He was conscious of his creative works or identity that we must say whether Mr Lee is behind this issue. POW's substantial shareholder and always with his daughter, The terms of the agreements that he signed are clearly understood. The evidence, including Mr Lee's statements and behavior, is very large and we look forward to his presentation in court. "

CNN has reached Lee for comments.

The investigative piece at The Hollywood Reporter follows elder abuse associated with Lee, which is 95.

Keya Morgan, Lee's business partner and close friend, told CNN on Wednesday that Lee is in desperate need of his wife and is now better at filing the conversations.

Morgan said Lee did not even sell the unlimited rights to his image to Disney in 2009, when the company bought Marvel Entertainment for $ 4 billion.

"It's much better because it now feels it's on a road to get its own back," Morgan said. "Stan wouldn't want anyone to have his most valuable possessions, that is his identity."

A tweet from Lee's official Twitter account on Tuesday referred to identity theft.

"Help! Someone has abducted my Facebook and Instagram," read the post. "I want everyone to know that anyone who is writing is fraudulent and that I am impersonating it. How can I bring them back? Can you help people?"
