As the top writer at Marvel Comics and later, as its publisher, Lee revived and modernized the comic book industry in the 1960s, creating Spider-Man, the Hulk and the X-Men, which has formed part of the monolithic Marvel Universe film franchise. His career there began in 1941, at the age of 17.

Stan Lee’s final tweet was Sunday:

Lee was known for making several cameo appearances in Marvel Universe films, the most recent being Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp and most recently Venom, starring Tom Hardy.
