He was suffering from age-related illness for the past few years and was admitted to the hospital due to an attack of pneumonia.

The reason why we connect with the characters of the Marvel Comics and Cinematic Universe is because Lee made them as relatable and realistic as possible. When anti-hero blockbuster "Venom" swept the Chinese box office last weekend, raking in US$110 million, the Chinese audience noticed the familiar face of Lee in a cameo appearance. "People who love comics will continue to read them, despite how popular the movie adaptations have become", added the icon, who is credited for bringing a sense of reality in the lives of superheroes with a complex emotional storyline.

"Stan Lee had the attitude of 'We're in New York City".

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has reacted to the death of Stan Lee, calling him a "mythological legend". My favourite character is the Iron Man, I was fascinated by him. So which Marvel superhero of his own creation did Lee identify with most? Of course, famed director Spike Lee has not passed away, the newspaper was just too careless to notice their error before going to print.

Larson, who makes her debut as Captain Marvel in the MCU next year, posted a photo of herself, drinking what looks like a cocktail, with the caption: "Thinking about Stan".

Appearing on TMZ Live to talk about her father's legacy, JC Lee said she had created a character called Dirt Man and that they were working on developing him together. An animated movie centred on Miles Morales, a half-black and half-Puerto Rican teen who inherits the Spider-Man suit, will drop next month.

Lee died on Monday at 95.

Foster, who started reading Marvel Comics in the 1960s, said even doing something as minor as including people of colour in the background was monumental. It moved quickly to develop Lee's brand and content in China, and last month (Oct. 1-3, 2018) held the first "Stan Lee (Shanghai) Comic Universe" convention at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition Center.
