Stan Lee tragically passed away at the age of 95 and the stars of some of Marvel's biggest movies are reacting to the tragedy.

Lee did still enjoy the fruits of his Marvel labors, however, telling ABC News in 2015 that the dominance of those characters at the box office half a century after their creation felt "wonderful".

After that initial failure, Lee formed the successful Pow!

Lee and his wife, Joan, Wednesday in 1947 and raised two children in New York City. Lawsuits, court fights and an elder abuse investigation all emerged in the fight over who spoke for the elderly Lee.
