Stan Lee, Legendary Comics Writer and Editor Who Co-Created the Marvel Universe, Dies at 95
Stan Lee, the legendary comic book writer and editor who helped redefine the medium when he co-created much of Marvel Comics’ vast library of characters and concepts, died Monday, according to THR. He was 95.

Working alongside fellow comics titans like Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby during the 1960s, Lee was instrumental in sparking what became known as “the Marvel revolution,” a shift in superhero comics that emphasized flawed protagonists expressing humanistic values. Concepts and plots remained as colorful and weird as ever. But Marvel characters, written with complex, realistic personalities and mundane private lives, often had to resolve family, dating and even financial challenges while protecting the public from an increasingly packed roster of supervillains.

This new approach to superhero comics debuted in “The Fantastic Four,” a team of superheroes presented as a dysfunctional but loving family unit that Lee co-created with Kirby in 1961. Lee credited his wife, Joan, for

While the co-creator of comic book icons like Spider-Man, Iron Man Thor and the X-Men catapulted Lee to fame and prestige, all was not easygoing for the businessman in the months leading up to his death.

In April, Lee sued his ex-manager Jerardo Olivarez for allegedly duping him out of millions of dollars — and stealing his blood, according to a complaint filed in Los Angeles and obtained by People.

Pippa Middleton Has Revealed the Name of Her First Child, and It Has a Poignant Significance
Almost a month after having welcomed their first child, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews have finally revealed the name chosen for their baby boy. According to People, the couple opted for a three-part moniker: Arthur Michael William.

Arthur was born on Oct. 15 at London's St. Mary's Hospital, just three days after his parents made a surprise appearance at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding.

While it hasn't been confirmed, it is thought that the name Michael was chosen to honor James's late brother Michael Matthews, who sadly passed away at the age of 22 after having reached the summit of Mount Everest in 1999. James's brother, British reality TV star Spencer Matthews, also chose the same middle name for his son, Theodore Frederick Michael, who was born in September. Of course, Pippa and Kate's father is also named Michael.

After months of speculation, Pippa announced her pregnancy in April when she

Stan Lee Dead at 95: Comic Book Legend Populated the Marvel Universe With Iron Man, Spider-Man and More Iconic Characters
Where does one even begin when it comes to Stan Lee? For starters, the movie business wouldn't look like it does today without him. The writer couldn't have envisioned when he first put ink to paper in 1939 that he'd be dreaming up some of the most iconic, recognizable characters in the universe—Marvel or otherwise—or that he'd become a superhero himself among comic book fans. Lee died Monday. He was 95 and had been in frail health for some time, but still had writing, producing and cameo projects in the works, all stemming from his role as co-creator of Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Doctor Strange, Thor, the Silver Surfer and the X-Men, to name a few.
