KHQA and local comic book fans remember Stan Lee


Stan Lee who brought life to some of the world's most iconic superheroes including Spider-man has died.

He created X-men, The Hulk, and The Amazing Spiderman.

Lee took a job as an assistant at a comic publisher when he was 16, that eventually grew into marvel comics, and Lee rose to become its president.

KHQA spoke with a local comic industry fan who says he is a true icon.

"When I was four my grandpa got me a subscription to Amazing Spiderman," Comic book fan Justin Twaddle said. "That ignited a passion. Now my son loves Spider-man. The fact these characters have the longevity to last 50 years and become billion dollar franchises is unbelievable."

Lee, who was often referred to as the Grandfather of the modern comic book passed at age 95.
