    Oh dear God. I'm torn. This could be true and truly despicable. But on the other hand it's Stan Lee, man. Well, let's just wait and see. A part of me isn't surprised as well but also still a bit shocked. Probably need to to process it.

    Oh, boy... I'm gonna do myself a favor and not have any idols in the entertainment industry from now on, just in case.

    Also, his lawyer suggests this could a part of a ''shakedown''... I wonder if they're implying this has something to do with the Disney/FOX deal.

    EDIT: So, apparently shakedown is also just another word for ''extortion/blackmail''. That's probably what they meant.

    Don't believe it. Bad to say in to days world I know. But this more then likely a money grab. Which is way past fashionable in todays world.


    Besides that ...Wikipedia banned the original article source for being unreliable. Let that set in. WIKIPEDIA banned the source. I mean really?

    The Daily Mail is generally not considered a reputable news source. They will print pretty much anything without checking, and earlier this year Wikipedia banned Daily Mail articles as citations.

    Am I saying this must be false? Of course not. Not all their stories turn out to be fake. Just that I think most people are waiting for another source to pick up the story before they start reacting to it, which is why there hasn't been all that much reaction so far.

    The source plus the whole no police report or lawsuit makes this thing really fishy. It doesn't help that like what Lee's lawyer alluded to, he is a pretty prime target for someone trying to scam money, as we've seen fairly recently.

    I hope that the truth comes out and that justice is done, whether that means that Lee is is proven innocent or not.

    It could be for Marvel. He created most of their big names.

    Hands on, true believers!

    Joking aside, it is too early to say. But, this might be a smear attack. (Not a fan of Lee. But, he deserves the benefit of the doubt.)

    Maybe it's not true. But if it is, then nobody should expect a man in his 90s to be just the same mentally as he ever was. Medicine is keeping people alive longer, but it's not keeping the various forms of cognitive decline at bay. So that is going to be an increasing problem, especially among people who keep working into very advanced ages. For example, there are a lot of people in Congress who should retire but won't. Dianne Feinstein will be 86 next year when she runs for re-election. She has said, "My mind is fine," but the fact that she needs to say that means it's time for her to go.

    John Lasseter was the architect of Pixar and Disney cut ties with him so they can do the same with Stan Lee. No muss no fuss.

    It's the Daily Mail, so be skeptical if you wish, but also keep in mind that the man is 95 years old and could very likely have dementia. These kinds of actions happen often with people who suffer from dementia. Just because he seems like he's all there during convention appearances don't mean much, as you have your good days and your bad days.
