Comic book legend Stan Lee is recovering after being hospitalized Wednesday (January 31st) evening. According to TMZ, he had felt a shortness of breath and irregular heartbeat before going to the hospital. It seems he’s doing okay, though.
Lee’s spokesperson said that the Marvel star “is doing well and feeling good—he is staying there for a few days for some check-ups as a safety precaution.”

On Monday night, Lee attended the premiere of Black Panther, the newest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, just last year he had to cancel two public appearances due to health concerns, including New York Comic Con.
Lee’s wife Joan passed away last year at the age of ninety-five after suffering a stroke. The couple would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in December.
Famous for helping to create a number of the world’s most famous heroes (Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, etc.) alongside Jack Kirby, Lee is probably most well-known today for appearing in virtually every Marvel movie adaptation in some capacity.
In any case, the legend is recovering. Excelsior!
