Stan Lee in US$1 billion lawsuit against company he started

Lee also points to the fact he even refused to give Disney the right to use his name when he struck a multi-billion dollar deal with the movie company.

The production company was sold to the Chinese company Camsing previous year, but Lee argues that he was unaware of the negotiations and that he never would have knowingly signed his name on a document that gave away his name.

The 95-year-old comic book writer claims the company, which he co-founded, conspired with two of its officers, CEO Shane Duffy and co-founder Gill Champion, to steal his identity, reported Deadline. Entertainment to Camsing International, a Chinese-based company. "Inc. the exclusive use of Lee's identity, name, image and likeness".

Lee has denied those claims too.

In his complaint, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Lee lays out the terms of his argument. Things were dialed up to 11 once Lee sued his former manager for fraud and abuse.

The suit draws attention to the death of Lee's wife last July, and his degenerative eye condition which has caused his poor eyesight, suggesting he could not have read the documents.

He said the presence of a group, comprising five members, was confirmed through HSTI imagining. However, the frequent ceasefire violations by Pakistan were going on along the LoC.

Lee claims he doesn't recall anyone reading the document to him (which is essential as Lee's macular degeneration has rendered him legally blind).

"In addition, POW! took control of Lee's personal social media accounts, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, thereby impersonating Lee before a combined 15 million followers worldwide", the complaint reads. "While the Illegitimate Document purports to contain Lee's signature, Lee never knowingly signed it".

"From now on, I will depend on you, my dear fans, to protect and defend me", he added.

"I just want to tell you I love your comments on Twitter - I don't know how much I have been missing now that I see them", he said. This latest lawsuit is just the latest in a string of odd occurrences in Lee's personal and professional life. "You guys are my true superheros", posted his account recently.

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.
