Stan Lee Rushed To Hospital For Irregular Heartbeat
Comic book legend, Stan Lee has been rushed to a hospital after experiencing shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat.
According to TMZ, the 95-year-old was taken to Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles and is in stable condition.
In recent years, Lee has had to call off several appearances due to this health. After dropping two appearances in Ohio in 2012, Lee revealed that he’d had a pacemaker implanted. Lee was also rushed to hospital in 2015, though he was able to attend the red-carpet premiere of Ant-Man, which happened the next day. In 2017, Lee cancelled appearances at Big Apple Con and Salt Lake City Comic Con’s FanX.
Mr Lee was last seen at the premiere of Black Panther on Monday night.
There he posed with actor Chadwick Boseman, the film’s lead, and looked in good spirits.
His wife, Joan, died last July after suffering from a stroke – she was 93 years old.
Lee is widely known for his cameo appearances in superhero blockbusters – he has been spotted on-screen in over 30 movies.
The legend, also known as Stanley Martin Lieber, was born on December 28, 1922, before going on to create a slew of incredibly popular characters that would go on to change comics and film forever.
