Publisher Marvel Comics and entertainment giant Walt Disney honored Lee as "superhero". "Stan Lee was as unusual as the characters he created," Disney's CEO Bob Iger quoted as Marvel said. Today it is almost impossible to find the place Marvel Universe, which Lee has not designated.
"Today we lost a real superhero," the Oscar Academy praised Twitter. "Stan Lee, thank you for everything." Even comedian Sets Rogens thanked Lee: he had given people who felt different, feeling that they were something special. "You were and will always be a superhero," wrote actress Jamie Lee Curtisa. The German rapper Kaspers wrote in English: "You, yourself, were the greatest superhero of all."
Lee created several popular cartoon characters with his Marvel edition in 1960, including Thor, Doctor Strange, The X-Men and Daredevil. He has until recently worked on relevant hero-focused fiction films and in many short guest performances. Also from his pen came the successful 2018 film Black Panther.
Lee's wife, Joana, died at the age of 93 years. A Romanian immigrant son was born in New York in 1922 as Stanley Martin Lieber. Already as a teenager, he became the creator. In 1939, he began his career as the publisher of Timely Comics, which later became Marvel.
