With Stan at its helm, Timely Comics morphed first into Atlas Comics and then into the name that would catapult it into legend and forever be synonymous with Stan Lee: Marvel Comics. In what may have been his most notable MCU cameo, Lee plays a FedEx deliveryman who drops off a package for Tony "Stank". He was 95 years old.

The news is confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, following up on earlier confirmation, via Lee's daughter, from TMZ.

Stars are speaking out following Stan Lee's death. After serving as the company's editor-in-chief, publisher and chairman, he eventually stepped away from the day-to-day operations to become its chairman emeritus.

As the top writer at Marvel Comics and later as its publisher, Lee was widely considered the architect of the contemporary comic book.

In the years since, Lee was responsible, along with Jack Kirby, for the creation of the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, the X-Men, and so much more. "His passing today marks a devastating and painful moment in time, but the legacy of Stan Lee, through his creative genius and his universes of characters, will continue to reach the world of true believers for generations to come". "Spider-Man" did even better, taking in more than $400 million in 2002.

In addition, Stan The Man was beloved by fans for his monthly column, "Stan's Soapbox", which appeared in the backs of comics; his love for alliterations and his many catchphrases (No Prize, 'Nuff Said, Excelsior!); and his unbridled joy in championing comics and connecting with kids.

In addition, Lee contributed his voice to a bunch of animated series, including The Simpsons, Ultimate Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk.

On Instagram, Josh Brolin, who plays Thanos in the Avengers films, said Lee ranked alongside authors Dr Seuss and Ray Bradbury.

The cause of Lee's death is not known, but earlier this year it was revealed that he was fighting a bout of pneumonia.

Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr said of Lee: "I owe it all to you".

To Stan "The Man" Lee, may he rest in peace.

"To me you can wrap all of Judaism up in one sentence, and that is, 'Do not do unto others.' All I tried to do in my stories was show that there's some innate goodness in the human condition".

Lee was also able to populate an entire fictional universe, ensure that the characters that inhabit it mostly get along and invited his young readers to spend a little time there.
