The Weinstein effect continues, with comic-book legend Stan Lee as the latest celebrity to be accused of sexual misconduct. The Daily Mail is reporting that the 95 year old has been accused of groping his home-care nurses, exposing himself to and demanding oral sex from the women. Lee is claiming that this is an act of extortion, and his attornies have sent a cease and desist to the nursing company. His attorney, Tom Lallas, has offered the following statement: “Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character.”

From the Daily Mail:

Comic book legend Stan Lee has been hit with several allegations of sexual assault and harassment by nurses caring for him at his Hollywood Hills home, DailyMail.com can reveal.

The Marvel creator, 95, is alleged to have repeatedly groped and harassed a string of young female nurses employed to care for him.

He is said to have asked for oral sex in the shower, walked around naked and wanted to be ‘pleasured’ in the bedroom.

The nursing company which employs the women and caters for celebrities and high end clients is now in a legal dispute with icon Lee, DailyMail.com has learned.

But as yet no police complaint has been made and no lawsuits filed.

A lawyer representing Lee told DailyMail.com that Lee ‘categorically denies’ the ‘false and despicable’ allegations and fully intends to clear his ‘stellar good name’ and suggested the allegations could be part of a shakedown.

Lee, 95, is the former president and chairman of Marvel and co-created Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, the X-Men, Hulk among many other beloved comic book heroes.

 

While many comic buffs are reacting with shock and disappointment at the news, others are challenging the accusations, citing the Daily Mail’s reputation as a tabloid with little credibility. Other fans are wondering what this means for the release of The Black Panther, a highly anticipated movie that follows the adventures of the first black superhero. The action film is a huge step in the right direction for representation, and we hope that these allegations don’t hurt its performance in any way.
