Stan Lee Sues POW! For ONE BILLION DOLLARS, True Believers

Stan Lee has had a rough year and it's only May. He's been accused of sexual abuse, had his blood stolen for profit, and had to be told how to spell his own name during a signing. But Lee is fighting back on at least one front. He's suing his former business partners at POW! Entertainment for $1 billion.

Among those named are current CEO Shane Duffy and Gill Champion for claims including that they either tricked him into signing over the exclusive rights to his name, image and likeness or forged his signature.

POW! was sold to the Chinese company Camsing in 2017 and Lee claims he was in poor health, dealing with vision loss due to macular degeneration and grieving over the death of his wife, Joan. He claims he had no idea a sale was in the works.

And now there's a $1 billion lawsuit hanging in the balance.
