Stan Lee Media Sues Marvel for $750 Million

Posted: January 27th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Stan Lee Media Sues Marvel for $750 MillionSubmit Comment
The long-running battle over Stan Lee's comic book characters is heating up, with the shareholders of a company bearing his name announcing a new lawsuit against Marvel Entertainment, Lee and others over profits.

The shareholders of Stan Lee Media Inc claim in a lawsuit to be filed in New York that Lee, creator of Spider Man, Ironman and Incredible Hulk, transferred all his interest in Marvel characters to SLMI. That entity was placed into bankruptcy by Stan Lee in 2001 and re-emerged in November 2006 with new shareholders, who claim they are owed as much as $750 million.

Lee denies the allegations and has filed his own $50 million lawsuit against SLMI claiming the company has hijacked his name and image and is thwarting his effort to develop such properties as "The Accuser" and "The Drifter" and others via his first-look deals with Disney and Virgin Comics.

As Ivan Drago said to Apollo Creed: You'll lose. SLMI better hope for an out of court settlement just to go away. Vultures.

i'll wait for more interesting articles...like the next trailer to a good movie....on the other hand that's pretty f*cked up that someone tries to sue you with your own name in it...but what does this matter...it's not like they're poor like most people in this country...besides...money isn't a big deal if you're on an island living for free like cast away or blue lagoon or sumthin
