Stan Lee is angry, and you won’t like Stan Lee when he’s angry. Over the past few weeks, there have been a few rumors regarding the Marvel legend’s personal life. Earlier this week, THR posted a report pretty much stating that no one around Lee had his best interests at heart and that these people were influencing his daughter to make very unsavory decisions regarding his assets.
This is all in addition to allegations of elder abuse against Lee. So thoroughly have these rumors permeated the industry that even filmmaker and podcast Kevin Smith offered to have Stan Lee live with him.

It seems like Stan Lee has had enough of all these rumors, and released a video where he set the record straight. He even went so far as to threaten to sue reporters who were posting the “shameful, harmful” material about those around him.
“Hi, this is Stan Lee, and I’m calling on behalf of myself and my friend Keya Morgan. Now you people have been publishing the most hateful, harmful material about me and about my friend Keya and some others. Material which is totally incorrect, totally based on slander, totally the type of thing that I’m going to sue your ass off [for] when I get a chance. You have been accusing me and my friends of doing things that are so unrealistic and unbelievable that I don’t know what to say. It’s as though you suddenly have a personal vendetta against me and against the people I work with. I want you to know I’m going to spend every penny I have to put a stop to this, and to make you sorry that you’ve suddenly gone on a one-man campaign against somebody with no proof, no evidence, no anything, but you’ve decided that people are mistreating me, and therefore you’re going to publish those articles. I’m going to get the best and most expensive lawyers I can, and I want to you know if you don’t stop these articles and publish retractions, I am going to sue your ass off.”
Given how much we’ve seen Stan Lee in the limelight on TV and at conventions, you think seeing him angry would be a common thing, but quite the opposite. Never before have I legitimately seen the man so infuriated by something.
