Stan Lee Files $1B Lawsuit Against POW! Entertainment for "Stealing" His Name and Likeness

In this latest suit, Lee claims that Olivarez, along with Duffy and Champion, requested he sign a non-exclusive license with POW! for the use of his name and likeness in connection with creative works owned by the company. "The exclusive use of Lee's identity, name, image, and likeness ... and each of them knew that their objective was unlawful and they meant to aid each other in achieving that unlawful objective", it added. "Inc. the exclusive use of Lee's identity, name, image and likeness". He's now suing his ex-business manager Jerardo Olivarez for fraud, while vials of his blood were used for signatures on comics in Las Vegas without him knowing. Lee claims he got conned into an agreement.

Camsing acquired POW! in 2017, and Lee claims that two POW! officers, CEO Shane Duffy and co-founder Gill Champion, failed to disclose the full terms of the acquisition to Lee before the deal was done.

Lee's attorney Jonathan Freund has denied the allegations to the Chicago Tribune newspaper. He even refused to give it to Disney.

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.

The comic book creator added that he doesn't recall anyone reading the "illegitimate document" to him and, because of his advanced macular degeneration (he was declared legally blind in 2015), could not have read it himself.

Corroborating what Lee has been discussing on Twitter, the comic book mogul also claims POW! took control of his social media accounts and has been impersonating him. If someone had read the document to Lee, the suit adds, "he would not have knowingly signed it".

"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.

Lee is in the news again with a new law suit, for 1 billion dollars, against POW! His name is described as his most important and valued possession in the suit.

A detailed exposé in The Hollywood Reporter last month alleged that Lee has been the victim of elder abuse at the hands of his daughter J.C. and others who have sought to profit from his fame and fortune. This latest lawsuit is just the latest in a string of odd occurrences in Lee's personal and professional life.
