The creative genius that is Stan Lee the man who brought us MARVEL superheroes files a lawsuit for 1 billion to POW! Ent. for damages. Filed on Tuesday at LA court Stan states that the company forged his signature on legal documents.
In an article found on CNN, POW! CEO Shane Duffy alongside Gill Champion as co-founder have been alleged to have “conspired and agreed to broker a sham deal to sell POW! to a company in China and fraudulently steal Stan Lee’s identity, name, image, and likeness” As POW! was being sold to Hong Kong’s Camsing International in 2017.
In response to Lee’s allegations, Duffy and Champion denies them and adds “they are completely without merit”. Also adding that they didn’t have any rights over Stan Lee’s work which leads them to wonder if Stan Lee is behind the issue.
