The official DC Twitter account paid tribute to Lee after the news broke. He sued the company in 2002 for royalties he said he was owed for the first "Spider-Man" movie. Readers would find a prose story in that issue, "Captain America Foils the Traitor's Revenge", sporting the byline of "Stan Lee".

Writer and director Edgar Wright said: "Thanks for inspiring so many of us to pick up a pen or pencil and put your dreams onto paper".

Wolverine star Hugh Jackman weighed in: "We've lost a creative genius".

Disney's Marvel Studios, which created a cinematic universe based on Lee's creations, has had 20 straight No. 1 openings at the box office. "I'm proud to have been a small part of his legacy and to have helped bring one of his characters to life". What a life and what a thing to have achieved.

"Damn. RIP Stan. Thanks for everything", said Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds.

A statement on Marvel.com reads: "Today, Marvel Comics and The Walt Disney Company pause and reflect with great sadness on the passing of Marvel Chairman Emeritus, Stan Lee".

Priyanka and Jonas got engaged earlier this year, after which the couple had a traditional Indian roka ceremony in Mumbai. Theirs will be an indo-western style wedding with traditions from both India and America reflected through the ceremony.

"You always kept kind of half an eye open for what he might be, where he might be", said Highfield. "And then I go back to my own world". "The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart".

While tributes poured in, perhaps punters were keen for something a little lighthearted as they remembered their comic book hero through the comedic chops of the video, that saw "Stan" spit lines such as: 'Step up to Lee and you get your butt kicked, your muppet Snuffleupagus stuff is bupkis'. I guess you could say that's doubly true for a legend such as Stan Lee, whose contributions to the superhero genre will probably outlive us all.

"He helped to create worlds that were both fantastic and relatable at the same time, allowing more people to embrace superhero stories. We'll be forever richer having him with us". They were filled with valuable lessons that normal people, not just superheroes could make a difference, and that we should stand up for those in need and not just for ourselves.

Previous year his hand and footprints were immortalized in cement in the forecourt of Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatre, alongside his fellow entertainment legends. Almost all Marvel movies pay homage to Lee's wit and creativity by including him in cameo appearances.

During his many years at the comic-book publishing house, Lee created characters including Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four.
