Marvel Comics Co-Creator Stan Lee Dead At 95 – Perez Hilton
Stan Lee, the man who co-created Marvel Comics and its many superheroes — including Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Hulk, X-Men, Black Panther, Daredevil, and The Avengers — has passed away at 95 years old.
According to reports, the legendary writer, editor and publisher was rushed from his Hollywood Hills home to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles early Monday morning. He passed away at the facility later that morning.
As we reported, Lee had been dealing with several illnesses over the last year, including a battle with pneumonia and vision loss. He had also been battling PR issues after multiple nurses who worked at his home accused Lee of sexual misconduct.
Still, most would consider Lee a real life superhero who inspired millions and left a billion dollar legacy behind him. Fans can find him in any Marvel movie, as he’s made cameo appearances in all of them.
