His death was confirmed by Kirk Schenck, an attorney for Lee’s daughter J.C. Lee at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles. Lee played an important role in the revolution of the comic book world in the 1960s and 1970s which was praised as the medium’s silver age.

If it hadn’t been for his leadership, outstanding talent and devotion, Marvel would not have built such a huge empire, an era of exploding sales, grown up a cultural legitimacy for the world.

During his tirelessly dedicated life, Lee lived life to the fullest with thousands of comic books.

Stan Lee’s superheroes undoubtedly occupy huge swaths on television and in movies, outstanding with pop culture landscape.

He transformed successfully the comic world into a familiar one with the human in basic personalities such as self-doubts, neuroses, sense of humor as well as awareness of society and trend. They were a far cry from when comparing with chief competitor DC Comics– the home of virtuous do-gooders as Batman and Superman.

During the process of humanizing the characters, Lee tried to give them real flesh-and-blood figures, not unreal superheroes just appearing in science-fiction, speaking to The Washington Post.

Think of Spider-Man, who wants to become a hero just to forget the failure of Peter Parker in daily life. Think of The Fantastic Four, those who never get along well with each other. Think of the Hulk, who was marked by self-loathing. And think of Iron Man, who has a weak heart.

The prolific author hoped to make the reader feel they were all friends, that they were sharing the only world. “The enticement of Stan Lee’s characters lies in the truth they first were characters and next superheroes”, executive producer of the “Men in Black” animated television series, Jeff Kline, told The Blade of Toledo, Ohio, in 1998.

“Captain America” actor Chris Evans paid his tribute on Twitter: “There will never be another Stan Lee. He provided both young and old for many decades with inspiration, confidence, comfort, strength, adventure, escape, friendship and joy. He brought into love and kindness and left a lasting mark on many lives. Excelsior!!”

Although Lee was often faulted for not acknowledging the contributions of his collaborators as well as well as denying rights and royalties to his artistic illustrators (especially Ditko and Kirby), his involvement in the success of many of Marvel’s best-known characters is unquestionable.

His recent projects include 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Black Panther'  and TV series as 'Daredevil' and  'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D'.

He was born Stanley Martin Lieber on Dec. 28, 1922, in Manhattan. He had a passion for reading and literature when he was a young boy. He graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School and aspired to be a writer.

From the top writer working for Marvel Comics and its publisher, Stan Lee is considered as the embodiment of Marvels arising as a common publishing house to peaking as a giant media group.

He won the National Medal of Arts in 2008.
