Stan Lee sued by massage therapist for alleged sexual misconduct

A massage therapist is suing Stan Lee of Marvel Comics fame for sexual assault and battery, accusing him of inappropriate touching and misconduct during two sessions previous year in Chicago.

Lee's convicted felon former assistant, Mac "Max" Anderson, arranged the massage, according to the complaint, which also names him as a defendant.

Carballo claims that Lee apologised through her employer and she returned for a second massage appointment the following day, during which she employed a massage technique using the feet instead of hands.

This is not the first time Lee has been accused of sexually inappropriate behavior.

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.

Carballo was initially fearful that complaining about Lee's actions would negatively affect her career, according to the law firm representing her.

'After seeing other women fight to be treated with dignity and respect, I decided, me too. In a strongly worded statement, Lee's attorney denied the accusations and instead claimed that Lee was victim of an extortion attempt, with the accusers threatening to go the the media with false accusations unless Lee paid a substantial amount of money over. Even so, Carballo admitted that she still feels "nervous and afraid", though it had died down a bit because of the people who are behind her.
