It's the end of an era with the demise of legendary comic writer Stan Lee. It's the sign of a universally beloved figure that each tribute is wholly unique yet shares a common thread: Stan Lee lived his life well, and treated others with his generosity of spirit.
Lee was well-known for his cameoss, popping in a number of Marvel movies as well as slightly less obvious appearances in films like Princess Diaries 2 and Mall Rats. He is survived by his daughter Joan Celia "J. C." Lee. Now all of Hollywood is paying tribute to Stan "The Man", and you can check out all the tributes following the Stan Lee death below. As the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, he was responsible for the creation of more superheroes than you can shake a stick at, including Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Black Panther and Iron Man.
Grummett said he was five or six years old when he would "risk his hide" crossing Saskatoon's 22nd Street to buy an Avengers comic book, because Lee's characters were that dear to him. Lee had a hand in creating all your favorite comic-book characters.
Dozens of Marvel Comics movies, with almost all the major characters Lee created, were produced in the first decades of the 21st century, grossing more than $20 billion at theaters worldwide, according to box office analysts.
Born Stanley Lieber in 1922, Lee began his career in comics as a gofer/Guy Friday, thanks to his uncle Robbie Solomon. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives.
Chris Evans, the American actor known for his superhero roles as the Captain America and Human Torch, said on Twitter that there will never be another Stan Lee. He appeared as a juror and had no lines but it was the first time he was seen on-screen in a Marvel property. "They hadn't quite found the right formula with the Hulk but he's very good in [The Avengers]".
