The iconic Marvel writer, editor and publisher -- who co-created numerous superhero characters that included Daredevil, Spider-Man and Black Panther -- died this morning, one month shy of his 96th birthday, after he was rushed by ambulance from his Hollywood Hills home to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. TMZ reports: "Lee had suffered several illnesses over the last year or so -- he had a bout of pneumonia and vision issues." In addition to his behind-the-scenes work at Marvel, Lee also became known for making cameos on Marvel properties. One of his last on-screen appearances was as a limo driver last year on Hulu's Runaways. He even made a cameo last year on ABC's Fresh Off the Boat. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, "long before his Marvel characters made it to the movies, they appeared on television. An animated Spider-Man show ... ran on ABC from 1967 to 1970. Bill Bixby played Dr. David Banner, who turns into a green monster (Lou Ferrigno) when he gets agitated, in the 1977-82 CBS drama The Incredible Hulk. And Pamela Anderson provided the voice of Stripperella, a risque animated Spike TV series that Lee wrote for in 2003-04." ALSO: Marvel Universe stars pay tribute to Stan Lee.
