Stan Lee was an iconic legend in the comic world and will always be remembered, forever! Stan Lee at the age of 95 died early on Monday, November 12, 2018, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, as told by a family member to one Hollywood Reporter.
Kirk Schenck, an attorney for Lee's daughter, J.C. Lee, also confirmed his death.
It amazing to say the least, how on his own and through his collaborative works with Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and many others, Lee managed to change Marvel from a tiny venture into the world's largest comic book publisher and later into a multimedia giant. He will surly be missed, and everyone will remember him from his cameos in practically every marvel movie ever made!
How Marvel will move forward without his presence for their newer movies will be hard to place a finger on. Without Stan Lee in the picture, it will never truly be the same! However, that doesn't mean Marvel will ever stop creating such amazing masterpieces, just that a memorable part of those pieces will forever be missing.
We can only hope they do not go the way of Kentucky Fried Chicken and try to replace him with some look-alike actor, because that will only serve to destroy their reputation, that is for sure. No one can replace such an iconic legend, and no one should have to.
"Entertainment, really is important. Because if you can entertain someone, then you can help them to smile." - Says Stan Lee.
"I used to think what I did was not very important"
He told the Chicago Tribune in April 2014.
"People are building bridges and engaging in medical research, and here I was doing stories about fictional people who do extraordinary, crazy things and wear costumes. But I suppose I have come to realize that entertainment is not easily dismissed."
Lee's fame and influence as the face and figurehead of Marvel, even well into his nineties, remains considerable.
"I will never forget how Stan Lee has changed my life, how he has brought so much joy and entertainment into my life. Through his many comics, through the fantastic movies, and through his own charismatic smile." - Father Unknown
