Marvel co-creator Stan Lee has died

Avengers Joss Whedon Marvel Stan Lee Marvel’s Avengers director Joss Whedon has paid a heartfelt tribute to Stan Lee following the iconic creator’s passing earlier today

"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.

So, in celebration of Lee's life, let's take a look at just eight of the awesome ways he changed comics - and comics readers - forever. So it's very true that the world lost a legend yesterday.

"I felt someday I'd write the "Great American Novel" and I didn't want to use my real name on these silly little comics", Lee once said, explaining why he had forsaken his given name, Stanley Lieber. You gave us characters that continue to stand the test of time and evolve with our consciousness.

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.

The Fantastic Four, for example, had heroes that were ugly, dangerous, and monstrous. They fought amongst each other.

Above and below you're reading a list of the most notable comic book heroes / characters Stan Lee created.

In life, Stan Lee maintained a connection to the characters he created with Marvel.

We were already expecting the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War to be emotional, and with Stan Lee's (perhaps) final film appearance included, the movie will be touching on a whole other level. These, too, will remain part of his legacy.
