Stan lee, the icon, the legend, the famed comic book writer passed away on November 12th at Cedar’s Sinai Medical Center at the age of 95. Lee created many superheroes throughout his life, including well known ones such as Iron Man, Black Panther, the X-Men, Spider-Man and many more.

Lee began in the comic book business in 1939 and continued this line of work up until his death. His first written work that was published was in Captain America Comics #3 in 1941 where Lee was providing filler text in this story that was written by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.

Later on in the 60’s is when Lee began to create iconic characters such as the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, the Hulk, and the X-Men. These characters  are still seen in comics today, but also on the big screen now for all the world to see.

He was also well known because of his small cameos in movies and television shows, particularly Marvel ones. Lee’s very first cameo was in “The Trial of the Incredible Hulk” in 1989 which began his famous cameos that Marvel fans looks  forward to seeing whenever a new Marvel movie is released in cinemas. His last cameos may be in Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 since those are the last films that have confirmed his cameo was filmed.

Stan Lee was a real life superhero and an inspiration to many people around the world. He changed people’s lives through his stories and the relatable characters he had created. Although he has passed away, Stan will always live on in his iconic characters that are now not only on the big screen, but also in the hearts of many fans that cherish these characters. As Stan Lee would say, “Excelsior!”
