Stan Lee Dead At 95

Marvel creator Stan Lee has died he was 95

At the same time, it makes his death that much more devastating, particularly for those who were lucky enough to work closely with the Marvel legend.

Lee was inducted into the comic book industry's Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995.

If nerds have become cool, Stan Lee bears a huge chunk of the credit.

As Stan's roles and tenure with Timely Comics grew and evolved, so did the company itself. Lee worked his way up from an assistant to writing filler in comic books and eventually writing entire comics. The man was a living legend among superhero lovers and for good reason. Stan Lee was a pioneering force in the superhero universe.

"Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created". They wanted their superheroes to have egos and arguments, and to have worries and fears that everyone could relate to.

On Instagram, Josh Brolin, who plays Thanos in the Avengers films, said Lee ranked alongside authors Dr Seuss and Ray Bradbury. In the early 1980s, he moved to California to oversee the development of Marvel's TV and movie properties. From there, Stan would pop up in every Marvel movie - from Spider-Man (2002) to Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer to Dr. Strange (2016) to the three Marvel films that came out in 2018: Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Avengers: Infinity War. In 2005, Lee and Marvel settled their differences for $10 million.

U.S. Jobs Report Signals More Interest Rate Hikes Ahead
Economists had been expecting fewer new jobs after the slowest growth so far this year was recorded in the previous month. The report also cements expectations that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates at its December meeting.

"No one has had more of an impact on my career and everything we do at Marvel Studios than Stan Lee. I am deeply honored to have been a small part in the Stan Lee constellation".

Lee also filed a suit against his former company, Pow! He founded The Stan Lee Foundation in 2010 which focused on literacy, education, and the arts.

The US Army and a slew of Hollywood heavyweights gave loving tributes Monday to the "amazing" and "incredible" Stan Lee, who died at age 95. That outlet noted Lee had suffered several illnesses over the a year ago or so, including dealing with pneumonia.

Rest in peace, Stan Lee - he may be gone, but his legacy certainly won't be forgotten.

"He felt an obligation to his fans to keep creating", his daughter JC Lee told Reuters in a statement. Most recently, Marvel's Spider-Man developed by Insomniac and published by Sony, was released to critical acclaim.
