Now 95-year-old Stan Lee, who created Spider-Man, the Hulk, Iron Man and the X-Men, has been accused of inappropriate behaviour by nurses who looked after him.
It's being claimed that the OAP reportedly asked his nurses to perform oral sex on him and that he walked naked around them.
A representative has confirmed that there's been "several complaints" made against the man who helped turn Marvel comics into a giant in the industry.
But the lawyer has now said that Stan Lee "categorically denies” the allegations, claiming that they're “false and despicable".
He also claimed that the allegations were an attempt at extortion and blackmail.
He said: “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.”
