Marvel founder and comic book titan Stan Lee died on Monday, leaving behind one of the most influential and important careers in pop culture history.

As you can see, Lee's influence on generation after generation of fans and creators transcended age, social boundaries, genre preferences, and loyalties to any particular comics or movie universe.

Lee died Sunday night Pacific time at a Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, an attorney for Lee's daughter told CNN.

"There will never be another Stan Lee".

"Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created", said Bob Iger, The Walt Disney Company CEO, in a statement. Stan Lee's creations are still the crown jewel of everything Marvel is known for in 2018, and certainly the foreseeable future. Today, it would be nearly impossible to find a corner of the Marvel Universe that Stan didn't have a hand in. "I'd run down and get them sandwiches at the drug store, and I'd proofread the pages, and sometimes in proofreading I'd say, 'You know, this sentence doesn't sound right".

"He helped to create worlds that were both fantastic and relatable at the same time, allowing more people to embrace superhero stories".

Lee was the creative mastermind behind superhero classics such as Spider-Man, Captain America, X-Men, The Incredible Hulk and more.

"I think everybody loves things that are bigger than life".

Zachary Levi, who played Fandral in Thor: The Dark World, and Thor: Ragnarok, said Lee "quite literally changed the landscape of entertainment forever".

Lee's later years were fraught with many personal issues, including the death of his wife, illness, and deepening financial trouble, the Daily Beast reported. "I thanked him for being a visionary, not just creatively, but being a visionary in bringing Marvel to Hollywood, knowing how well they would be served by TV and film". We leave you this very sweet clip of the moment on this very sad day.
