Stan Lee, the legendary writer, editor and publisher of Marvel Comics, has reportedly died at the age of 95.
Born on 28, 1922, in Manhattan, New York, Lee started his work in the comic book business in 1939. Lee created or co-created characters such as Black Panther, Spider-Man, X-Men, The Mighty Thor, Iron Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, and Ant-Man.
Like any Marvel employee, Lee had no rights to the characters he helped create and received no royalties, but he made countless appearances in the movies based on his characters. He’s also been credited as executive producer in most Marvel films since the 1990s.
Besides his work which will be remembered for generations, Lee is survived by his two children.
