Marvel mastermind Stan Lee has announced to the world that he’s had a pacemaker fitted, but the sprightly 90 year-old is in typically good humour about his new cyborg modification.(opens in new tab)
The creator of the world’s greatest superheroes released the following statement:
“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!”
A swift and full recovery to you, Stan, you living legend from all us here in the UK.
