Comics Legend Stan Lee Gets A Pacemaker
Comic book legend and Beverly Hills local Stan Lee is recuperating after getting a pacemaker, it was announced today.
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.
“This is a dispatch sent from your beloved Generalissimo, directly from the center of Hollywood’s combat zone!” he quipped. “Now hear this! Your leader hath not deserted thee! I have had an electronic pacemaker placed near my heart to ensure that I’ll be able to lead thee for another 90 years.”
The Beverly Hills resident is the creator of such comic book icons as Spider-Man, The Hulk, X-Men and the Fantastic Four.
