Marvel Comics Legend, Stan Lee, Dead at 95

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Comic book genius Stan Lee, the architect of the contemporary comic book, has died. He was 95.
    
The creative dynamo who revolutionized the comics by introducing human frailties in superheroes such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four and The Incredible Hulk, was declared dead Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to Kirk Schenck, an attorney for Lee's daughter, J.C. Lee.
    
As the top writer at Marvel Comics and later as its publisher, he revived the industry in the 1960s by offering the costumes and action craved by younger readers while insisting on sophisticated plots, college-level dialogue, satire, science fiction, even philosophy.
    
Spider-Man, the Hulk and X-Men were among the Lee creations that went on to become stars of blockbuster films.
