Marc Toberoff Alleges Stan Lee Threatened His Own Brother Larry, In Jack Kirby Appeal

How ugly is this?

As part of Marc Toberoff’s appeal against Marvel Comics on behalf of the estate of Jack Kirby, over gaining copyright of the likes of X-Men, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor and The Avengers, the paperwork goes straight for the Stan Lee jugular.

They state that Marvel’s case, that Jack Kirby’s contribution to Marvel during the sixties was work for hire, relies solely on Stan Lee’s testimony, accepted unquestioned, while contradictory witnesses from the same time period were dismissed. That Stan Lee was paid large sums by Disney for his role in this. And that Stan threatened his own brother over whether or not he would testify for Marvel in the trial.

This is hardcore stuff, and will no doubt receive condemnation and contradiction from Marvel and Stan Lee. But it seems, as far as the sppeal courts go, the gloves are off. Expect Marvel to play the same way…
