Stan Lee has been hospitalized with shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat, TMZ reports. The 95 year old Lee was taken to Cedars-Sinai last night after falling ill at home but is currently in stable condition.
Lee has cancelled a few appearances of late but was out at the Black Panther premiere on Sunday. Although he was photographed with star Chadwick Boseman, he also spent part of the event in a wheelchair – which is not unusual given his age, but still something that seems out of character for the still energetic Lee.
He appeared last month at the Ace Comicon in Phoenix.
