Yesterday we lost one of life's true greats, after news broke that comic book legend Stan Lee had sadly passed away at the age of 95. His family loved him and his fans loved him.

Stan Lee was born in Manhattan in 1922, and began his 75-plus-year career in comics when he was a teenager, according to Marvel, which he created with Jack Kirby in 1961. He is credited or co-credited with creating such famous superheroes as Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk and Daredevil.

Here are some interesting facts about Marvel icon Stan Lee that you can share with your kids.

Lee is considered as one of the most legendary names in the history of comic books and the leading creative force behind the rise of Marvel Comics. Amid the continued outpouring of tributes on the Internet, however, folks also wondered whether any more cameos would be available for them to enjoy, and that answer would be yes, within the still-untitled Avengers 4.

Lee denied the accusations at the time. Lee was also involved in multiple business-related lawsuits, and the subject of a Los Angeles Police Department investigation into alleged elder abuse against him.

"So if we have other movies shooting on the same lot that we're on, for instance Ant-Man 2 or Avengers 4, we group his cameos together and then move him from one set to the next and kind of get him through his cameos in one day".
