In Memoriam - Stan Lee, 1922-2018

 

 

Stan Lee has passed away at the age of 95.  Writer, editor, and publisher at Marvel Comics, he was the driving force behind comic book heroes Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Panther, the X-Men, and many more.  He worked to uncensor comics in the 1970s, introducing serious topics for adults as well as kids.  In his later years, he became well-known for making cameos in Marvel Comics superhero movies.

 

RIP Stan Lee.
