Watch Stan Lee Talk For The First Time After Being Released From The Hospital

On Wednesday night, Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee was rushed to the hospital due to heart problems.

Thankfully, the 95-year-old entertainment icon was able to recover and get back to his home after one night's stay at the hospital. In a Skype interview with ABC, Stan Lee provided an update on his condition following his hospitalization.

"All I really wanna do is tell ya that I'm feeling great," Lee said. "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."

Lee is known for his sense of humor, and apparently, he won't let his hospitalization take that away.

"I figured that a little check-up wouldn't be bad for me and, in fact, it turned out to be pretty good 'cause it got me a lot of publicity," Lee joked. "I didn't realize the whole world was worried about whether I was in the hospital or not."

When asked about the Black Panther world premiere, which Lee attended, the Marvel icon kept the jokes going.

"I'm always there," the legendary creator said. "I'm always helping, aiding, assisting. I hope the world really realizes how much it owes to me."

Of course, Lee looked more serious after the jokes, as he said something straight from his heart: "I just intend to keep doing this as long as I can."
