They are taking a time to reflect back on how the industry has changed since Lee started writing for the new line of Marvel Comics in 1961 to how things were in 1991.

Lieber, who later shortened his name to "Lee" as a writer, went on to be hired as an office assistant at Timely Comics in 1939 and became an interim editor for the company in the early 1940s. The former president of Marvel Comics died on Monday at the age of 95, leaving his fans all over the world grief-stricken and mourning.

The outlet reports he was in failing health over the past year.

"Thank you for everything, Stan".

And it's not until right now, letting the news of his passing sink in, that I realise the entire world I live in, the entire pop culture world we live in, all sprang forth from Stan Lee's brain (along with the mighty pens and pencils of masters like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko). For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy.

Lee has appeared in cameo roles in almost every Marvel movie - including as a bus driver in Avengers: Infinity War, a film that united numerous indelible characters he brought to life.

To say goodbye to the man who made all our superhero dreams come true, we've compiled a list of awesome, incredible, marvelous facts you probably didn't know about Stan Lee. Stan Lee. I nearly believed he is a super hero who will never leave us. Our thoughts are with his daughter, his family, and his millions of fans.

Known for co-creating popular Marvel superheroes such as Captain America, Spider Man, Fantastic Four, the Hulk, the X-Men and Black Panther, he often cameoed in Marvel films and TV series such as Thor, The Avengers, The Amazing Spiderman and Guardians of the Galaxy. "I feel that if you're able to entertain people, you're doing a good thing".

May his soul rest in peace.

Americans were familiar with superheroes before Lee, thanks to the 1938 launch of Superman by Detective Comics, the company that would become DC Comics, Marvel's archrival. He was a kind, generous and amusing man and it was an honour to meet him. My thoughts go out to his family at this hard time.

Hugh Jackman, who played X-Men's Wolverine, also paid tribute.

'The pleasure of reading a story and wondering what will come next for the hero is a pleasure that has lasted for centuries and, I think, will always be with us'. It could be felt on the big screen, where his characters were brought to life in a new format for new audience.

"Stan Lee created a universe where, if a character was beloved enough, they could never really die".
