Stan Lee ‘Feeling Great’ After Release From Hospital

Lee checked in to Cedars-Sinai hospital Wednesday night and released several hours later.

Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee is “feeling great” and returned home on Thursday hours after checking into to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles Wednesday night.

“All I really want to do is tell you that I’m feeling great,” Lee told L.A.’s ABC 7 after returning home. “I’m glad I spent that evening in the hospital. It did me a lot of good. It probably did my fans a lot of good. It kept me off their backs for the evening. But I’m feeling good now and I can’t wait to get in there and tangle with all the competition.”

Earlier in the evening, a representative told The Hollywood Reporter that “Stan is doing well and feeling good. He is staying there for a few days for some check-ups as a safety precaution.”

TMZ reported Thursday that Lee was taken to the hospital after suffering shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat, though his representatives did not provide any further information about Lee’s condition or reasons for being hospitalized.

Lee, 95, was editor-in-chief of Marvel comics for nearly 30 years and was the co-creator of dozens of Marvel’s most iconic characters, including The Avengers, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and Black Panther. “Black Panther” also happens to be the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry, hitting theaters Feb. 16. Lee has a cameo in the film as he has done with every other Marvel film, and he was at the Los Angeles gala premiere on Jan. 29.

Representatives for Lee did not immediately respond to a request from TheWrap for comment.
