Page Six- Comic book legend Stan Lee has been accused of groping and harassing the nurses who care for him at his home in Los Angeles. According to the Daily Mail, the nursing company is currently in a legal dispute with the 95-year-old Marvel creator after nurses claimed he asked for oral sex in the shower and to be “pleasured” in his bedroom.

“He doesn’t seem to care what people think of him, he’s lost his filter,” a source told the tabloid. “There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. He finds it funny.” The source added, “He’s also very handsy and has groped some of the women, it’s unacceptable behavior, especially from an icon like Stan.”

FUUUUUCK! Why, Stan, why?! Through all of the sexual harassment takedowns, through the storm of them that hit us in 2017, none of MY heroes were accused. None that I could remember off the top of my head, at least. So this one, this hurts. Stan Lee is at the forefront of Marvel Comics, and is responsible for A LOT of the characters I grew up reading, watching, and fanaticizing about. I’ve spent countless hours of my life with Spider-Man, with Iron Man, with Captain America, The Hulk, Thor…hell, I JUST blogged about Black Panther today! He’s DIRECTLY tied to every single Marvel movie to ever come out, not just in that he’s the creator, but he’s got cameos*! Hearing this shit about the way he’s treating his nurses that care for him is gonna hinder every single one of those because I’ll be thinking about how scummy a human being he seems to be from this! Asking these women looking after his well being to blow him? Groping them? C’mon dude, what the fuck?

His lawyer is firmly denying all allegations, and the nursing company he’s now using has nothing but good things to say about him, so fingers crossed that they’re coming after our man with lies, but things certainly don’t look great right now. He is 95 years old as well, and could have kind of dementia, but I’m not going to make excuses here, especially when he’s seemed EXTRA competent and aware at Comic Cons.

“Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character,” his lawyer said in a statement to the site. “We are not aware of anyone filing a civil action, or reporting these issues to the police, which for any genuine claim would be the more appropriate way for it to be handled. Instead, Mr. Lee has received demands to pay money and threats that if he does not do so, the accuser will go to the media. Mr. Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong.”

Meanwhile, a rep for the new nursing company working for Lee said he has been “polite, kind and respectful” to their staff.

*Luckily a lot of his cameos are so minuscule they can be edited out of the flicks if need be.
