Marvel legend Stan Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man, Hulk, and the X-Men, has become a staggering force in the comic and film community in recent decades. When the 95-year-old was admitted to the hospital following reports of an irregular heartbeat and shortness of breath, it caused a lot of panic in the comic community.

But now it seems like it may have all been for naught. According to ABC, the wily and ever-spry Lee has been released from the hospital and is doing well.

"All I really want to do is tell you that I'm feeling great," Lee told ABC. "I'm glad I spent that evening in the hospital. It did me a lot of good. Now I’m home and looking for new trouble to get into. You know, the usual.”

After being spotted at the Black Panther premiere, Lee continues to give no indication of slowing down, saying that while his hospital stay probably did his fans a lot of good (“It kept me off their backs for the evening”), he “can't wait to get in there and tangle with all the competition."

With Stan Lee, we’d expect nothing less.
