Marvel visionary Stan Lee's puck drop at an upcoming Arizona Coyotes pregame has been cancelled, AZCentral reports.

On December 20th the owner of the nursing company received a "cease and desist" letter from Lee's attorney, Tom Lallas.

The creator of the famous Marvel comics, Stan Lee, 95, has been accused of sexual misbehavior by nurses who were taking care of him.

Following the incident, she apparently made an official complaint to Stan Lee's representatives, which have kicked off a whole bunch of behind the scenes meetings as they work out what to do.

Lee is the former president and chairman of Marvel and co-created Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, the X-Men, Hulk among many other beloved comic book heroes.

Lee's nurses claimed he requested oral sex in the shower and to be "pleasured" in his bedroom.

Stan Lee is estimated to be worth around $50 million from his involvement in several Marvel comic franchises.

And when they land on the top of the podium, they'll be wearing intensely warm gear that was unveiled Tuesday by Nike and the U.S. Overall, Emrick has worked five Olympic Games for NBC, two for CBS and one for TNT, including sports other than hockey.

Daily Mail further reported that a rep for the nursing company confirmed that its owner has received several complaints from nurses about Lee's behaviour and that the company parted ways with the comics creator at the end of previous year. During the massage, she stated that Lee groped her several times and wanted a happy ending.

Lee's legal team says that he completely denies the allegations and that this is merely a "shakedown" - an attempt to extort money from an elderly, wealthy man.

The source added: 'While people might think Stan is a frail and fragile old man, that's not the case.

'She claims Stan was out of control, he groped her and asked her for sex which the woman refused.

"Mr Lee categorically denies these allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character".

Lee's wife of 69 years passed away in 2017 at 93-years-old. Home care nurses are particularly vulnerable, since they work in a person's home, and they deserve to be heard just as much as wealthy actresses.

"Various anonymous individuals have attempted to extort money from Mr". Lallas said, "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".
