Writer, editor, and comics icon Stan Lee died at the age of 95 on Monday. After coming into the industry in 1939 as an office gopher, Lee would eventually co-create some of the most famous characters in pop culture, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Black Panther, and the Hulk. As the figurehead of Marvel Comics, he used his platform to address social injustice and discrimination, while later becoming well known to audiences for his cameos in Marvel films.
