|Stan Lee in happier days.
Whether you feel Stan Lee deserves all the credit or none of the credit for the success of Marvel and its characters (people still argue the degree of work he did and his actual impact), he for sure is an important person in Marvel's history and a human being who deserves dignity in his old age, as opposed to being treated like a cash-cow to suck dry (literally, as the blood incident shows) and on the receiving end of what clearly sounds like horrific elder abuse. Stan Lee may not be long for this world and due to those who helped protect him from the vultures either passing away or being fired by those without his best interests at heart its turned into a fiasco of so-called friends with long rapsheets or a daughter who sounds physically abusive and obsessed with getting as much moolah out of the ailing Lee as possible before he passes. It's incredibly sad, and a tragic way for Lee to have his last time on Earth spent. Hopefully us fans can do something to try to stop this before it gets more tragic, like popular director and known comic-lover Kevin Smith who has seen all this news and has offered to help how he can.
