Flo Steinberg, one of the earliest Marvel employees and an American indie comics icon, has passed away. When Marvel Comics began, she and Stan Lee were the company's first and only employees; as Lee's secretary and assistant, she responded to fan mail, helped manage Marvel's small offices with Lee, and ran the Merry Marvel Marching Society, Marvel's first fan club, and saw the company transform into the pop culture icon it is today from the ground up.
