Stan Lee, the Marvel Comics visionary who co-created several of the brand's most iconic superheroes, including Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk, has died at the age of 95.

Tragic news in the comic community shook the world Monday when Stan Lee passed away. Even after he stepped down from the role, Lee continued to be the face of Marvel and made numerous cameo appearances in movies, TV shows, and comics.

This is the last known pic of Stan, taken on Saturday, as Stan smiled next to his protege, comic book writer Roy Thomas.

Lee did not say more about the character but said it was "not over yet". He was suffering from age-related illness for the past few years and was admitted to the hospital due to an attack of pneumonia. As his daughter, J.C. told TMZ, "My father loved all of his fans".

The reason why we connect with the characters of the Marvel Comics and Cinematic Universe is because Lee made them as relatable and realistic as possible.

To wrap things up, Lilly called Lee an inspiration, and shared her hope that his legacy would live on in all of us for years to come.

Lee scripted, art-directed and edited most of Marvel's series throughout the 1960s, and often featured topical storylines that addressed current issues such as elections, and the Vietnam War.
