He was reportedly rushed to the Cedar-Sinai Medical Centre - not far from his Hollywood Hills home - on Monday morning, before being pronounced dead at the hospital.

The entire Marvel universe and its fans are in a state of shock and despair after Stan Lee, the former head of Marvel Comics and creator of numerous comic book heroes like Spider-Man and the Hulk dies aged 95.

Born Stanley Martin Lieber in 1922, Lee began his career in comics in 1939, at the age of 17, when he worked as an errand-runner for Timely Comics, the entity that would become Marvel Comics. "I couldn't do anything wrong", he told the Associated Press in 2006. While other iconic characters followed including The Inhumans, Silver Surfer, Black Panther (the first black superhero in mainstream comics) and The Falcon, Lee's main creative contributions in the early 60's formed the core of Marvel Comics.

Every device we tested internally also seems to have received the ability to do a manual Android backup. Right now, it appears that Google has rolled out the feature via a Google Play services update.

Many of his fans have been remembering their favourite Stan Lee cameos as a means of paying tribute to the late Marvel kingpin, reminding us not just how many films he appeared in, but also just how badass he was.

"Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created", said Disney CEO Bob Iger.

The Marvel legend's final years were filled with strife, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Lee was also involved in multiple business-related lawsuits, and the subject of a Los Angeles Police Department investigation into alleged elder abuse against him.
