Stan Lee recuperating following pacemaker surgery

Stan Lee, surveying his domain at Comic-Con International

Following the sudden cancellation of two appearances this week in Ohio and talk of “a very serious circumstance,” many fans began to express concern about the health of legendary creator Stan Lee. But this afternoon the 89-year-old writer released a statement to announce he’s recuperating after having a pacemaker implanted.

“Attention, Troops! This is a dispatch sent from your beloved Generalissimo, directly from the center of Hollywood’s combat zone!” Lee wrote on the POW! Entertainment website. “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!”

Lee, who turns 90 in December, of course ended the statement with “Excelsior!”

Only Stan Lee could make an announcement about getting a pacemaker read so fun.

Stan is now and forever will be my hero.

Y’know, he says another 90 years, and he honestly makes you believe it.

Stan still the man even at 90. Don’t believe me? He undid comic strip OMD with Peter waking up and all being a dream. Wish him all the best with the pacemaker.

Someone get Stan a dose of Fury’s Infinity Formula, stat! Get well soon Stan.

Glad to hear Stan Lee is doing better. Hope he makes a speedy recovery. ^_^

Really who has ever lived life to the fullest to the degree Stan Lee has done? This guy enjoys life like nobody else. He’s brought so much joy to us all. He really is a superhero just like Christopher Reeve….Get well soon Stan, you’re the man!

Glad he is doing just fine, gotta love his attitude. :)

Stan, you rock so much!!! You’re the epitome of comic book cool! You MUST live that extra 90 years. At least so I can finally meet you face to face. Forever a fan and devoted soldier in your fan army! Get well soon, Stan!!!

Is it odd that I want this man to outlive me. And I am not even 20.

They say you can’t keep a good man down. When it comes to Stan the Man, he’ll get back up and keep going stronger than before.

One of the greatest storytellers and creative minds of the last century, and hopefully for a while to come into this century.

Long live Stan the Man!

admit it, you just read that in Stan’s voice.

Dear Thor, don’t take this man from usany time soon…

Well, I’m irked by the incorrect use of thee (me being someone who consistently mourns its loss in Standard Modern English), but it’s a fun read for sure.

Long live Stan the Man!

Stan… Still the Man, 90 years later. ^^

Man… I wonder how long Stan’s actually been in the entertainment business? I think he started out at something like…. 16?? Damn… he’s been at it for almost 75 years now!

Still as entertaining, still as brigth, still as inspiring. =)

STAN, YOU’RE THE MAN!!

Stan The Man Lee is know a proud member of the Stark Enterprise!!!!!

Sir, where is your armor, Sir?

Long life to Stan Excelsior Lee!!!!!

(do not a.n.y.m.o.r.e. to fright us, young boy!!!! :) )

Stan was running around jumping into photo shoots at the last con I was at…I said to myself, I want to be like him when I’m 90. Talk about not letting your age stop you!

We all wish you a speedy recovery, Stan. You are and always will be THE MAN.

I hope all the people who complained about Stan cancelling those appearances feel like selfish jerks right now.

Lay the smack down Stan!

Sheesh
Whataya tryin ta do ta us fearless leader,dont be pullin nothin on us true believers like that again anytime soon.Seriously get well soon Stan in the meantime the rest of comicfans and marveldom assembled will be hangin loose and facin front awaiting your return to full health!!!!

Let’s hope for another 90 years from Stan “the Man” Lee.

My dad had one put it. 6 weeks later he picked me up to prove a point. I’m 6’2″ 228 pounds and he’s 5’8″…180ish I suppose; and he’s just fine. GO GET ‘EM STAN!

Oh…and dad just turned 69.

Hey, Original True Believer! Here’s to many more funny book movie cameo appearances!

given that stan has lived this long to ninety would not be surprised if he not only out lives betty white by making it to a hundred but surpasses a hundred even.for stan is proving that death is not ready right now to battle stan to shed his mortal coil yet. for its not time yet.

The way he writes it, you know he means it. I don’t see him leaving anytime soon. If I am lucky to be that age, I hope I continue to have the energy of a twenty-year old. Excelsior, Stan. Get well soon.

Get well soon, Stan! And please take a break if necessary. You’ve been good to all of us over the years…you deserve some time to regain your strength. We’ll welcome your return to form whenever you’re ready. :-) And hopefully see you at more conventions in the future….

Stan’s a national treasure. And should be allowed to live forever.

Bleeding Cool had the best headline: Stan Lee Gets Arc Reactor Installed.

Just to correct Simon, if he will forgive me.

Stan is an INTERnational treasure. The whole world loves him.
