Lee started his comic career in 1961 along with Jack Kirby with ‘Fantastic Four’. His career took a giant leap and he became the popular face of Marvel Comics. He made appearances at various comic book conventions in America and even gave lectures at colleges.
In October 2011, Lee announced he would partner with 1821 Comics on a multimedia imprint for children, Stan Lee’s Kids Universe, a move he said addressed the lack of comic books targeted for that demographic. In 2012 at San Diego Comic-Con International, Lee announced his YouTube Channel Stan Lee’s World of Heroes which airs programmes created by Lee.
The Stan Lee Foundation was founded in 2010 which focuses on literacy, education, and the arts. The main goals of this foundation are supporting programs and ideas that improve access to literacy resources, as well as promoting diversity, national literacy, culture and the arts.
Millions of people were saddened with Lee’s demise and expressed their condolences for the Marvel giant, who also made cameos in almost all Marvel movies.
There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!? Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) November 12, 2018
