Brands spanning multiple industries took to Twitter to pay tribute to Stan Lee, the iconic writer, editor, and publisher of Marvel Comics, who died on Monday at the age of 95.
Lee was responsible for such iconic characters as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther, and the Fantastic Four. But he also enlisted in the Army in 1942 and served in the Signal Corps.
Because of this, comic book publishers, movie studios, toymakers, and organizations such as the U.S. Army and NASA mourned Lee on Monday.
Here’s what 23 brands had to say about the legend on Twitter.
