Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee has reportedly passed away. He was 95.

According to TMZ, an ambulance headed to Lee's home in the Hollywood Hills on the morning of Monday, Nov. 12. He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he passed on.

Lee has had enormous influence on pop culture, most recently thanks to the box office-busting Marvel films. He famously made small appearances in all of them, from 1989's The Trial of the Incredible Hulk to 2018's Venom.

The writer started his comics business in 1939. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he played a role in the creation of a number of Marvel characters, including Black Panther, Spider-Man, X-Men, The Mighty Thor, Iron Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, and Ant-Man.

In 2016, Lee let fans in on his writing process and how he managed to create beloved characters who inspired and uplifted.

"I always wrote for myself," Lee told the Hollywood Reporter. "I figured I'm not that different from other people. If there's a story I like a lot, there's got to be others with similar tastes."

"For years, kids have been asking me what's the greatest superpower," he stated in the same interview. "I always say luck. If you're lucky, everything works. I've been lucky."
