Legendary Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee dies at 95

Stan LeeThe Marvel Universe won't be the same without Stan Lee, who died on Monday at the age of 95. He helped create many comic book superheroes such as Spider-Man, X-Men, Thor, Iron Man and Black Panther.

His daughter, J.C., told TMZ.com that an ambulance transported her father to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday morning, where he later died.

She added: "He felt an obligation to his fans to keep creating. He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living. His family loved him and his fans loved him. He was irreplaceable. My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man."

Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger said in a statement: “Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created. A superhero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain and to connect. The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart."

Lee wrote and edited most of Marvel's series and newspaper strips. He is also known for his signature phrase "Excelsior!" which was always printed at the end of his monthly comics column, "Stan's Soapbox."

Joan, his wife of 69 years, passed away in July 2017. Tributes (see a selection posted below) have been pouring in from celebrities. ~Marriska Fernandes

    All of Stan Lee's amazing super heroes should make an appearance at his funeral or some event to commemorate his fabulous creativity. We will miss him!! He was as important as his characters.

    The title of the story which is the basis for "The Day The Earth Stood Still" movies is one that fits for the passing of Stan Lee : FAREWELL TO THE MASTER
