Joan Lee, the wife of Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee has sadly passed away at the age of 93. She had reportedly been hospitalized this week after suffering a stroke. A spokesperson for the family released a statement today saying, “I can confirm the sad news that Joan Lee passed away this morning quietly and surrounded by her family. The family ask that you please give them time to grieve and respect their privacy during this difficult time.”

Joan and Stan met while she was working as a hat model in 1947. The two of them were happily married for 69 years. Upon meeting, Joan was already married and Stan was set to take her friend out on a date but the two of them hit it off instead. A few weeks later she divorced her husband and she and Stan were married by the judge that granted her divorce in a room next door. They had two children together, Joan Celia, and Jan, who sadly passed away 3 days after birth.

The couple moved New York after marrying, where Stan was working at what is now Marvel Comics.  Joan voiced “Miss Forbes” in Fantastic Four and “Madame Web” in Spider-Man for the animated series in the 90’s. Stan has been quoted as saying Joan was his inspiration for writing Fantastic Four, saying in the early days he was on the verge of quitting and leaving Marvel but she told him, “Before you quit, write a comic you’re proud of.” I think it’s safe to say Joan saved the Marvel Universe.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Lee family during this heartbreaking time. Rest In Peace, Joan.
