One of my idols the ‘marvelous ‘Stan Lee has passed. He has been the example of genius, passion, and the pioneering spirit. He had so much influence on generations until it is mythical. He was like that mentor from afar I admired so much. Thank you for all you have done to help us all dream bigger, look farther outside of the box, and look inward inside our hearts. Rest In Power legend.
Stan Lee, the man responsible for much of the Marvel Universe, has died … Stan’s daughter tells TMZ.
We’re told an ambulance rushed to Lee’s Hollywood Hills home early Monday morning and he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. We’re told that’s where he died.
Lee had suffered several illnesses over the last year or so — he had a bout of pneumonia and vision issues.
Stan started Marvel with Jack Kirby in 1961 with The Fantastic Four. He went on to create Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man and The Avengers.
Stan made cameo appearances in all of the Marvel movies.
