Where has Stan Lee been? Still home fighting “a little bout of pneumonia,” but he says it seems to be getting better.

“I want you all to know I’m thinking of you. Of course, I always think of the fans, and I hope you’re all doing well and I miss you all. I miss your enthusiasm,” the 95-year-old comics icon said in a video released to TMZ, which posted it early Wednesday. 

Marvel co-creator Lee had spent a night in the hospital a few weeks back, shortly after attending the late-January “Black Panther” world premiere, KABC “Eyewitness News” reported Feb. 1. He had experienced shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat. 

"I figured that a little checkup wouldn't be bad for me, and it turned out to be pretty good. It got me a lot of publicity," he told KABC at the time, via Skype, with a hint of a smile.

"I didn't realize the whole world was worried about whether I was in the hospital or not.”
