Lee is not a quiet man, in fact he usually makes sure he is seen and heard quite often, whether he's at a Comic-Con or making a cameo as a hot dog vendor in the first X-Men movie.
We've seen his face and have heard his voice for decades as one of the greatest leaders and promoters of the comic book industry from actual pages to the big screen.
After many fans wished him a Happy Birthday, he reached back.
A hearty "Thank You" to everyone for sending those birthday wishes! Here's to hoping for a happy and healthy New Year for us all! #Excelsior— stan lee (@TheRealStanLee) December 28, 2016
