Vale superhero creator Stan Lee, who has died age 95

The movie and comic book worlds are in mourning today, rocked by news that the greatest superhero inventor of all time – Stan Lee – has passed away, age 95.

Lee was a true visionary who gave us some of the world’s best-known superhero characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Panther, the Avengers and the X-Men.

The legendary artist, who famously cameoed in too many movies to name here, entered the comic book world in 1939 as a 17-year-old office assistant at a company called Timely Comics – which would go on to become Marvel Comics.

Today social media is full of tributes to the life of a true visionary. Here is a (very) small selection of them.
