Comic book writer, editor, and pop culture icon Stan “The Man” Lee has passed away at the age of 95.
Co-creator of such Marvel Comics iconic characters as the Black Panther, Spider Man, the X-Men, and Thor, Lee was the face of the comic book industry.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Lee died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles” a family representative told the publication.
Further reported by the Hollywood Reporter, “His way of doing things at Marvel was to brainstorm a story with an artist, then write a synopsis. After the artist drew the story panels, Lee filled in the word balloons and captions. The process became known as “The Marvel Method.”
“Lee collaborated with artist-writer Kirby on the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Silver Surfer and X-Men. With artist-writer Ditko he created Spider-Man and the surgeon Doctor Strange, and with artist Bill Everett came up with the blind superhero Daredevil.”
Rest in Power Mr. Lee.
