In 1977, Stan Lee explains why he sees Spider-Man as being a regular guy.

Lee and Gene Colan co-created the first Captain Marvel that debuted in December 1967. Meanwhile, the first Stan Lee (Shanghai) Comic Universe expo was held between 1 October and 3 October 2018 in Shanghai.

I used to have a lot of expressions that I would end my comic book columns with: Hang Loose, Face Front, 'Nuff Said, and I found that the competition was always imitating them and using them.

Lee, who founded Marvel Comics with Jack Kirby in 1961, helped create some of the comic world's most revered superheroes.

Prior to this, he narrated several episodes of the early 1980's cartoon series' The Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. His personality flowed through the pages of Marvel's letters column and "how to" books.

Beyond Spider-Man, Lee, who recently died at the age of 95, was the creative force behind many iconic Marvel characters including Iron-Man, The Hulk and The X-Men. To this day, Image titles are owned by the writers and artists who created them, not the publisher, which is why it's become home to such beloved and critically acclaimed comics as The Walking Dead, Saga, Monstress, and more.

Gwyneth Paltrow has been mocked online after she posted a questionable tribute to Stan Lee on Instagram.

As one of the creators and minds behind the Avengers and the various Marvel universes, Stan Lee makes cameos in nearly every one of the films that bring his characters to the big screen. Marvel released its own tribute to Lee on Monday.

Upon hearing the news, countless fans and celebrities took to social media to share their memories of Lee and their condolences. Lee and the likes of Kirby, Ditko, and John Romita Sr. laid groundwork that has turned into a web of characters who have lasted 50 years. For seven hours I sat there amazed that I was sitting next to Stan Lee.

"My father loved all of his fans", his daughter JC told Hollywood celebrity news portal TMZ.
