Sadly, Joan Lee, the beloved wife of Marvel creator Stan Lee, died Thursday at 95. She suffered a stroke earlier in the week, and was hospitalized shortly thereafter. Marvel paid tribute to the super special lady in a statement, saying, “We lost a member of the Marvel family today.”

The couple had been married for 69 years, and their love story is one for the ages. According to all who knew them, they were extraordinarily devoted to each other. Stan and Joan proved that “love at first sight” isn’t just a saying, it’s a wondrous real-life phenomenon. false
