Stan Lee Dead at 95: Comic Book Legend Populated the Marvel Universe With Iron Man, Spider-Man and More Iconic Characters

The feisty writer, editor and publisher was responsible for such iconic characters as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther and the Fantastic Four — 'nuff said.

Where does one even begin when it comes to Stan Lee?  For starters, the movie business wouldn’t look like it does today without him. The writer couldn’t have envisioned when he first put ink to paper in 1939 that he’d be dreaming up some of the most iconic, recognizable characters in the universe—Marvel or otherwise—or that he’d become a superhero himself among comic book fans.

Lee died Monday. He was 95 and had been in frail health for some time, but still had writing, producing and cameo projects in the works, all stemming from his role as co-creator of Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Doctor Strange, Thor, the Silver Surfer and the X-Men, to name a few. His rep Dawn Miller confirmed his death to NBC News. READ MORE
