic comic book creator, who inspired generations of fans with his marvel comics series, passed away on November 12, 2018 at the age of 95.
Stan Lee was the creative genius behind the Marvel Universe, an extraordinary universe that has delighted generations of fans across the world. He spent more than seven decades in the comic book business, beginning with a job as a gofer at the fledgling Marvel Comics in New York City in the late 1930s. Lee created some of the world’s most beloved superheroes, including Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Black Panther and many more. Lee also wrote or co-wrote many of the comic books in which the heroes made their first appearances.
