The icon who co-created Spider-Man was 95 years old.
Stan Lee, the 95-year-old co-creator of Marvel Comics’ most popular heroes, has died. His daughter told TMZ that he was rushed from his Hollywood Hills home to the hospital, where he passed away on Monday.
Lee, along with his Marvel co-creator, Jack Kirby, had arguably a bigger impact on modern pop culture than any single person. He was behind some of the biggest names in comics, including Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and the Hulk. Under Lee, Marvel brought superheroes out of the realm of mere cartoonishness and merged comics with modern social issues, and the company’s intellectual property has reshaped the film industry in the past decade as Disney’s Marvel movies have become the looming juggernaut of the box office.
