Stan Lee has been rushed to hospital after falling ill at his Los Angeles home.
Lee was taken to Cedars-Sinai after suffering shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat.
The world can breathe a collective sigh of relief as Stan Lee has been released from the hospital and is reportedly feeling great.
“All I really want to do is tell you that I’m feeling great,” Lee told Eyewitness News on Thursday night.
“I’m glad I spent that evening in the hospital. It did me a lot of good. It probably did my fans a lot of good. It kept me off their backs for the evening. But I’m feeling good now and I can’t wait to get in there and tangle with all the competition.”
In recent years, Lee has had to call off several appearances due to this health. After dropping two appearances in Ohio in 2012, Lee revealed that he’d had a pacemaker implanted. Twice in the past year, he was forced to cancel appearances at major conventions due to illness.
Lee appeared in good spirits, earlier this week, as he walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of Marvel’s Black Panther.
The legendary comic book creator was in his element as he posed for photos with the movie’s star Chadwick Boseman.
Lee joined Timely Comics, which would later become Marvel Comics, in 1939. He created the character in 1966 along with artist Jack Kirby. It has become customary for Lee to put in cameo appearances in Marvel films.
