Stan Lee’s extraordinary career, fame and fortune

Stan Lee, who passed away on Nov. 12 at age 95, helped launch Marvel into the comic book powerhouse it is today by co-creating some of the biggest names in the superhero world — including Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man, plus The Fantastic Four and The X-Men.

Lee had recently gone through troubling times. He took out a temporary restraining order against his manager of several months, Keya Morgan, after Morgan was arrested on suspicion of filing a false police report. The Los Angeles Police Department had been investigating reports of elder abuse — it’s claimed that Morgan controlled access to Lee, moved him from his family home and more.
