Known for his role in co-creating many of the iconic characters within the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee has passed away earlier today in Los Angeles. While the cause of death has not yet been revealed, he was taken to a local hospital due to a medical emergency prior to his passing.
Working hand in hand mainly with legendary Marvel’s artists Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, he helped with the creation of Marvel superheroes such as Avengers, Black Panther, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Iron-Man, Spider-Man, and Thor. While Stan technically no longer in Marvel’s creative process since years ago, he remained at the company as its Chairman Emeritus throughout his life.
Stan is also well loved for his cameos in Marvel Cinematic Universe movies although he has appeared in other non-Marvel properties including DC’s Teen Titans Go! To The Movies. Even though he is no longer around, Stan Lee’s cameo for the upcoming Avenger 4 which is scheduled for release in 2019 has been shot alongside his appearances in Avengers: Infinity War as well as Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Given his reach and legacy, he will definitely be missed by many fans out there.
