Stan Lee — a guiding creative force within the Marvel Comics Universe for more then 50 years — died early in the morning of Nov. 12 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, The National ENQUIRER learned from a family representative.
The characters in writer, editor and publisher Stan’s remarkable legacy include Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Captain America and others, which made him a singular figure in the comic-book world — a superhero in the flesh.
His late-in-life cameos in the increasingly popular movies based on his Marvel Comics characters elevated his cult status, while also making him a target. Lawsuits sought to claim shares of his estimated $50 million fortune.
Lee’s daughter, J.C. Lee, sought and was granted an elderly-abuse restraining order against her famous father’s former manager and caretaker, Keya Morgan, in July 2017, charging that Morgan kept her from contacting her dad and controlling the comic kingpin’s $50 million fortune.
But the Spider-Man creator insisted he was not the victim of abuse, that any claims of it are “slander.” He defended his manager, calling him “my friend Keya Morgan,” which totally confused his family and fans!
