The beloved Co-Creator of Marvel, Stan Lee, unfortunately, passed at the age of 95 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on November 12th after a battle with pneumonia. Lee was best known for the creation of the comic book heroes such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, The Fantastic Four, Doctor Strange, and many others.

He was rushed to the hospital earlier that day because of a medical emergency. This was not the first time Lee had been rushed to the hospital in the same year. It had been revealed earlier this year he was battling pneumonia.

Roy Thomas, Lee’s successor of being editor-in-chief in Marvel, said “I think he was ready to go. But he was still talking about doing more cameos. As long as he had the energy for it and didn’t have to travel, Stan was always up to do some more cameos. He got a kick out of those more than anything else.”

Lee was one of those people who were full of goodness and had a wholesome heart. He was always ready to do things and make the world a better place. Without him, we would not have the legendary Spider-Man or even the 10-year standing Marvel Cinematic Universe. You really have to think and put into perspective what the world would be like without someone like him. There are very few people who can put a mark on the world as Stan Lee did.

We see from the community very positive and kind words towards his unfortunate passing. Telsa creator, Elon Musk said this in a tweet: “ Rest in peace, Stan Lee. The many worlds of imagination & delight you created for humanity will last forever. ” Jeremy Renner, also known as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, said this on Twitter: “RIP Stan Lee! You’re a legend my friend”

He has truly left a mark on this world with all the joy he brought to everyone and how he did it. At least now he is finally at peace.
