Stan Lee, creator of Spiderman, The Avengers and Fantastic Four and the face of Marvel, has died.

The 95 year old died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles, according to a family representative.

His death follows closely behind his wife Joan, who died aged 69 in July 2017 – one of many pitfalls in what has been described as a ‘tumultuous’ final few years of his life.

Earlier this year in June, it was revealed the Los Angeles Police Department had been investigating reports of elder abuse against him and he had also filed a number of lawsuits against executives and an ex-business manager.

The legendary writer began his career in the 1960s, giving a point of difference to his characters – a human element.

His heroes each had their own unique eccentricities like Peter Parker/Spiderman who fretted about dandruff and struggled with dating.

The news of his death has come to a shock to many of his fans and co-workers, worldwide.
