Stan Lee, a popular comic writer, editor and publisher, passed away yesterday at the age of 95. He was taken to the hospital from his home at Los Angeles on Monday morning after which he was declared dead. However, the reason for the death is yet to come to the fore. Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai-born Indian cricketer, is devastated after hearing the mournful news.
Lee began his career at what was then Timely Comics in 1939. He was the Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics, which has produced well-known superheroes as Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, Back Panther, Doctor Strange, Thor, The Hulk, Wolverine, Deadpool, Ghost Rider and many others. Rohit took to Twitter and expressed his gratitude to the legendary figure.
Rohit also mentioned that Marvel won’t be the same without Lee. The 31-year-old batsman took to Twitter and wrote, “.@TheRealStanLee – you will be missed. No Marvel movie will be complete without you. Thank you for leaving us with some of the greatest heroes of all time. And giving me my favourite superhero #Hulk #RIP,”

Rohit’s recent cricket assignments
Rohit recently led the Indian team to a 3-0 whitewash in the T20I series against visiting team Windies, captained by Carlos Brathwaite, and has now won 11 of 12 matches as the skipper of the T20I team. Prior to that, he also captained India to their seventh Asia Cup title in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where they were the only team who remained unbeaten.
He is now scheduled to play a four-day unofficial Test for India ‘A’ in their match against New Zealand ‘A’. The same is for the reason that the selectors would want to see him prior to the four-match Test series against Australia, which gets underway at Adelaide Oval on December 6. His next international assignment would be against the Aussies in the three-match T20I series, which starts on November 21 in Brisbane.
