The comic book universe lost a great man today – a legend.
A barrage of tweets, news articles and tributes flooded the internet Monday morning offering their respects for the loss of Marvel co-founder Stan Lee.
An ambulance rushed to Lee’s Hollywood Hills home early Monday morning and he was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center shortly after, according to reports.
Lee had been struggling with illness for much of the past year and had challenges with his vision and pneumonia, according to reports.
Stan is largely known for creating Marvel Comics with co-founder Jack Kirby in 1961. Lee is responsible for creating many of Marvel’s signature superheroes including Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, The X-Men, and The Avengers.
While his relationship with the Marvel Cinematic Universe wasn’t always perfect (Lee sued Marvel in 2002 over royalties he was owed for the first Spider-Man movie), Lee had made cameos in every Marvel movie thus far.
Lee’s wife of 69 years passed away in 2017. He is survived by his daughter J.C. Lee.
Stan Lee was 95.
Everyone at MetaHuman Entertainment is grateful to have been influenced by Lee’s genius and we are saddened by the news. RIP.
