Fans Concerned As Industry Continues To Exploit 95-Year-Old Man

A very 95-year-old Stan Lee made his first appearance in months at Silicon Valley Comic Con.

There's two types of people in the world: those that think Stan Lee invented comics and those that know who Jack Kirby is. Regardless of your position, comics as a whole is best known for not caring about those that came before. There's Bill Mantlo, co-creator of Rocket Raccoon. There's William Messner-Loebs, writer and artist on Wonder Woman and The Flash. There's Don Perlin, who co-created Moon Knight.

And then there's Stan Lee, the co-creator of a large stable of Marvel Comics characters. The 95-year-old made his first public appearance in months at Silicon Valley Comic Con over last weekend and he certainly looked his age, following a recent case of pneumonia. The formerly outgoing Lee was instead reserved as he was carted from signings to photo ops.

There's a remarked difference in Lee's personality from this year and just two years prior.

Fans took to Facebook to voice their concern for Lee only after making sure they got his signature for $120 a pop.
