Today we lost a true legendary man, one that shaped the entertainment and pop culture with his vision. Stan "the Man" Lee helped with the creation of Marvels most iconic characters with the help of artists like Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko (who also sadly passed away recently this year), and others. He was the face of Marvel for many fans for decades, and he will be missed.
I believe the first time I heard of him was back in the late 90s on the Spider-man cartoon show
fun fact, the character Madame Web was voiced by Stan Lee's wife, Joan Lee, who sadly also passed away last year.
And of course most younger people probably know him best for his cameos in the Marvel movies.
