J.C. Lee, the daughter of the late Stan Lee, claims that Marvel and its parent company, the Walt Disney Company, have "treated my father worse" than anyone. In an interview with TMZ, Stan Lee's only child didn't mince words on her feelings about her father's business associates - and seems to have sided with Sony Pictures over Disney-Marvel in the unfolding disagreements about the cinematic Spider-Man.
"Marvel and Disney seeking total control of my father's creations must be checked and balanced by others who, while still seeking to profit, have genuine respect for Stan Lee and his legacy," Lee said. "Whether it's Sony or someone else's, the continued evolution of Stan's characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view."
"When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me," Lee continued. "From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency. In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney's executives."
