Stan Lee in November 2017

His death at 95 years old stunned the world Monday.

Comics writer Gerry Duggan said he was thankful for Lee's "many collaborations & [his] immeasurable kindness".

Stan Lee is survived by his daughter J. C. Lee, and we wish her and the rest of Lee's extended family and friends our deepest sympathies. Black Panther stars Letitia Wright and Winston Duke paid tribute to the Marvel boss, as well as Tom Holland. "I've been saying for years that the characters he created will outlive all of us making the movies, and enter the pantheon of myth which he read and was inspired by as a kid", said Feige. "That it was cool to want to be the good guy and that there was a price to pay for not standing up for the downtrodden, the oppressed, the little guy", Jim Lee said. We also join the mourning millions of people whose lives were forever changed by his words, his characters, his seemingly boundless enthusiasm for life, and his endless positivity that the world could, and will, be a better place for all. "Every time you open a Marvel comic, Stan will be there".

The YouTube channel SuperHeroesEvolution has compiled all of Lee's cameos, whether he was swinging around on a cartoon Spider-Man's back in 1995 or giving Tobey McGuire's live-action Peter Parker advice in 2007.

He teams up with the fuzzy yellow Pokemon , a "hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth", for the investigation. And before you ask, yes, this is real movie that will actually play in theaters on May 10th, 2019.

Ryan Reynolds, who played the Marvel character Deadpool in multiple films, was one of the first to tweet his condolences. "Thank you for contributing so much- and giving us all something to aspire to!" "Rest in power! #EXCELSIOR #StanLee #rip".

Speaking as someone who came to love Lee's often flawed yet inspiring characters via the MCU, thank you Stan Lee. Lee was inducted into the comic book industry's Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995. After the series ended, Stan phoned me.

"He helped to create worlds that were both fantastic and relatable at the same time, allowing more people to embrace superhero stories". Thank you for inspiring me to think and dream big.

Tributes from celebrities and fans poured in upon the news of Lee's death.
