Stan Lee has been no stranger to health scares in the past few years, but the 95-year-old comic book and Marvel legend keeps on chugging along. Whenever I see headlines with him being hospitalized or falling ill, I won’t lie: I get sad. That’s why what Lee told TMZ is troubling.
Lee is battling pneumonia, which we all know can be deadly. He told TMZ that he’s been forced to cancel public appearances at comic cons and such due to the sickness. However, there’s a bright spot in wake of this news.
“I want you all to know I’m thinking of you, of course I always think of the fans, and I hope you’re all doing well, and I miss you all,” Lee said. “I miss your enthusiasm, I miss all your notes, all your photos and emails… and I want you to know that I still love you all.”
