  • China’s Camsing to Press on With POW! Business After Stan Lee’s Death

The Marvel Comics co-creator passed away on Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, having battled pneumonia and heart issues over the past years.

Taipei artist Jun Chiu's piece referenced the climactic ending of Avengers: Infinity War - one of the most recent Marvel films about Lee's characters.

Hammer, who has yet to honour the comic book king online, was not impressed by the early tributes, as many of them featured celebrities with Stan. Stan Lee has given cinema buffs and readers across the globe several memorable characters that people continue to swear by. The group is cooperating with KBS Hallyu Investment Partners to create the first Korean drama adapted on Stan Lee IP, and is developing an oriental superhero movie in cooperation with Linking Star Pictures.

He was able to publish his prolific creations including Thor, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Cyclops, Marvel Girl and many more.

Her surprise revelation has already got fans speculating about the character's super powers. "It's not over yet", urges Lee, speaking in a recorded phone call with the tabloid.

A ton of A-list Hollywood stars took to social media yesterday (Tuesday, 13th November) to pay tribute to the late Stan Lee.

Jackman's interview comes after an attorney for Lee's family confirmed the Marvel founder's passing to ET.

Larson, who makes her debut as Captain Marvel in the MCU next year, posted a photo of herself, drinking what looks like a cocktail, with the caption: "Thinking about Stan". Battles over Lee's estate, estimated to be worth around $50 million, produced accusations of elder abuse against his 68 year old daughter (which Lee dismissed in interviews) and the arrest of his longtime road manager.

Lee began his career in the comic book business in 1939, before revolutionising the industry by creating The Fantastic Four with Jack Kirby in 1961.

Appearing on TMZ Live to talk about her father's legacy, JC Lee said she had created a character called Dirt Man and that they were working on developing him together.
