In a new video posted by TMZ and copyright Keya Morgan, Stan Lee's Minister of Propaganda and sole controller of his communications, Lee called out media outlets that are claiming that Morgan and others are taking advantage of him. He claims that he's not being mistreated and suggests someone might have a personal vendetta. He's prepared to hire "the best and most expensive lawyers" he can to sue the pants off any media outlets who continue the claim.
This video doesn't answer questions that Lee is being kept isolated by Morgan, Jerry Olivarez (a former business partner of Lee and his daughter J.C.), and J.C.'s lawyer Kirk Schenck. In February, Lee signed a document, notarized with his former lawyer Tom Lallas, stating that he believes Olivarez, Morgan, and Schenck to be people with "bad intentions" who'd inserted themselves into his family's life in order to gain control of his wealth.
Fans recently voiced their concern over Lee's health after his appearance at Silicon Valley Comic Con, where he was unnaturally reserved and needed to have his name spelled to him during a signing.
Using the latest in modern video technology, The Outhouse was able to decipher the Morse Code hidden in Lee's blinking during the video. Revealed to the public for the first time, the message states, "Fuck Jack Kirby."
The transcript of the TMZ video is below.
"Hi, this is Stan Lee and I'm calling on behalf of myself and my friend Keya Morgan. Now, you people have been publishing the most hateful, harmful material about me and about my friend Keya and some others. Material which is totally incorrect, totally based on slander, totally the type of thing that I'm going to sue your ass off when I get a chance.
You have been accusing me and my friends of doing things that are so unrealistic and unbelievable that I don't know what to say. It's as though you suddenly have a personal vendetta against me and against the people I work with. Well I want you to know I'm going to spend every penny I have to put a stop to this and to make you sorry that you've suddenly gone on a one man campaign against somebody with no proof, no evidence, no anything but you've decided that people were mistreating me and therefore you are going to publish those articles.
I'm going to get the best and most expensive lawyers I can and I want you to know if you don't stop these articles and publish retractions, I am going to sue your ass off."
Edit: Our lawyers made us add that we in no way are claiming that Lee is being taken advantage of and he totally created Spider-Man all on his own.
