Condolence messages continue to pour in after the death of American writer and former president of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee who died at the age of 95.
Lee had suffered from pneumonia in February this year. He also struggled with vision issues and had revealed in 2016 he could no longer read the comics he created.
He was the creator of dozens of comic-book heroes, including Spider-Man, X-Men, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four and Black Panther.
Lee’s work creating characters for Marvel spanned from the 1960s and into the early 1970s. However, he was still involved with the production of the films based on his comics, and regularly made brief, tongue-in-cheek cameos within the movies.
He became known for imbuing in his heroes the sort of flaws that were rarely visible among other comic-book protagonists, such as jealousy, pride and even financial constraints.
In January this year, Lee became caught up in the #MeToo movement when he was accused of sexually harassing his caretakers at his home in Los Angeles.
Lee denied the accusations at the time.
