Stan Lee-Another Victim of Elder Abuse?

Stan Lee may have created a superhero universe, but he had no superhero to protect him from alleged elder abuse, according to a recent article in the Washington Post. As Stan Lee’s ex-caregiver is arrested, last year’s videos provide an illuminating lens on his elder-abuse case explains that Mr. Lee's "adviser and confidant" had  been arrested and "appeared in [an Arizona court] on a charge of being a fugitive of justice,  ... accused of 'fleeing California charges of fiduciary elder abuse....'”   According to the article, the charges filed in California include "theft, embezzlement, forgery/fraud against an elder and false imprisonment of an elder."  One twist in this case is a video made by Mr. Lee some time ago in which he claimed he was not a victim of elder abuse.  Now there are claims that the video wasn't done of his own free will.  You can view the video in the article.

All I can say is stay tuned....
