As expected, the late Stan Lee’s former business manager Keya Morgan has been arrested. In comic book land, a villain as awful as Keya might face justice by getting blasted into space or frozen in a block of Hulk shit. But in this story, justice means getting slapped with a pair of handcuffs and a mug shot, while the news blasts headlines about your arrest for elder abusing one of Marvel’s most beloved characters.
It’s being reported that dearly departed comic book legend and cameo King, Stan Lee‘s former business manager, Keya Morgan has been charged with allegedly abusing Stan who died at 95. He’s been charged with five counts in a Los Angeles court and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. Welp David Eason: Keya just took your place as evil asshole of the moment. Heat’s off of you for this week… at least from social media.
Just because Armie Hammer may SEEM like the guy from a really wealthy family (he is), it doesn’t mean he’s talking their money. What a moron, right? Armie is 32, but he sure sounds 92 sometimes. In a recent interview with British GQ, Armie says he’s not a normal millennial, he’s a cool millennial who gets the dry heaves when he sees avocado toast on a menu. He didn’t say that, but he may as well have since it’s about the only thing he didn’t bitch about. He walked back an apology and maintains people were tacky with their Stan Lee tributes on social media AND wants to remind you he doesn’t take a red cent from his wealthy family.
Oh, that Bill Maher. He’s gone and done it now. The man who didn’t understand that using the n-word in jest was super-problematic wrote a blog post pissing on comic book fans for overly mourning the passing of Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee. He also insinuated that adults who read comic books are maturity-challenged losers who refuse to grow up. Well, that mouthy bastard has gone and pissed off geeks. That’s one segment of the population that you don’t want on your ass. The evil ones among us chase celebrities off of social media, topple movies by messing with their Rotten Tomatoes score, and will come to your house to protest while cosplaying Zatanna from Justice League. Your quaint little talking heads whinefest will be a smoking hole in the ground, hunty. Now, if you’ll pardon me, I need to squeeze into my Zatanna costume and go protest on Bill’s lawn.
Yesterday the news broke that comic book legend Stan Lee had passed, and many famous people paid their digital respects. I was expecting many tweets playing off his catchphrase “Excelsior!“, but I saw a lot more pictures go up of famous people posing with Stan himself. This didn’t bother me, but it bothered Armie Hammer.
If I’m going to write about the news that comic book legend Stan Lee has died, I may as well include a picture of Hulkbuster crotch.
Stan Lee, who I thought would live until the end of eternity, is now making his way to the great big Comic-Con in the afterworld after he died today in Los Angeles. Stan’s daughter tells TMZ that he was taken by ambulance from his home in the Hollywood Hills to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center this morning, and that’s where he died. He was 95 years old.
