Don't comic book nerds claim that the other guy, Jack Kirby actually created all the characters?

The extreme financial sanction imposed by the court for the Estate's effort to protect Stan Lee's legacy From Control and exploitation by an ex partner that Stan Lee detested and a Chinese Company That used his name to commit a billion dollar fraud in China is incomprehensible.


I see Trump's speechwriter has been dispensing legal advice.

Ehh - probably not honestly.  It is in fact almost entirely about a Chinese company that committed vast amounts of fraud, in China.  Those facts aren't so much in dispute.  What is in dispute are the terms of the agreement under which POW was formed and exactly what was going on with the purchase of POW rights that Camsing engaged in.  And those are the "We've already gone over this in court too many farking times" issues that the judge is dismissing.  Not to mention your odds of getting rational resolution to any sort of fraud case in China are usually expressed in negative numbers...

The ruling pretty much amounts to "Yeah, they did do bad shiat with it after they bought some rights - but that's already being adjudicated - and the terms of the agreement made in '98 doesn't allow reversion of rights or you taking control so... deal."  Pretty much like selling your company to Google, and then trying to sue to get it back when they do some horrible shiat with your app.  Well, you sold them those rights without any reversion clauses, so it sucks to be you (or in this case your heirs.)

Those facts aren't so much in dispute.

The national origin of the company and where the fraud was committed is immaterial.  It's merely included here as an anti-Asian dog whistle.

Hmm - I guess I'm too used to the coverage from last year?  The emphasis was always on the fact that it was a Chinese company because one of their points of contention was that the stuff that had gone down was mainly due to almost zero Chinese governmental oversight/cooperation.  I.e. the ball was dropped by China, not by Stan's people or the American side.

This doesn't render it impossible that they're dogwhistling as well of course - attorneys love 'happy' coincidences, but it is substantially more relevant than "It happened to take place with a Chinese company" would be.

From what I've heard, Stan's daughter was burning through his fortune even before he passed away. It was said that if she skipped her weekly shopping spree, store owners all along Rodeo Drive would call her up, asking if she's OK.

And revisionism aside, Stan really was a backstabbing POS in his own right. One of the first things Jack Kirby did when he jumped from Marvel to DC was to create a character based just enough on Stan as to avoid a lawsuit.

I feel like the comments here make more sense than the article. Am I losing IQ points to exhaustion or was that article lacking in details and organization?

Jack Kirby fantasized about being Woody Allen?

Ummm, yeah, so as someone who works for a bleeding edge defense technology company, it isn't about being anti-Asian. China is the single largest source of government hacking warriors in the world. They have a government budget whose sole purpose is to sponsor organizations to take over and infiltrate every high tech market in the world and to exploit and purchase/consume every easily exploited media IP they can.

China is NOT the Asian world. Go ask someone from Japan if they feel they are being denigrated when China is blamed for doing EXACTLY what China does.  Go ahead, I'll wait.  Do not equate speaking truth about how China operates to being politically incorrect toward the Asian community. Those are not the same. You MUST be able to place the efforts of a subversive government front and center. Where the fraud is committed IS material when that country is the largest source of political, technological and social fraud in the world.

There are times to be a SJW and this farking isn't one of them.
