Lee himself had filed a $1 billion suit against POW! in May of 2018 (see "Stan Lee Files $1 Billion Lawsuit"). In that suit, Lee alleged that the company had forged or otherwise fraudulently obtained exclusive rights to Lee’s name, image, and likeness, among other counts. Lee dropped the suit a few months later, and passed away in November 2018 (see "RIP Stan Lee, at 95").
