Stan Lee was recently rushed to the hospital. Details were few and far between about what the cause was. But just a day after he was in the hospital, Lee took an interview informing everyone he was doing okay. However, Stan Lee has recently been canceling a number of his upcoming appearances and we just found out the reason. Stan Lee is battling pneumonia, but he is still as optimistic as ever. Stan Lee addressed his fans in a video from TMZ.

In a soft voice.,Stan Lee who is 95 explains that he was forced to cancel some scheduled events due to his ill health, but he says his struggle with pneumonia, “it seems to be getting better.”

In the video, he reassures fans that he’s a fighter much like the superheroes he created. He says: 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. I miss your enthusiasm, I miss all the notes, all the photos and emails I used to get and I still get a lot of them and I want you to know that I still love you all.

In closing, Lee tells us that he hopes the next time he addresses the fans he will be in better shape and that maybe I’ll have some of this pneumonia knocked down, and we can have some real fun over the internet. Until then, Excelsior.”

Over the last few months, Stan Lee has had his share of health scares that have put the comic book world on notice. None of us are ready or even want to think of a world without Stan Lee in it. But at 95 he has been able to have a cameo in every Marvel Cinematic Universe Film. His image is even included in the Netflix series where he is usually portrayed as a New York police officer with posters of him showing up in police stations.

Along with his health troubles, Stan Lee also appears to be a victim of a number of crimes. Police were called to his house a few weeks ago over potential elderly abuse. He’s also seen quite a bit of his money stolen from him through fraudulent checks. Lee was also accused of sexual misconduct, but those accusations appear to be just that accusations without any real proof to their veracity. It seems 2018 has started on a sour note for the famous comic book legend. I do hope that everything starts to turn around for Stan. In the meantime let’s honor this man and send him our well wishes!
