The iconic former editor-in-chief and face of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, 95, has been accused of sexually abusing the nursing staff who tended to the entertainment icon, but Lee’s lawyer claims the co-creator of Spider-Man is the victim of a shakedown.
In an explosive bombshell report, The Mail Online claims that Lee allegedly groped and harassed a string of young female nurses who were hired to provide health care for the nonagenarian. Stan “The Man” Lee, who began his career as Stanley Lieber before finding success in the 1960s with the upstart Marvel Comics Group, now stands accused of a multitude of sins by the company that previously supplied him with a steady stream of young nurses to tend to his medical needs.
Reportedly, Lee is said to have asked for oral sex while showering and asked to be “pleasured” in the bedroom of his $20 million Hollywood Hills home. The comics’ legend icon allegedly walks around his mansion naked and is alleged to have groped the nurses. His frank sex talk reportedly used expletives that would make the Hulk blush.
Lee who has amassed a fortune of at least $50 million dollars over his long association with Marvel is named as executive producer on the blockbuster super-hero flicks. He also appears in humorous cameos within the films.
A rep for the nursing company, whose name was not disclosed in the shocking report, confirmed that its owner had received numerous complaints from nurses who had tended Lee. Yet, to date, no police complaint has been made nor have any lawsuits been filed.
According to the report, Lee’s attorney Tom Lallas has sent a cease and desist letter to the nursing company, saying, “Mr. Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong.”
