Re: Stan Lee Turns 95

So who do you believe? Is Stan delusional at this point and too elderly to know what is going on? Or does he really know what is going on?

He seems pretty alert and literate there considering his age. But many elderly people can seem alert and still not know what is truly going on around them.

I feel that he's being manipulated by Keya Morgan in the same way Fox News manipulate the elderly into parroting things. Morgan sounds to be a con artist, who doesn't know shit about the comic book business but knows that Stan is worth lots of money. I feel the people at Marvel should get involved since this is kinda bouncing on their laps and creating bad publicity for everyone involved.

He seems alert and literate when he's talking in the videos he's made recently, but he may not be that way throughout the whole day. He likely gets very tired at the signing and photo ops.

If you can imagine even more youthful people like us having to sit in a chair for several hours at a time and doing nothing else but signing your name to what ever is put in front of you. It would get pretty mind numbing and monotonous after a while. Same thing with the photo ops having to do nothing but sit there in a chair and do nothing but smile every 5-10 seconds while having a flash go off in your eyes numerous times a minute. It's easy to see why your mind could freeze up and forget what you doing for a minute.

He was likely being manipulated by his previous employee(s) as well. I think Stan thrives on feeling wanted and needed. His late wife eluded to that in an interview with her that's up on youtube. She said he would never retire and if he did he would die.

A lot of people keep saying Marvel should get involved. Stan isn't employed by Marvel anymore though and they have no authority to get involved or attempt to control his affairs without him going to them and asking for help.

At a hundred bucks a scribble, I'd do it full time, 40 hours a week.

At $100 a signature, I'd sign 15 hours straight for just one weekend. At about 6 signatures per minute I'd have $1.8 million in the bank. I could invest that and retire with a very comfortable income for the rest of my life.

Re: Stan Lee Turns 95

I thought I had read he said he was done appearing at Cons a couple of years ago.

He was doing his "final" appearances in 2017. But like furniture stores that do "going out of business" sales or musicians that do "final tours", it's not alway so. It's all about how much money making another appearance will generate for that celebrity.

Two years ago they were advertising it as his last signing at NY Comic Con.

It was VERY vague the way they worded it. Many of us standing in line thought it was his last signing period. It was later clarified by some of his people.

Mark Hamill was getting over $300 for his signature last year at NYCC.
