We here at Movies.MajorMadness are saddened to hear the passing of the legend and national treasure, Stan Lee who has passed away at the age of ninety-five, the legend has left behind a legacy that will never be matched.
Stan Lee was an American comic-book writer, editor, film executive producer, actor, and publisher. He was formerly editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, and later its publisher and chairman before leaving the company to become its chairman emeritus, as well as a member of the editorial board. He was also known for making several cameo appearances in Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
In collaboration with several artists, including Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, he co-created fictional characters including Spider-Man, the Hulk, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Black Panther, the X-Men, and, with the addition of co-writer Larry Lieber, the characters Ant-Man, Iron Man and Thor. In addition, he challenged the comics industry’s censorship organization, the Comics Code Authority, indirectly leading to it updating its policies. Lee subsequently led the expansion of Marvel Comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.
Our hearts and thoughts are with his family at this most difficult time
Rest in Peace
1922 – 2018
