    Stan Lee sues POW Entertainment

    POW Entertainment, founded by Stan Lee, Gill Champion, and Arthur Lieberman in 2001, is being sued by Stan Lee for 1 billion dollars USD.

    The allegations are primarily fraud on behalf of Champion and Lieberman in stealing Lee's identity publicly for financial gain, including business deals in China. In pursuit of this, Lee claims POW was in total control of his social media accounts and was posting to his followers as him.

    Lee claims this came about as he was made to sign documents after the loss of his wife combined with failing eyesight which made the contracts unreadable for him and/or without being able to really understand them.

    More to follow, I'm sure.

    Yeah. There's allegations of forgery or signature lifting to sign contracts Lee doesn't remember dealing with.

    Since he's remained pretty sharp in his years it'll probably be taken pretty seriously.

    I imagine he set it that high so it can be negotiated down to what he really wants.

    Maybe. If the contracts were signed last year he probably would've been negatively effected by the loss of his wife and inherent trust he had in his partners and might've just discovered this relatively late.

    But it's not exactly outside of Lee's methodology to play up the affable old goofy guy while playing a longer con.

    Last year some woman sued JPMorgan and the jury awarded her eight billion dollars. Sounds like a pretty decent check to me
