Stan Lee has been accused of sexual misconduct by nurses who had once been employed to care for the 95-year-old comic book writer and editor in his Los Angeles home.
Nurses accused Lee of walking around naked, asking for oral sex in the shower, and demanding to be pleasured in his bedroom, The Daily Mail reported. The site reports that the women alleging this behavior all work for the same company, but did not print the name of the company in an effort to protect the identities of the accusers.

An attorney for Lee said that his client "categorically denies" the "false and despicable" allegations and has full intent to defend his "stellar good name".
A new nursing company has since taken over to care for Lee at his home. When the issue wasn't resolved, the company parted ways with Lee towards the end of previous year - but the contentious battle was far from over.
The publication did not name the nursing company nor its owner, but quoted an unnamed source familiar with the situation that Lee "has lost his way". There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. According to the source, Lee finds the harassment to be amusing and does not care about how it affects the women.More news: Men: Deadpool director, Fox reportedly developing Kitty Pryde movie
The source added, "He's also very handy and has groped some of the women, it's unacceptable behaviour, especially from an icon like Stan". "'It appears the owner, who has nursed Stan herself, eventually decided enough was enough". Lee's legal team told one outlet that the claims are part of a scheme to extort money from him and defiantly stated that he has done nothing wrong. 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. Entertainment, said: "At POW!" The allegations include claims of Lee groping the women, requesting oral sex, and strolling around nude in front of them.
