Marvel legend Stan Lee is said to be in a stable condition after reportedly being rushed to hospital on Wednesday evening.
The 95-year-old – who is responsible for the likes of The Hulk, Spider-Man, X-Men and Fantastic Four – is said to have suffered heart trouble, according to TMZ.
The website reports that he was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after suffering shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat. He’s currently still in hospital but in a stable condition.
A spokesperson for Stan said that he “is doing well and feeling good, he is staying there for a few days for some check-ups as a safety precaution.”
He was last pictured in public at the Black Panther premiere in Hollywood on Monday and appeared in good spirits.
Last year he cancelled a number of appearances at Salt Lake City Comic Con and Big Apple Comic Con, which was reportedly due to health issues.
Back in 2015 the comic book pioneer proved his commitment when he appeared at the Ant-Man premiere after being rushed to hospital the day before.
