Marvel legend, co-creator of most of movieverse characters, and overall nerdy comic guy, Stan Lee had to cancel his 2014 SDCC appearances due to illness.


Stan Lee had to cancel all appearances at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive story says laryngitis sidelined the Marvel legend from coming this year. Borys Kit notes scheduled signings on Friday and Saturday, as well as appearances, have been cancelled in "Comic-Con: Stan Lee Abruptly Cancels Appearance."


However, there's definitely good news about the 91-year-old. "Stan is otherwise well and in good health, though he is disappointed to miss the event and wishes everyone a great time."

Fans of Marvel are sure to be upset the cancellation since Lee offers a lot of insight into the comic book world, as a former editor-in-chief to Marvel Comics, and an extra on a lot of the movie sets.

That doesn't mean they'll be mad at Stan, though. He's worked hard at promoting the studio during the "Marvel Age" comics and beyond.


And that promotion extends to being an early supporter of the convention. Kit states that the man worked "getting Hollywood’s attention when Comic-Con began its toddler years."

For all the criticisms about the commercialization of the annual event, the juggernaut offers a lot of exclusive information and products. And Stan Lee's left a definite mark since this is one of only a couple he's missed.

Lee pretty much co-created most of Marvel Studio’s superhero sources: X-Men, The Hulk, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor, Avengers, and the Fantastic Four to name a few.

Okay, so maybe he created pretty much all of the modern Avenger adaptations, considering he also co-created the current movieverse’s Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff. Basically he just didn’t have a hand in Captain America’s origins.


Being an editor-in-chief clearly pays in dividends.

Then native New Yorker’s last appearances were June's Phoenix Comic-Con and an appearance in London.

Kevin Melrose of Robot 6, a part of Comic Book Resources, confirms Lee’s been traveling for the last several months in "Stan Lee cancels Comic-Con appearance." Stops included the American Library Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas, where he met up Freedom Rider turned Congressman John Lewis.

According to CBR, Lewis is now a comic writer after publishing March: Book One for Top Shelf Productions. Book One is the first installment of a trilogy by Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell.

Plus, there are also two conventions out of the country. First was Sydney’s Supanova Pop Culture Expo and then the London Film and Comic Con, where he was a presenter at the inaugural True Believers Comic Awards.

 


For a man past his ninth decade, Stan never seems to stop. Hopefully, he'll stay fine and can appear at San Antonio's Alamo City Comic-Con in September. Comic fans need updates as Marvel gears up for a strong 2015. Not to mention Stan Lee's Comikaze in October, his own convention located in Los Angeles.

Of course, everyone can catch a glimpse of Lee on Aug. 1, when he'll cameo in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, until San Antonio.
