Stan Lee died on Monday (12), at the age of 95. According to the TMZ website, an ambulance went to Lee’s home in Hollywood, United States, on Monday morning. He was taken alive to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but he did not resist and died.
The cause of Stan Lee’s death was not revealed by the publication. However, it is known that the comic has suffered several health problems over the past few years – in addition, of course, to his old age.
Stan Lee made history in the comic book universe by working for Marvel since its founding in 1939. Lee was initially an office assistant at the company, which was run by Martin Goodman.
Over time, Lee became involved in editing comic books and created, either alone or alongside partners like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, iconic characters and teams like The Fantastic Four, Hulk, Spider-Man, X-Men, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Inhumans, Black Panther, Daredevil, Iron Man and Doctor Strange, among others.
