"Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created", said Disney CEO Bob Iger.
He added that the scale of Lee's imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart. While Marvel eventually grew beyond Lee, many credit his showmanship as a large reason for the company's initial growth and success. He said Lee's passing was not surprising, given the writer and publisher's age of 95, but it was hard all the same. Lee is said to have died at Cedars-Sinai.
Lee and Gene Colan co-created the first Captain Marvel that debuted in December 1967.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana also posted an on-set image of Lee, director James Gunn, and herself on-set, and called him an "inspiration and superhero to us all". McFarlane would know, having co-created the antihero Venom as the artist on Amazing Spider-Man in the late '80s. People respond to that.
