Marvel founder Stan Lee in troubled waters after sexual assault allegation

Marvel founder Stan Lee in troubled waters after sexual assault allegation

Stan Lee has been accused of groping and harassing the nurses who care for the elderly man at his home. The incident allegedly took place in his hotel room during the comic convention C2E2 in April of 2017 in Chicago.

But Lee's attorney Tom Lallas told DailyMail.com that the star "categorically denies" the allegations that he attacked the masseuse and insists they are part of "another" shake down for money. The company also stopped working with Lee late previous year.

He has a personal fortune estimated at $50 million and the Marvel franchise has made $23 billion at the box office.

No police complaints or lawsuits have been filed, but the nursing company is now in a legal dispute with Lee. The 95-year-old was accused by his former carers of inappropriate sexual behaviour and assault, and they've now been joined by a female masseuse who was working at a Chicago hotel when she came into contact with Lee.

Lee is the co-creator of Spider-Man, X-Men, The Hulk and numerous other comic books.

His expertise not only helped him, but competitors too, who followed him on the hard trail to ensure they don't make any mistakes. Competitors were challenged by the tricky canyons in the first 40 km of the stage made only tougher by the dunes that followed.

It's further claimed that Stan Lee's road manager, Max Anderson, who has a felony conviction, arranged the meeting for Stan Lee with the masseuse, and when she arrived, she found them both intoxicated, and that "Stan was out of control, he groped her and asked her for sex which the woman refused". "He doesn't seem to care what people think of him, he's lost his filter".

The nursing company that employed the women, which the Daily Mail declined to name, confirmed that the female proprietor had received several complaints from nurses before parting ways with a year ago. Lallas, in a statement to the Mail Online, said that Lee categorically denied the allegations and meant to fight to protect his good name.

According to Mail Online, a "source with knowledge of the situation" said Lee had sexually harassed nurses, speaking to them inappropriately and groping some of them.

A new nursing company, Vitale Nursing Inc., has since stepped in to care for and had nothing but good things to say about the comic book creator. Lee, he added, had done "absolutely nothing wrong".
