Since then, the legacy of Stan Lee not only re-gained popularity in young and old audiences alike, it turned inmortal as his creations became one of the biggest successes of movie history.

Disney acquired Marvel Entertainment for $4.24 billion in 2009 – a price largely based on the value of characters conceived by Lee decades earlier – adding to the already growing super hero boom that was hyping up everybody everywhere.

  • The Avengers ($4.97b)

  • Spider-Man ($4.84b)

  • The X-Men ($3.18b)

  • Iron-Man ($2.42b)

  • Thor ($1.95b)

  • Black Panther ($1.35b)

  • Ant-Man ($1.14b)
