Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee Felt Obligation to Fans, To Keep Creating, Reveals His Daughter.

“He felt an obligation to his fans to keep creating. He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living. His family loved him and his fans loved him. He was irreplaceable.” The words of J.C. Lee- the daughter of writer, editor, and former publisher and president of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, who died on Monday, at the age of 95.

Lee, who co-invented Spider-Man and was responsible for turning superhero comic books into a phenomenon, was taken to Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Medical Center on Monday after suffering a medical emergency; he was declared dead shortly afterwards, Lee’s daughter confirmed to Variety.

To some, Lee was one of the greatest pop-culture creators of his era – the primary voice behind Marvel’s golden years and the mind that introduced characters every schoolkid knows: Not just your friendly neighborhood web-slinger but also the Fantastic Four, X-Men, Iron Man, Daredevil, the Hulk, the Avengers, and on and on.
