Stan Lee dies at 95: Praise pours in for Marvel's biggest icon

Stan Lee, the man who helped propel Marvel into the entertainment juggernaut it is today, has passed away at the age of 95.

After playing an instrumental role in creating beloved characters like Spider-Man, the Avengers, X-Men, Black Panther and more, Lee has become an icon of the comics world, with his reach and influence growing in tandem with Marvel’s expansion into its cinematic universe.

As news of his passing spread, those who have worked with Lee or been inspired by his work took to Twitter to honor someone who for decades has been either one of Marvel’s driving creative forces, or a public figurehead across films and conventions.

Like Alfred Hitchcock, the Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee made a game out of sneaking cameo appearances into his films. Lee, whose death at age 95 was announced Monday, played everyone from a beauty pageant judge to a trucker in more than 20 movies.

Smart fans knew to look for Lee, but they’d often get caught up in the plot and forget about the white-haired legend until suddenly, there he was. There’s even a fan theory that Lee always played the same character, Uatu the Watcher, an alien whose job it was to observe what’s going on with Earth. Naturally, there’s another theory that he’s just an ordinary guy.
