Steve Ditko has passed away at 90 years old.
On Friday, The NYPD confirmed the legendary artist was found dead in his apartment days earlier.
Co-Creator of Legendary Marvel Characters
Steve Dkito was co-creator of Spider-Man and Dr. Strange, two legendary Marvel Comics characters.
When Stan Lee wasn’t impressed with Jack Kirby’s take on Spider-Man, he had Ditko take a run at it. The classic Spider-Man we all came to know and love was Ditko’s Spider-Man.
He would go on to help create some of Spider-Man’s most well known villains, such as the Green Goblin and Dr. Octopus.
Remembering Steve Ditko
Steve Ditko was true to his own ideals. He saw things his own way, and he gave us ways of seeing that were unique. Often copied. Never equalled. I know I’m a different person because he was in the world. pic.twitter.com/2GFSA86Btj
