4 – He almost left writing comics
At the beginning of the 1960s, comics were considered very childish, and for some editors it meant they should be as simple as possible to make them comprehensible. Stan Lee disagreed with this logic. When DC released the comedy series "Justice League," editor Martin Goodman asked Marvel to create a team of heroes competing for the contest.
Not satisfied with the way the publishing creations were directed, Lee decided that the story of his new Fantastic Four team will be full of conflicts between characters and unlike anything ever seen. The comics were successful and a new format created by the artist, which was incorporated into other Marvel creations, like X-Men and Avengers.

8 – Already accused of harassment
At the beginning of 2018, the British Boulevard Boulevard Daily Mail published a story that Stan Lee would harass several nurses hired to take care of him at home. "The 95-year-old creator allegedly bothered and harassed a group of young nurses who were hired to take care of him," the paper said. "He would have asked to take oral sex when he was showering and walked naked around the house."
In this case, the vehicle further suggests that the company that the nurses have hired will sue Lee. "We do not know of any litigation or termination of these questions by the police, about appropriate actions for any legitimate request," said the lawyers of the artist. "Instead, Mr Lee has received several cash payments and threats that if he does not go on, the woman who blames him will reveal everything to the media, and Mr. Lee will not be blackmailed or deceived, and he will not give money because he has done nothing wrong."

In February 2018, another 1.4 million dollars were stolen from the artist's savings. At that time several family workers were dismissed.
One of the suspects is former partner Lee and his daughters, who helped them with the coordination of Hands of Respect. It is assumed that in October 2017 the businessman produced medical documents and instructed the writer's sister to perform a blood test. The man would sign Stan Lee's signature with his own blood in various signed codecs, which would sell for exaggerated amounts.
