Today Stan Lee issued the following statement through POW! Entertainment:
POW! Entertainment, the media and entertainment company, today has a message from its founder and Chairman:
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 be ours soon. Now I must end this dispatch and join my troops, for an army without a leader is like a day without a cameo!
We are so relieved to finally learn the truth. We here at ComicBooked.com, and all the other “true believers,” wish Mr. Lee a speedy recovery and many more happy years.
