Comic book legend Stan Lee dead at 95

Cover of Stan Lee by Bob BatchelorAmerican comic book writer Stan Lee was the human behind the superheroes. Many marvel at the man who gave his characters extraordinary powers and everyday headaches - a formula which revolutionized comics. The Hulk, Iron Man, Daredevil and the Fantastic Four all sprang from his fertile imagination and spilled onto the page. But while his career may have started in pen and ink, it grew and evolved into much more. From digital graphic novels to blockbuster Hollywood films; leading Marvel Comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation; Stan Lee was prolific. And fans also delighted in seeing Lee's brief cameo appearances in almost every Marvel live-action movie.

He said: "Every time I go to a comic book convention, at least one fan will ask me, 'What is the greatest superpower of all?' I always say that luck is the greatest superpower, because if you have good luck then everything goes your way."
