Stan Lee, the Co-Creator of the Marvel Universe, Dead at 95

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

According to reports earlier today, Stanley Martin Lieber aka Stan the Man aka Stan Lee died at the age of 95 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, today after being rushed there in a medical emergency earlier in the day.

Lee who was the co-creator of the Marvel Universe featuring many characters such as Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, The Hulk and The Fantastic Four, just to name a few helped youth culture of the 1960s during the Civil Rights Movement as the X-Men were used as an allegory for our troubling racial tensions.

“There aren’t enough hyperboles left in the Marvel Universe to cover the tremendous titan who was Stan Lee. His wondrous wit, his crafty creativeness, and his spectacular showmanship were all hallmarks of his genius. In the words of Benjamin J. Grimm, ‘I gotta go now, I think I got somethin’ in my eye,'” said Jeph Loeb, Executive VP, Head of Television, Marvel Entertainment.

What was once considered a fringe medium was brought to live by the marketing maneuvering of the New York native. No one was at great at marketing comics the way Lee was able to give excitement and life to his creations. He went so far as to create the Marvel Bullpen, a term Lee used for Marvel’s creative teams, giving fans a chance to get to know the creators and to answer fan letters or concerns regarding the comic book industry, something revolutionary for its time.

“Stan Lee’s contributions to Marvel, a company he helped forge into a household name, will forever live on and we will continue to celebrate the imaginative characters he helped create and the fantastic universe he helped build. My thoughts and prayers go out to his daughter and brother at this time,” Ike Perlmutter, Chairman of Marvel Entertainment.

Lee’s wife of 69 years, Joan passed away on July 6, 2017. They are survived by one daughter, Joan Celia “J. C.” Lee, who was born in 1950, according to sources.

Stan Lee had a tremendous impact on the comic book medium, animated series and film franchises over the last 75 year and will greatly be missed by his fans, friends and loved ones.

“To so many of us he was a father figure, a mentor, a best friend. Stan let us into the pages of his comics and into his world. He told us all about himself, warts and all. He made us laugh when things were bleakest, he let us in and made us feel like we were a part his family so that when he creatively took a chance and leaped off the precipice of that building, we were always right there with him. He wasn’t just a guy in a suit, he was Stan ‘The Man’ Lee! Goodbye my friend and of course…EXCELSIOR!” said Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer, Marvel Entertainment.
