Stan Lee, the comic book legend, has died at age 95, according to The Associated Press.
A family attorney confirmed the death.
Lee was the longtime editor and publisher of Marvel Comics. He helped create Black Panther, Iron Man, the X-Men and countless other Marvel characters in comic books and on the big screen.
Lee also championed close collaboration between comic book writers and artists. The collaborative approach was known as the “Marvel Method.”
In 2010, he told CNN, “All of my life in comics I have worked with artists, so I’ve collaborated with them. I would write down the original story, they would draw it and then I would edit it and do the art direction. So everything I’ve done has always been a collaboration.”
He has had cameos in many of the films based on his comics.
