“My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man,” his daughter J.C, 69, told TMZ.

His wife of 69 years, also named Joan, passed away in July 2017.

Founding Marvel Comics in 1961 with Jack Kirby with the creation of The Fantastic Four, Lee went on to create Spider-Man Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, and The Avengers, among others. Since the formation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Lee has made a cameo appearance in each of the superhero films, though their relationship went through a rocky period. He sued Marvel for royalties for 2002’s “Spider-Man” movie, later settling for $10 million.

Famous fans and stars of the MCU took to Twitter and Instagram to honour Lee.
