According to TMZ, Lee was brought to the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, California due to shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat. Thankfully, his camp clarified that the celebrated comic book creator was fine and will only need to stay in the hospital for a few days so he could get some rest.
The 95-year-old was last seen in high spirits with fans during the red carpet premiere for Marvel’s Black Panther Film this week:
Lee is also scheduled to visit Manila during the first ever Comic Con Asia 2018, which will be held from March 24 to 25 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

Lee now seems to be in stable condition, but needless to say, the whole geek universe was worried over the health scare. Check out these social media reactions from fans and comicbook personalities alike:
