Last week we learned that 95-year-old comic book legend Stan Lee was fighting his greatest foe yet: a villain named elder abuse. Stan had claimed that his former business associate and his nurse had been stealing Stan’s blood to fill up pens and sell them to collectors. Stan also alleged that said former business associate had stolen thousands of dollars from him. The Hollywood Reporter also published a story implying that Stan Lee has been mysteriously losing money, and that no one is looking out for him, not even his daughter J.C. Lee.
Major comic book nerd Kevin Smith heard this, and tweeted that he will come to the rescue and save Stan Lee. Specifically, that Stan Lee is welcome to move into Kevin Smith’s house.

Kevin wasn’t the only one to offer to help Stan Lee. Seth Green also piped up, as did The Guild’s Felicia Day.

This all comes after a particularly sad appearance at the Silicon Valley Comic Con over the weekend, in which a frail and tired Stan was reportedly coached on how to spell his name during an autograph signing. Forget about Kevin Smith; where the hell is T’Challa? Please someone get a message to Wakanda, and let the operator know his creator needs him immediately.
I don’t know if Kevin’s home is the best place for Stan to live. Kevin is still in recovery from a heart attack, so he can’t protect Stan the way Stan needs protecting. I really think the best option here is for Kevin to buy Stan Lee a new place to live. Preferably one with a nice therapy pool for Stan to relax in, a nurse who won’t steal his blood, and some kind of force field around the perimeter to warn of approaching vultures.
