Comic Book Legend Stan Lee Gets a Pacemaker, Keeps Sense of Humor
Stan Lee is beloved for his long-running career in the comic book biz, and though the 89-year-old has some health issues, as he recovers from having a pacemaker installed, Lee proves the years have done nothing to dampen his creativity or sense of humor.In a statement to his fans, as published in full on TMZ, Lee writes:
"Attention, Troops! This is a dispatch sent from your beloved Generalissimo, directly from the center of Hollywood’s combat zone!
Now hear this! Your leader hath not deserted thee! In an effort to be more like my fellow Avenger, Tony Stark, I have had an electronic pace-maker placed near my heart to insure that I’ll be able to lead thee for another 90 years.
But fear thee not, my valiant warriors. I am in constant touch with our commanders in the field and victory shall soon be ours. Now I must end this dispatch and join my troops, for an army without a leader is like a day without a cameo!"
Lee's pacemaker was put in place last week, according to City News Service.
