Stan Lee - writer, editor, and publisher of Marvel Comics - died at the age of 95, according to news outlet TMZ.

The news of Lee's passing has been met with an outpouring of grief.

Paramedics responded to Lee's house in the Hollywood Hills early Monday morning for a medical emergency. That outlet noted Lee had suffered several illnesses over the past year or so, including dealing with pneumonia.

Lee lost his wife of 69 years, Joan B Lee, in July 2017, and is survived by their daughter Joan Celia.

In the 70s, as the publisher for Marvel, Lee used his editorial page, 'Stan's Soapbox, ' to speak to the comic book reader about issues such as discrimination, intolerance, and prejudice. With Stan at its helm, Timely Comics morphed first into Atlas Comics and then into the name that would catapult it into legend and forever be synonymous with Stan Lee: Marvel Comics.
