Here's what happened to Stan Lee!

Legendary Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee has died

Stan Lee, the colourful Marvel Comics patriarch who helped usher in a new era of superhero storytelling, died at the age of 95, with a string of Hollywood personalities including Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Reynolds and Robert Downey Jr., paying their emotional tributes to the comic visionary.

According to reports, Lee's daughter announced his shocking passing Monday morning.

"I've actually met him once, and he basically influenced my whole life, so yeah, it's very sad", said Kocur, owner of Amazing Stories Comics.

Lee, a longtime writer for several Marvel series, was responsible for co-creating Spider-Man, the X-Men, Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk, among many others.

First came the Fantastic Four which was followed by Spider-Man, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men and Daredevil.

One of the most-identified characters Lee created is Spider-Man.

"Oh, no, I write kids stuff", Lee said, hoping that will shake them. He found Kirby's early sketches of Peter Parker to be too handsome and confident, so he turned to another artist, Steve Ditko, who came up with the character's unique look.

After Marvel Comics became a highly popular franchise, Stan Lee was promoted to editorial director of the company and publisher in 1972. There were rumors years ago that Feige took precautious to record a few cameos at once, which means they may have set Lee up on a green screen for a day and knocked out a long list of cameos.

Some of Lee's creations became symbols of social change - the inner turmoil of Spider-Man represented 60s America, for example, while the Black Panther and The Savage She-Hulk mirrored the travails of minorities and women. This is what people forget: Fantastic Four #1 predated Marvel officially donning the moniker Marvel Comics. Disney also spent $2.5 million for a 10 percent stake in Lee's POW!

His daughter J.C. Lee said that Stan Lee felt an obligation to his fans to keep creating.

Vir Das: Rest in peace Stan Lee You are Marvel's greatest hero. "The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart". But his wife urged him to give it one more shot and create the complex characters he wanted to, even if it led to his firing.

He was well known for his many cameos in Marvel films. In "Venom, " released last month, he played a dog walker in San Francisco.

If I got a superpower I wouldn't say, oh, I got to get a costume and put on a mask. I think when you're a writer, any character you write you have to have a feeling for or you won't be able to write it well. "Other men, they're excited they're going to go out and play golf".

At 17, Lee landed a job at a publishing company owned by his relative Martin Goodman, and began writing scripts for superhero and mystery comics. His first published work was as a text filler for Capt. America No. 3, published in 1941.

Stan Lee was a pioneering force in the superhero universe. That was Lee's way to guarantee the comic would sell, since superhero comics had fallen out of favour while horror comics rose in popularity. He returned in 1945 to Timely, which became Atlas Comics. (He later worked as Marvel's publisher and chairman, and eventually became the brand's undisputed figurehead).
