Sad news today in the entertainment world. Stan Lee, the artist and visionary behind comic book legends like Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, Black Panther and the X-Men has passed away at age 95.

According to People magazine, Lee is credited with popularizing the flawed hero, or characters with complex, human personalities. This came in stark contrast to the superhero archetypes of the Golden Age of comics, who were typically flawless muscle-bound god-like figures.
Stan Lee, who loved to meet fans, made numerous appearances at the Calgary Comic Expo, and was most recently in the news last December after falling victim to scammers.
No word how Marvel plans to honour their iconic founder.
KJ: RIP Stan. You truly were a Marvel!
