Mumbai Police's poignant tribute to Stan Lee is winning hearts online

TMZ broke news of Lee's death, citing his daughter, J.C. Lee.

Lee served as Camsing's Chief Creative Officer after the firm bought POW! previous year. He's appeared in nearly every single Marvel Comics movie since Iron Man, and will nearly certainly continue to appear in movies in capacities in which his current form allows.

The video kicks off with a much younger version of the icon in 1968 with some footage from a TV pilot, with Stan Lee explaining his relationship to young readers that, especially fifty years ago, seemed forward thinking. As the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, he was responsible for the creation of more superheroes than you can shake a stick at, including Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Black Panther and Iron Man. "He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living".

The 95-year-old Marvel legend died yesterday, but fans will still get to enjoy his cameos in a few more unreleased movies. His family loved him and his fans loved him.

The man born Stanley Lieber published his first comic book under the pseudonym Stan Lee in 1941-Captain America Comics #3-and he never looked back. Roy called Stan "one of the most important mythmakers of the 20th century".

The next Marvel movie featuring Lee is Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is released this Christmas. Lee has been credited with developing over 360 characters throughout his long career. He was given carte blanche to try out new superhero concepts and, in collaboration with Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and other artists, delivered the building blocks of what would later become the Marvel Universe in 1961. "They hadn't quite found the right formula with the Hulk but he's very good in [The Avengers]".
