What’s Going on with the Legendary Stan Lee?

Published

on

Stan Lee is a living legend, and an enduring creative icon even at 95 years old. Though he always seems positive and upbeat, some recent rumors about his health have fans worried, and some suggest that those closest to the Man of Ideas are using this opportunity to bleed him dry.

Troubles Signing His Own Name

A video emerged from the Silicon Valley Comic Con where the Marvel co-creator is clearly having some trouble writing his own name for autographs. His representative, Keya Morgan, can be heard numerous times almost spelling out “Stan Lee” while Lee appears completely devoid of energy. This seemed to justify rising concerns over Lee’s health and wellbeing. In February, he was hospitalized due to an irregular heartbeat. After that, TMZ released a video of him, revealing he’s fighting pneumonia and thanking his fans for their unparalleled support.

But Lee’s health wasn’t the only worrying sight which fans at Silicon Valley Comic Con witnessed. A few noticed something much more suspicious in nature.

Reportedly, after the event sold out, organizers continued to sell tickets for cash, leading to massive lines of eager fans. Stan Lee is not one to disappoint his admirers, and maybe this was what the organizers were counting on. According to multiple distraught fans, Lee wasn’t given proper breaks in-between signings and was even falling asleep between photos. “That man is a legend and you shuffled him around like he was a bag of money!” one comment read. What’s more worrying is that the event isn’t a one-off case, but rather represents a dubious thread that started when Lee’s wife Joan passed.

Elderly Abuse?

Many believe this to be a case of elderly abuse, carried out by those in Lee’s inner circle. Jerardo Olivarez, a former business associate of Lee’s daughter, allegedly fired Lee’s banker of 26 years within days of Joan’s death. Not only that, he’s been accused of tricking Lee into donating $300,000 to a phony charity organization which actually turned out to be a for-profit merchandising company. Lee’s daughter has been accused of being in on this and others shady schemes as well. Luckily, Lee has some of the most devoted fans in history, and some of them are famous themselves.

Kevin Smith’s Gesture

Kevin Smith reached out to Stan Lee, offering his help. After a report surfaced of Lee’s blood having been stolen and sold to sign comic books with for $500 a piece, Smith tweeted: “This is heartbreaking. We love you, Stan Lee. You are always welcome to come live with me – or please let us fans buy you a new place to live. We miss you, sir.” Others followed his example. But instead of grabbing these offers like a drowning man grabbing a stick, Lee responded in a different fashion.

What To Believe?

First, Lee posted a video on Twitter saying his relationship with his daughter has “never been better” and deemed the reports of her alleged ulterior motives “inaccurate” and “insulting.”  He even threatened with legal action in a second video for TMZ if the reports persisted:

“You people have been publishing the most hateful, harmful material about me, and about my friend Keya and some others,” he said. “Material which is totally incorrect, totally based on slander, totally the type of thing that I’m gonna sue your as* off [for] when I get a chance.”

It’s not clear if the whole thing is just an inflated conspiracy theory or something much darker. All fans can do for now is watch closely for other possible signs of misconduct and hope for their hero’s wellbeing.
