In a video posted Thursday on Twitter, Stan Lee had a message for fans he called “Close, close friends”: “I’m back.”

“It’s taken me a while to get used to being 79 years old,” joked Lee, who turned 95 in December.

Lee also promised that this latest video is only the first in a new series.

“I’m warning you, I’m back again with new energy, and new care, and new protestations of the fact that I love my fans.”

Lee concluded the video with his trademark “Excelsior” catch phrase.

It’s been rough several months for Lee, who lost his wife, Joan, last year and was briefly hospitalized in February.

“Lee also accused other unnamed people of falsely running social media accounts his name, but recently took control of his Twitter account, posting several videos addressing everything from those legal issues to that Thanos finger-snap in”Infinity War.

“Hey heroes, this is Stan Lee. I hope you haven’t forgotten me,” Lee- who hasn’t posted since June 10- said in the video, warning fans, “You better not have forgotten me.”

“It’s taken me a while to get used to being 79 years old,” joked Lee, who is really 95.

“We’ve been together for so many generations. I don’t want that to stop. I don’t consider you as fans. I consider you as close, close friends. I’d like to feel you consider me the same way… You’re my friend, I’m your friend, and we’re not gonna let anything come between that arrangement.”

“I’m warning you, I’m back again with new energy, and with new care, and with new things to say, and with new protestations of the fact that I love my fans,” he concluded before signing off with his famous “Excelsior” catch phrase.

Earlier this week, Lee, who has been in the midst of legal struggles with his former business manager, dropped a $1 billion lawsuit against POW! Entertainment for allegedly scamming him out of his likeness rights.

Lee claimed that the company took advantage of his macular degeneration, which rendered him legally blind in 2015, as well as his grief over the passing of his wife, Joan Lee, who died in July of that year.

“The whole thing has been confusing to everyone, including myself and the fans, but I am now happy to be surrounded by those who want the best for me,” Lee said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter at the time.

To say that 2018 has been a strange year for Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee would be an understatement.

As move into the second half of the year, things may in fact be looking up for Lee – at least according to his recent Twitter post, where he claims to have bounced back from some recent troubles.

“So let’s think of it that we have that relationship: I’m your friend, your my friend, and we’re not going to let anything come between that arrangement. And that’s all I really wanted to say, for my first in a new series of videos. So that’s it; I’m warning you I’m back again, with new energy, with new care, with new things to say, and with new [inaudible] of the fact that I love my fans, and they are the greatest people in the world, and I would do anything for them. Excelsior!”.

This seems like an upswing, after Lee has been giving Marvel fans legitimate concern over his health and well-being in recent months.

Things took a turn for the bizarre when it was announced that Lee was suffering from elder abuse at the hands of those close to him – a charge Lee initially denied, though he has since cut ties with and is suing a former manager for misusing his funds and possibly using violent intimidation tactics against him.

All of these concerning reports have led to an outpouring of support from fans and celebrities, who have all echoed the desire to see Lee get better care.

At the moment, Lee’s former lawyer Tom Lallas has been appointed as his official guardian ad litem, tasked with playing a supervisory role in protecting Lee’s interests – a situation used for cases like child abuse and elder abuse.
