When it came to racism, the pen was Stan Lee's superpower

Stan Lee Marvel Fantastic Four Josh Trank

Stan Lee, the colourful Marvel Comics' patriarch who helped usher in a new era of superhero story-telling and the creator of Spiderman comics, died at the age of 95 on November 12.

Stan Lee was declared dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Thomas who is Lee's protege and also a comic book writer is reported by his manager, John Cimino to have talked for about 30 minutes with Lee and surprisingly they discussed comics and superheroes during the visit.

Born Stanley Martin Lieber on December 28, 1922, the native of the New York City neighborhood Washington Heights took the pen name Stan Lee around 1941 while working at Timely Comics, which would eventually evolve into Marvel comics.

On Monday, President Donald Trump - at the request of state authorities - declared that a "major disaster" exists in California . Ernest Foss, 63, was a musician who had moved to the town of Paradise from San Francisco eight years ago.

In 1968, a tumultuous year in the nation that saw the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., Lee wrote one of his most vocal "Soapbox" essays calling bigotry and racism "the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today".

Further, J.C. Lee speaks boldly when considering the legacy left by her father. When the man's father dies, he learns that he's next in line to be a shaman and has powers inherited from his ancestors.

In his, Bob Iger, chairman and chief executive of The Walt Disney Company, described Lee as "extraordinary as the characters he created".

The reason why we connect with the characters of the Marvel Comics and Cinematic Universe is because Lee made them as relatable and realistic as possible. 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's process would be known as The Marvel Method. He also made cameo appearances in all of the Marvel movies. "Black Panther and some of the (Marvel) films took the mantle and ran with the racial issue in ways I think Stan didn't intend. This is a good day for me, ' I was on a red carpet and I was the only one on there and no one was taking my photo because at the other end was Stan Lee".
