Stan Lee was writer and editor for Marvel Comics and co-created many of the company's most famous characters like The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man, The Hulk and the X-Men to name just a few. He started working for the company when he was 17 and it was called Timely Comics.
I am a big fan of his work, along with artist Jack Kirby, on The Fantastic Four in the 1960s.
In more recent times he became famous for his cameo appearances in the movies based on Marvel Comics characters.
Dead at 95. I'm pleased he's passed over, very depressed after the death of his wife last year, they'd been married 70 years, then those nasty accusations from his carer. Stan didn't deserve that. Some might not be familiar with him, but have probably read a Marvel comic or watched a Marvel film. RIP Stan
I'll never forget his introduction to every cartoon episode of Spiderman and The Hulk.
"Hi! This is Stan Lee!"
RIP Stan. He revitalized comics when they were becoming a bit too clean-cut and predictable.
"What was I thinking of, hitting him? Nothing. No, I know. I hate him! I hate his guts, I hate everything he stands for with his PACE and his plus and his statements of purpose and his smiling at the punters and his have a nice day! I mean when was the last time he ever nicked anybody, eh? A real villain! When was the last time he ever put himself on the line?"
RIP Stan Lee. One of the most well respected comic character designers where many companies are fighting over to make his creations big on the movie or television screen to bring them to life. The news still comes as a shock that he's gone because he looked alive in many of the appearances he was in.
