On Monday 12th November, Stan Lee's death at 95 was confirmed. Lee was a pivotal force in shaping Marvel Comics into the entity that we know and love today, lending it the self-referential earnestness that has helped make the MCU a juggernaut. He is credited with creating Spider-Man as a self-aware and fallible superhero, as well as his work as co-creator of Iron Man, the Hulk, X-Men and the Fantastic Four.
Over his years as a comics superhero of his own, Lee frequently made cameos in Marvel movies, most recently appearing in Avengers: Infinity War as a bus driver. Active until his death, Lee was beloved by both fans and the actors and actresses he worked with. And, if you've done the math on those cameos, that's a lot of actors.
