Stan Lee, the ninety-year-old creator of most of the Marvel Universe and spiritual father of the modern comic book industry, has canceled a sold out public appearance on September 27 at the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library in Toledo, Ohio. The library had sold 2300 tickets for the event, part of their Authors! Authors! series. While fans are likely to be disappointed, a spokesperson for Lee said that the reason for the cancellation was "a very serious circumstance," though he was unable to reveal any more details.

The Outhouse is able to exclusively reveal that the "serious circumstance" was in fact the discovery by Lee and his people that Toledo is actually in Ohio, considered by most people to be the worst state in the entire union. "Oooooooohh," said a anonymous source within the Lee camp. "Yeah, um, Stan's not gonna be able to make it. Yeah. Very serious. He's come down with, uhh... ovarian cysts."

We explained that only women could get that, at which point the representative quickly excused himself. "Umm, I've got to go. I have a very serious circumstance."

This isn't the first time public figures have canceled appearances as soon as they realized they were in Ohio. Lee joins others such as basketball star LeBron James and the entire 1996 Cleveland Browns football team on the long list of people who have abandoned the Buckeye State and never looked back, usually to great success. In the case of James, who won the NBA Championship within two years, and the '96 Browns, who became the much better Baltimore Ravens, the decision to leave the state has proved to be a positive career move.

The Outhouse wishes Stan the best of luck.
