Marvel creator Stan Lee, 95, is accused of groping nurses and demanding oral sex

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: 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.

1. Feeble

Sadly, nurses get this kind of behavior frequently from older, feeble-minded male patients. The nurses are trained to deal with it, and it doesn't affect their job status or anything else. It's highly doubtful that a 95-year old man could perform, even if he did get lucky. (He's not going to get lucky.)

12. So now any senior in care gets accused too... Well especially if they are rich/famous...

Talk about shameful, so much for professionalism. Sigh...

3. Although this is not to excuse the behavior...

...it might be a sign of senile dementia. Of course, if this spurs allegations of similar behavior from his younger years, all bets are off.

22. If he is senile, it is an excuse for his behavior, since he has lost his mind and the people who are

 

making this public are really low-life fuckers. This is a sad situation that if you live long enough you too will lose your mental function.

24. though if continues acting, public speaking, etc

 

there's no argument to be made that he's out of his mind.

Or it could be what he says: An extortion attempt.

Even though I'm a Kirby guy and have made my share of jabs at Stan over the years for the way he treated Jack and Ditko, this story seems fishy.

Lee has been involved in the industry since the 1940s, has met thousands of fans and has worked over many women and we're not hearing anything until now?
Until something more credible than the Daily Mail reports this, or evidence of a pattern turns up, I find this hard to believe and give the old guy the benefit of the doubt.

5. This is sad

He may have harassed women for many years she years ago -- back when women refrained from speaking up.

Now, either repeating past horrid behavior, or perhaps feels some strange license to do so due to senility.

Bet caretakers run into this kind of crap more often than we know.

Have a friend of a friend whose husband (a jerk) is in early 90's and though severely stroke-impaired solicits (with garbled language and motions) every female caretaker who comes to their home do her job.

That is hardly a reputable mainstream news source for LBN purposes. A Google search only shows low quality tabloid coverage.

That alone should fire up the crap detector about that sleazy article.

9. Having worked in health care for over 35 years, I can state with certainy that this type

of behavior from elderly men in not uncommon. I believe it has to do with declining mental health. I think I've seen it all over the years.

25. This is true

 

There's a certain late, beloved liberal commentator, who, out of respect for his prime years and work, I wont mention the name - but I know someone who worked with him for decades and he said, in the last year or two of his elderly life, something clicked over in the guy and he got really grabby toward women and acting out of his until-then sterling character. It got to the point that they had to curtail or heavily monitor any time he was at a public event.

Yet people are believing this like it's fucking written in stone. And from the RW rag Daily Mail.

So nowadays, all you have to do is make an accusation, and the person is automatically guilty. Unless it's against some RW a-hole of course.

13. I have to wonder

I haven't seen Stan for a couple of years now. I know he now has a Brian Wilson-style guru who acts like a firewall between Stan and his friends when he can get away with it. These types seem to latch onto victims like lampreys, and Stan's wife died recently. Whether Stan's guy has good intentions or not, I have no idea. Stan sure as hell never acted like that around my wife and elder daughter, whom he called my "fabulous females (I can only concur)." What Stan DOES do is make wisecracks a mile a minute, and I can imagine some of them could be misinterpreted, maybe even conveniently, the wrong way if someone is looking to make a buck off of him. It certainly wouldn't be the first time someone has tried to milk him financially. Just read the history of Marvel.

I DO know that the man has a heart of gold, or at least used to. The allegations listed are NOTHING like the man I know. My grandfather had all his marbles up to when he died at age 102, so there is no reason to assume one way or the other what Stan's mental state is now, although a mutual friend had lunch with him last year and said he was the same old Stan Lee.

14. I think people are entitled to defending themselves without a trial by media.

The truth is, we have no way of knowing if these allegations are true or not.

26. That is fairly normal behavior for very old men. Their desire to play touchie feely is one of the

last to go, long after the main organ quits working. And once their inhibitions go, caring for them becomes an exercise in avoidance.
