Lee died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, with reports suggesting he had been suffering from pneumonia.

Lee made cameo appearances in all of the Marvel movies.

Lee created Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man and The Avengers with Marvel. Lee. His wife of 70 years, Joan B. Lee, who could be seen making a cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016 along with her husband, died in July 2017.

It was during this period that Lee started his work with Jack Kirby, who had co-created Captain America two decades earlier. In 1972, Lee stopped writing monthly comic books to become Marvel's figurehead and public face.

In 1961 Lee's boss saw a rival publisher's success with caped crusaders and told Lee to dream up a superhero team.

He hit his stride in the 1960s when he brought the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man and numerous others to life.

Tom Holland and more have paid tribute to the Marvel icon.

Oosthuizen, who began the day five behind Garcia, made the quick start he needed with three birdies in the first four holes. I had some bad bounces and lip-outs, the greens are faster, the pins are still very tucked and the wind keeps swirling.

By that point, Lee had long since become more of a company figurehead rather than a writer and editor in the day-to-day trenches.

Dozens of Marvel Comics movies, with almost all the major characters Lee created, were produced in the first decades of the 21st century, grossing over $20 billion at theaters worldwide, according to box office analysts.

"How many millions of us are indebted to this guy, none more so than me", Spider-Man's Tom Holland wrote. "So from now on, I want you to remember that", he said in a 2012 YouTube video.

Lee and Kirby decided that it was time to make a new kind of superhero.

Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee has died, his family said. With Bill Everett, he penned the first pages occupied by Daredevil, and with Steve Ditko, he introduced readers to Doctor Strange and Spider-Man. Life got the best of Stan Lee very few times.

"The unbelievable thing to be thankful for is that Stan got to see it all happen", Feige said of the massive success his Disney-owned unit has seen since the Marvel Cinematic Universe was reborn in 2008 with Robert Downey Jr.'s "Iron Man". Lawsuits, court fights and an elder abuse investigation all emerged in the fight over who spoke for the elderly Lee.

Lee is survived by his daughter, J.C.
