Spiderman creator Stan Lee, whose Marvel comic book heroes have dominated US culture for more than half a century, has been fitted with a heart pacemaker at the age of 89, he announced Friday.

Lee — whose characters include the Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America and Thor, who teamed up in this year’s big screen blockbuster The Avengers — said he plans to live for another 90 years. “I have had an electronic pacemaker placed near my heart to ensure that I’ll be able to lead thee for another 90 years,” he said.
