Last week, upon learning of multiple reports about Stan Lee cancelling his upcoming convention appearances due to, “a very serious circumstance,” we published an article wondering if this development could have anything to do with Stan’s health. We were genuinely worried, as were all of Stan’s fans. This sparked a passionate exchange of comments on the article and on our Facebook page. We were assured that Mr. Lee was in fine health, and not so politely accused of spreading false rumors that were unnecessarily scaring fans. We were even prompted to include a statement about milkshakes and Stan’s clean bill of health in a subsequent article. Stan may be in fine health, but it turns out his appearance cancellations were indeed health-related.
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.
