Stan Lee Announces His Iron Man Upgrade; Assures Fans He Will Live another 90 years!


You heard right, our beloved Stan “The Man” Lee just got a pacemaker! Stan went under major surgery last week in LA. Stan had to cancel recent appearances that week.

Lee — who will turn 90 in December — released a tongue-in-cheek statement through his company, POW! Entertainment, indicating he is recovering well from the procedure performed last week.

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!


Lee’s fertile imagination has spawned such superheroes as “Spider-Man”, “The Fantastic Four,” and the “X-Men,” to name a few, all creations and franchises belonging to Marvel Comics.

Stan Lee’s recovery is expected to occur normally, with the idea that he can resume his appearances as soon as possible and can make it to New York Comic-Con and Texas as scheduled.

Well said Stan and we all wish you the best of luck!
