Stan Lee has been rushed to hospital after falling ill at his Los Angeles home.
The legendary comic book creator, who’s 95, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday night, TMZ reported.
Lee was said to be suffering from shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat.
TMZ stated he is in stable condition. There’s been no official word from his representatives.
Earlier this week, Lee appeared in good spirits as he walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of Marvel’s Black Panther.
The legendary comic book creator was in his element as he posed for photos with the movie’s star Chadwick Boseman.
However, twice in the past year he was forced to cancel appearances at major conventions due to illness.
Monday’s event marked Lee’s first official appearance on a red carpet since allegations of sexual misconduct were made against him last month by nurses caring for him at his Hollywood Hills home.
Lee has vigorously denied the accusations.
Lee was widowed in July 2017 when his wife of 70 years, Joan, died aged 95. The couple had one surviving daughter, J.C. Lee.
He remains a fixture on the comic book circuit thanks to his career.
He started out writing comic books and went on to become editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics as well as its publisher and chairman.
Marvel is the highest grossing movie franchise in history having raked in $23 billion at the box office.
