Many were fearing the worst when Stan Lee abruptly canceled several appearances, but now we have more information. Mr. Lee underwent surgery to have a pace-maker put in, and according to the comic writer, he is doing fine.

Attention, Troops!

This is a dispatch sent from your beloved Generalissimo, directly from the center of Hollywood’s combat zone!

Now hear this! Your leader hath not deserted thee! In an effort to be more like my fellow Avenger, Tony Stark, I have had an electronic pace-maker placed near my heart to insure that I’ll be able to lead thee for another 90 years.

But fear thee not, my valiant warriors. I am in constant touch with our commanders in the field and victory shall soon be ours. Now I must end this dispatch and join my troops, for an army without a leader is like a day without a cameo!


Good to know the 90 year old is taking care of himself.
