A few months after the passing of Steve Ditko, co-creator of Marvel’s Spider-Man, the comic community has been dealt another big loss, as the legendary Stan Lee has left our world for another universe.

Damn Thanos and his snap.

A family attorney has confirmed that the comic wondermind, responsible for many of Marvel Comics’ top characters, died early Monday morning (12 Nov), age 95, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Stan Lee is survived by his daughter, J.C. Lee who described him as “the greatest, most decent man”.

Stan Lee has had a few health scares in recent years, including one earlier this year, although he did his best to stay close to fans through his recent cameos in Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Born Stanley Martin Lieber on 28 December 1922 to Jewish immigrants from Romania, he started as an assistant at Timely Comics (which later evolved to become Marvel Comics) in 1939. Together with his collaborators, including Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, Stan Lee redefined comic books and superheroes with his creations – Spider-Man, Hulk, Thor, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Doctor Strange and Black Panther.

Since news of his death, Marvel Comics has paid tribute to Stan Lee on its website featuring one of his famous quotes on how he thought of himself as a writer:
