The actress and daughter of Stan Lee, Joan Celia Lee (J.C.), has sued POW! Entertainment. According to J.C., the lone heir of Stan Lee, her ownership in POW! Entertainment has decreased as a result of a number of “suspicious transactions,” Per reports. She is requesting access to the American media company’s books and records in order to provide an explanation for why her purported 45% ownership has allegedly decreased to 15%. J.C. also alleges that she was not paid for the sale of Stan Lee items and for a $125,000 yearly income that was supposed to be given after her father’s passing. She also filed a lawsuit against POW! Entertainment in 2019 over the use of her father’s name and likeness, which has since been dropped. The parent firm of POW!, Camsing International Holdings, is also accused in the latest case of intending to transfer its ownership interest in the business. J.C. said the action was brought about by the denial of her request for access to corporate records.
This case is not the first legal dispute POW! has had over the use of Stan Lee’s name and image. Stan Lee sued POW! Entertainment for an astounding $1 billion in 2018, just months before he passed away, claiming that the company’s CEO and co-founder “tricked the comic creator into signing over exclusive rights to his name and likeness or outright forgeried his signature.” As an illustration of why he would not give up the rights to POW! and Camsing, Lee’s lawsuit cited his refusal to provide Disney the rights to his name in 2009 when the studio purchased Marvel’s movie rights for $4 billion. Before Lee passed away in 2018, his daughter was also in the news after a thorough investigation revealed J.C. had assaulted her father on a regular basis, which was defined as both physical and psychological elder abuse. The report said that J.C. habitually spent $20,000 to $40,000 per month and that during rages, she would seize her father’s head and slam it into the back of the chair.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
