Stan Lee, the creator of iconic superheroes like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Daredevil, Hulk, X-Men and many more, passed away at the age of 95. 

In a statement to Reuters, his daughter J.C. Lee said, “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 writer was known for revolutionizing the comic book culture, and for the emotional elements he added to his characters. He never limited his stories to just a superhero flying from one building to another and saving a bunch of people, but he made sure he added dimensions to his story telling. There are countless stories of readers talking about how Lee and his comics helped them to cope with the difficulties in their lives. Some say it helped them deal with bullying, while some even say it helped them cope with the death of a loved one. The impact that Stan made on people with his work is unimaginable, and he will never be forgotten.
