The whole comic book and entertainment industry have lost a great man. Marvel co-creator, writer, publisher, and editor Stan Lee has passed away on Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The great man of comic heroes was 95 years old.
He co-created a majority of Marvel Comics hit franchises like The Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Daredevil.
Stan Lee was born in 1922 and started working as a gofer for Timely Comics (the predecessor of Marvel Comics) in 1939. He was then named interim editor. He enlisted in the army in 1942 but returned to the company on 1972 as worked as editor then became a publisher.
The popularity of his works has paved way for some Japanese anime adaptations like Blade, Iron Man, X-Men, Wolverine, and Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers. Manga adaptations of Spider-Man and X-Men were also created, as well as a Spider-Man tokusatsu series.
Rest in Peace, good sir. Your legacy will live through your comic heroes.
