Things have sadly not been kind to Stan Lee with recent events and his shadowing to the public. Now to add insult to injury, things have taken to a point of stealing his blood samples.
According to TMZ, an unnamed former business associate is suspected to stealing Lee’s blood through a forged documentation back in October. This document allowed the hospital authority to draw “several vials” of blood. Lee was reported to be very faint and dizzy upon the withdrawals.
The next part of the story just gets weirder and somewhat malicious. His blood was then stolen by said associate and used to ink signatures of Black Panther comic books at Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. in Las Vegas. They are advertised as “Hand-Stamped Signature of STAN LEE using Stan Lee’s Solvent DNA Ink” and are going between $250 for blue and $500 for gold.
Now, it seems some good was done as the comics were instantly put down upon realization of what actually happened later on today. Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N.’s legal representative Evan Michailidis had this to say:
“We’re a retail store which purchased product from Hands of Respect LLC and DLK Brand Consulting LLC that appeared certified and obtained with authorization. The books were removed from our shelves immediately.”
Sources are stating this same individual in question is the same associate of stealing $300,000 from Lee’s bank account as well as an additional $850,000 to buy a condo. Stan’s legal team is under careful decision making on confronting this individual with charges.
Here’s hoping proper justice is served. To steal a 95-year old man’s money and blood is just downright unjust.
