Stan Lee files lawsuit against former business partner, claims forgery

Stan Lee files lawsuit against former business partner, claims forgery

According to the lawsuit obtained by CNN, Pow!

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.

Lee, Champion, and Arthur Liberman formed Pow! Entertainment, the company he co-founded in 2001 for one billion dollars.

"From now on, I will depend on you, my dear fans, to protect and defend me", Lee said. Entertainment and two of its executives have conspired to steal his name, identity, and likeness without his consent.

The suit also alleged that Olivarez "convinced" Lee to set up a "false charity" called Hands of Respect, which the suit claims was nothing more than a vehicle to shift Lee's money to Olivarez. Either Duffy, Champion, Oliveraz [sic] or POW!

"The allegations are completely without merit". Entertainment. "The notion that Mr".

Lee, it is argued, would not have knowingly signed a document providing the exclusive right to use his identity. Lee is personally behind this lawsuit.

Lee is apparently planning on doing live streams to answer the "questions of my lovely fans". Lee's subsequent statements and conduct, is overwhelming and the Company looks forward to presenting it in court.

TheWrap has reached out to Camsing for comment on the suit. According to the lawsuit, Lee was unable to actually read the document due to macular degeneration, and he doesn't remember anyone reading it to him, suggesting that his signature may have been forged, copied or induced.

CNN was unsuccessful in attempts to reach Olivarez. "Lee's passing", Olivarez said. You are always welcome to come live with me - or please let us fans buy you a new place to live.

Though the comic universe he created has only gotten bigger-especially with the recent release of Avengers: Infinity War-Lee's legal and personal troubles have seemingly risen in the last few months, particularly following the death of his wife. And just days ago in May this year, China's Tianying Media struck a deal with POW! to bring Stan Lee's 1970s comic strip "The Virtue of Vera Valiant" to the big screen with a film titled "The Last Resort".

Keya Morgan, a business partner and close friend of Lee's, told CNN on Wednesday that Lee has grieved deeply for his wife and is now in a better frame of mind with the lawsuits having been filed.

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.
