Stan Lee, Legendary Marvel Comic Creator Dies At 95

||| @BossLogic | Twitter |||

The man who made it a point to appear in as many Marvel superhero films he could whether it was as an extra in the background or as a small character with a one-liner, has finally passed away at the age of 95. Stan Lee was born December 28, 1922, and made his career as an American comic-book writer, editor, and publisher. Lee also held the esteemed position of editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics and had amassed a fortune for himself through decades of influential work in the comics and film industry.

Stan Lee is largely considered the father of the contemporary comic book and is credited with nearly single-handedly reviving the comics industry in the 1960s by offering the costumes and action heroes young readers wanted. He was even the mind behind Spider-Man, the Hulk, and X-Men to name a few. In 2008, Lee won the National Medal of Arts.

Sadly, the final years of his life were embroiled in controversy after his wife passed and people began trying to control the increasingly senile Lee. There were lawsuits over who controlled Lee's assets and whether his own caretakers were stealing from him.
