New Delhi: The maker of dreams and best imaginative realities which have formed childhoods, the Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95. According to reports, Lee breathed his last at a Los Angeles hospital on Monday where he was taken for a medical emergency. Lee, famously known as the creator of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, Fantastic Four, Avengers and many others, will be remembered for his contributions to the world of fiction and comics.
Originally ‘Stanley Martin Lieber,’ he used ‘Stan Lee’ as his pen name and then later had it legally changed. Lee’s characters were always living in a universe that all of us reside in. His characters had character flaws like anyone and this made them even more popular and relatable, unlike unrealistic perfect superheroes.
The comic legend made subtle cameos in most of his comic adaptations adding to the joy of the cinematic experience. He was even awarded the National Medals of Arts by President George W Bush in 2008.
