Stanley "Stan Lee" Lieber, 95, is a famous comic book writer and former editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics credited with creating some of the greatest comic book characters of all time, including Spiderman, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and Black Panther. This coincided with the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo taking place.

Now, Maria Carballo, a massage therapist based in Cook County, has filed a complaint against Lee, and his assistant, Mac Anderson for five counts, including assault, battery, violation of the Illinois Gender Violence Act, emotional distress and civil conspiracy.

For the second massage, Carballo says Stan got to moaning and groaning which she responded by threatening to leave.

She claims she immediately left although Lee paid her $240 in cash.

PCB chairman Najam Sethi and chief executive Subhan Ahmed have been granted visas to travel to India after early confusion. The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, that will be hosted in England is set to kick-off with a high-octane match.

Carballo alleges that she was hired to give Lee two massages over the weekend of April 21, 2017. However, after her employer requested for her to do another massage session with Lee, who reportedly apologized, she went back the following day.

About 30 minutes into the massage, Carballo says she noticed Lee begin to fondle himself and that the sheets were wet around his groin area.

She reluctantly agreed but began using her feet instead of her hands for the massage, to keep more distance from Lee.

Carballo issued an official statement, in which she stated that the so-called #MeToo movement empowered her to file the sexual misconduct suit.

Nanar refinery project puts Shiv Sena-BJP on warring path
Why did these people corner huge land at Nanar? "This is nothing but a scam and corruption in land allotment", Thackeray said. But Thackeray said he will not allow the refinery to come up in Konkan and demanded moving it to Gujarat or Nagpur.

Naked, the nonagenarian hopped up from the massage table enraged, demanding the session continue, claims Carballo. But according to the lawsuit, within an hour he began his shenanigans again and Carballo reverted to massaging him with her feet due to discomfort.

Lee has faced a similar claim before. She got the $240 from him as payment and chose to leave.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Lee's attorney, Jonathan Freund, called the lawsuit "a shakedown" and says Lee denies the allegations.

The co-creator of iconic Marvel heroes, Lee has become the much loved public face of the company over the years; his cameo appearances in Marvel movies are always eagerly awaited, and his presence on many panels have brought great joy to many fans.
