Stan Lee’s former manager has pleaded not guilty to charges of elder abuse against the Marvel Comics legend.
Keya Morgan is accused of stealing more than $100,000 in goods and property from the superhero creator, whose estate was worth an estimated $50m (£39m).
The New York-based memorabilia collector also faces five counts of elder abuse, including false imprisonment, fraud and forgery. He denies all of the charges.
[…] Los Angeles police said in a statement last month that in June 2018, Mr Morgan removed Lee from his Hollywood Hills home late at night and took him to an apartment in Beverly Hills in a bid to convince the comic book creator that he was in danger.
Lee’s family obtained a restraining order against Mr Morgan after the incident.
He surely never even told Lee’s relatives and buddies he was moving him, which only compounds Morgan’s image as an abuser and criminal now. And that’s why his career in memorabilia should now be over. Morgan would do well to just change to a guilty plea, and take responsibility for wrongdoing.
