Stan Lee is suing his former entertainment company POW!
The curious case of Stan Lee has made waves across the Internet ever since Lee was diagnosed with pneumonia and hospitalized with an irregular heartbeat this February.
It also claims that after the death of Lee's wife, Joan Lee, he became "the target of various unscrupulous businessmen, and opportunists who saw a chance to take advantage of Lee's despondent state of mind, kind and devotion to his craft - a devotion that often allowed him to overlook the bad intentions in others when it came to his property".
It added that Lee has a history of agreeing to non-exclusive licences for the use of his name, image and likeness.
However, the suit says, Champion and POW!
According to the suit, Lee "does not recall anyone reading the Illegitimate Document to him, and, due to his advanced macular degeneration, he could not have read it himself". "While the Illegitimate Document purports to contain Lee's signature, Lee never knowingly signed it".
Lee also claims POW! took control of his social media accounts and has been impersonating him - something he's recently addressed on Twitter.
"Given his fame and cultural importance as an American icon and living legend, there is significant commercial interest in the use of his image, name and likeness", said the claim.
The suit suggests that Duffy, Champion or POW! either forged Lee's signature, lifted it from another document or induced him to sign it by telling him it was something else.
Adam D.H. Grant and Jennifer Levin Stearns of Alpert, Barr & Grant are representing Lee in the suit, which punitive and compensatory damages in excess of $1 billion.
Lee's lawsuit against his former company includes current CEO Shane Duffy and Gill Champion - co-founder of POW! alongside Lee - and accuses them of tricking Lee into signing over the exclusive rights to his likeness, including the rights to his name.
