Prior to the official announcement, we have already expressed our doubts over Stan Lee’s travel to Manila. The start of March revealed that Stan Lee was currently down with pneumonia, and has been recuperating, which has also prompted a swift cancellation of his US-based comic convention engagements for the whole month. However, we also posited that apart from his current health condition, other factors are also contributing to his inability to fulfill his guest engagements.
