Stan Lee dies at 95

Now all of Hollywood is paying tribute to Stan "The Man", and you can check out all the tributes following the Stan Lee death below.

Lee's stories did more than bring Spider-Man, Thor, The X-Men, Iron Man and so many others to life.

TMZ reports Lee was rushed from his Southern California home early Monday after experiencing shortness of breath. Lee reportedly passed away of natural causes.

He died early Monday in Los Angeles, his daughter confirmed to United States entertainment outlets.

The 95-year-old comic book legend - who is known for creating or co-creating numerous most famous Marvel superheroes - passed away in hospital on Monday and several Hollywood stars have taken to social media to honour the late icon.

His creations inspired many over the years and have reached an even wider audience thanks to the movie adaptations in which he often cameoed.

In the Bay area Lee made his presence especially felt a year ago, when he helped organize a fundraiser at MegaCon Tampa Bay to help victims of Hurricane Irma. 'Nuff said, and rest in peace.

Lou Ferrigno, who played the original Incredible Hulk, said there were "not enough kind words to post about my dear friend Stan Lee". The documentary series followed host Browning Smith (the "most flexible man in the world") as he traveled the world seeking out, testing, and interviewing individuals with real-life superpowers - or as close as one can get in the real world.

Lee was born in New York City in 1922, so naturally, he grew up a fan of the Yankees.

"So, Stan, typically we try to get him out - he doesn't love to fly - so we try to get him out for his cameos around the same time", Russo stated.

Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds tweeted: "Damn".

Captain America himself, Chris Evans wrote, "There will never be another Stan Lee".

If you consider yourself a fan of superhero films or movies - no matter which universe they take place in - you have probably heard of Stan Lee. Robert Downey Jr, the onscreen face of Iron Man, wrote a brief but touching tribute: "I owe it all to you".
