  • Stan Lee Is Dead: Fans, Collaborators Pay Tribute

Fewer people have made a bigger impact on contemporary pop culture as Stan Lee, and it's with a heavy heart that today we read the news (reported by TMZ) that the Marvel Comics creator has passed away aged 95.

THR spoke with a source that said Lee died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Spider-Man was goaded into superhero work by his alter ego, Peter Parker, who suffered from unrequited crushes, money problems and dandruff.

He spent more than three-quarters of a century working in the comic book business, for which he was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 1994 and Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995, and received a National Medal of Arts in 2008. He went on to create Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man and The Avengers. Animated series and, of course, blockbuster films woud follow in the ensuing decades, and Marvel grew to become a multimedia giant, with Lee as its fearless, beloved leader.

Lee scripted most of Marvel's superhero comics himself during the '60s, including the Avengers and the X-Men, two of the most enduring.
