Los Angeles, Ca.- It’s a sad sad day, the man who co-created Marvel Comics, has died … Stan’s daughter tells TMZ.
According to TMZ reports, an ambulance rushed to Lee’s Hollywood Hills home early Monday morning and he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Where he was pronounced dead.
Lee had suffered several illnesses over the last year or so – Including pneumonia, which led to the cancelation of a number of appearances.
Lee and Jack Kirby started Marvel in 1961 with The Fantastic Four.
He later would go on to create a number of household name superhero’s including Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man and The Avengers.
Lee was known for making cameo appearances in all of the Marvel movies.
Stan had been in the media recently for a home invasion and the on-going financial escapades of some bad doers that seem fit the story line of one of Lee’s many comic book stories, including using his blood as merchandise.
Lee is survived by his daughter, J.C.
“My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man.”
We can honestly say there has never been one person to have such a huge influence on so many generations.
All I thought about when I wrote my stories was, “I hope that these comic books would sell so I can keep my job and continue to pay the rent.” Never in a million years could I have imagined that it would turn into what it has evolved into nowadays. Never. – Stan Lee
You will be missed but not forgotten. Your superhero powers will be remembered and live on forever!
