Stan Lee, the mastermind behind Marvel Comics, passes away at 95

Stan Lee, the arch superhero of comic books, is dead at 95

The comic book legend, who famously created numerous Marvel Universe's beloved superheroes, died on Monday at 95 years old.

Stan Lee may no longer be bringing superheroes to life.

Below is a look at all the films (which is nearly all of Marvel's) where he made a cameo appearance. He is survived by his daughter Joan Celia "J. C." Lee. Lee was also a World War II veteran, a screenwriter and married to his wife Joanie for 70 years. Lee is credited with creating the "Marvel Method" of writing comics where he would write a summary of the story and let the artist draw the full issue from that rather than providing them with a fully scripted, beat-by-beat breakdown.

Avengers 4 co-director Joe Russo confirmed in an interview with the BBC (via ComicBook.com) that Stan Lee had filmed his cameo for the film, saying, "So, we try to get him out for his cameos around the same time".

Legend is a word that is thrown out a lot as it relates to people of a certain status within the pop culture landscape, but it's safe to say that Stan Lee truly fit that bill as good as anyone ever will. The exact cause of death is yet to be confirmed, but the 95-year-old was known to have suffered several illnesses over the last few months, including pneumonia.

The man born Stanley Lieber published his first comic book under the pseudonym Stan Lee in 1941-Captain America Comics #3-and he never looked back. He appeared as a juror and had no lines but it was the first time he was seen on-screen in a Marvel property. "So grateful to have met the guy, and told him how thankful I was for his work", tweeted Australian filmmaker James Wan. "He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living".

The actor took to Twitter to slam the celebrities, from Chris Evans to Millie Bobby Brown, who shared a selfie alongside Lee.

He was the creator of dozens of comics-book heroes, including Spider-Man, X-Men, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four and Black Panther.
