The iconic co-creator of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, has passed away at age 95 following a bout with pneumonia and ongoing issues with his vision. He was rushed from his Hollywood Hill home via an ambulance into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he then passed away.

Alongside the visionary Jack Kirby, Lee went on to solidify a legacy with created characters such as The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, the X-Men, Iron Man and, of course, The Avengers.

Following the loss of his wife Joan last year, Lee began to battle disputes within his own company POW! Entertainment, suing the execs in charge for $ 1 billion USD for fraud before dropping the suit a week later. It was also rumored that the comic book legend was the victim of elderly abuse on behalf of his caretakers and close family.

Lee is survived by his daughter, J.C., whose stated ”My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man.”
