The World Mourns as Legendary Marvel Comics’ Creator Stan Lee Dies at 95

The world-famous writer and publisher was responsible for such iconic characters as Spider-Man, X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther and The Fantastic Four.

TMZ reported, citing Stan Lee’s daughter, that the legendary co-creator of Marvel Comics has died at the age of 95.

The cause of his death has not yet been reported, while TMZ said that “an ambulance rushed to Lee’s Hollywood Hills home early Monday morning and he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. We’re told that’s where he died.”
