Marvel Legend Stan Lee passed away earlier this month and the icon’s death certificate has now revealed the Marvel Comics creator’s cause of death.
According to TMZ, Lee died from heart and respiratory failure. He was also suffering from aspiration pneumonia — the inhaling of stomach acid, saliva, or food into the lungs. Lee passed away Monday, November 12 at 9:17 a.m. in Los Angeles, CA at the age of 95 after he was taken from his home in the Hollywood Hills to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
The Marvel legend is survived by his daughter J.C. Lee. His wife Joan passed away in July of 2017 in Los Angeles, CA after she was hospitalized following a stroke at the age of 93.
In 1961, Lee almost quit the comic industry for good after being displeased with his publisher Martin Goodman and the way he was directing Lee to tell stories. Before he quit, his wife Joan Lee advised and encouraged him to write one more comic. Lee went on to write Fantastic Four with the help of Jack Kirby. It all began one month later after the book resonated with readers and Lee was asked to write more titles similar to that of Fantastic Four. He then went on to create iconic titles such as Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, and The Avengers.
The Marvel co-creator had a private funeral per his final wishes on November 16. His legacy will carry on in both Marvel Comics as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe which continues next year with Captain Marvel, Avengers 4, and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Other known future projects from the studio include the Black Widow standalone film starring Scarlet Johannson, which is being directed by Cate Shortland from a script written by Jac Schaeffer, and the Black Panther sequel that Ryan Coogler is returning to direct as well as write. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was originally set to begin production in early 2019 but has since been put on hold.
