Stan Lee, the legendary writer, editor and publisher of Marvel Comics, passed away on November 12, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. He was 95.
In collaboration with artists Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, Lee co-created iconic superhero characters like Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Daredevil.
