LOS ANGELES, Calif. -

TMZ reports Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee died at a Los Angeles hospital Monday, after an ambulance rushed him from his Hollywood Hills home.  It’s unclear at this time exactly how the comic book legend died, but he has experienced several health issues throughout the past year including a battle with pneumonia as well as issues with his vision.

Lee is most well-known as the creator of several comic book characters such as Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Avengers, X-Men and many more. He started the mammoth Marvel Comics giant with Jack Kirby in 1961. Since then, he’s not only continued to promote the brand, but appeared in cameos throughout all the film and TV projects for which his characters have been used. The next Marvel film in its long release schedule, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will hit theaters next month.

Lee is survived by his daughter, J.C. In 2017, his wife, Joan, died after almost 70 years together. 

Lee was 95.
