Amidst the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements that took over Golden Globe Awards 2018 recently, a shocking accusation against Marvel legend Stan Lee has been reported by Daily Mail.

The UK-based news outlet revealed that nurses have accused the comic-book writer of sex abuse and sexual misconduct. As shocking as the allegations sound, the 95-year-old denied all charges.

According to the report, young in-house nurses working at his West Hollywood home accuse the celebrity of demanding oral sex, groping the nurses, walking around the house naked and wanted to be "pleasured" in the bedroom. A series of complains from the employees led to the current situation.

"Stan is an old man who has seemingly lost his way. He doesn't seem to care what people think of him, he's lost his filter. There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. He finds it funny," a source close to the situation said.

"He walks around naked and is vulgar towards the women, he asks them for oral sex in the shower and wants to be pleasured in his bedroom. He uses the word p***y and f**k in their presence," the insider added.

Despite the accusations, no police complaint or lawsuits have been filed by the nursing company. However, Daily Mail reports that Lee and the nursing company have entered a legal dispute with the Marvel star accusing them of defaming him.

Lee's official statement was released shortly after the news broke out through his lawyer Tom Lallas. As reported by, the statement reads: "Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character.

We are not aware of anyone filing a civil action, or reporting these issues to the police, which for any genuine claim would be the more appropriate way for it to be handled. Instead, Mr. Lee has received demands to pay money and threats that if he does not do so, the accuser will go to the media.

Mr Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong."

Hoping to protect the identity of the employees, the nursing company will not reveal names of the accusers.

Although the case is still developing, Marvel fans think that the accusations against the Spider-Man, Iron Man, X-Men, Hulk and many comic characters creator come a month before Black Panther's release and the coincidence is eerie.
