Stan Lee in 2017

Stan Lee, the comic book legend who helped create iconic superheros including X-Men, the Avengers and Spider-Man, has died at age 95 on Monday in Los Angeles. "I fondly remember reading his comic books and imagining Stan Lee's creations".

Lee is survived by his daughter and only child Joan Celia, known as 'J.C.'. Lee was also a World War II veteran, a screenwriter and married to his wife Joanie for 70 years. He's appeared in nearly every single Marvel Comics movie since Iron Man, and will nearly certainly continue to appear in movies in capacities in which his current form allows.

'So, Stan, typically we try to get him out - he doesn't love to fly - so we try to get him out for his cameos around the same time, ' Russo told the BBC via CBR.com. Apart from creating our favourite comics, he was also for his cameos in each Marvel movie, beginning with his portrayal of a hot dog vendor in 2000's "X-Men".

Born Stanley Lieber in 1922, Lee began his career in comics as a gofer/Guy Friday, thanks to his uncle Robbie Solomon.

Dozens of Marvel Comics movies, with almost all the major characters Lee created, were produced in the first decades of the 21st century, grossing more than $20 billion at theaters worldwide, according to box office analysts.

Spider-Man PS4 voice actor Yuri Lowenthal felt Stan himself summed up the situation best: Excelsior! "He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living".

When Marvel hit hard times and declared bankruptcy in 1998, the company voided Lee's contract.
