Stan Lee’s former manager has been charged with elder abuse against the late writer.

According to the BBC, Kyle Morgan is facing five counts of abuse against Lee – including false imprisonment, fraud and forgery – all stemming from an incident last summer.

A spokesperson for Los Angeles Superior Court confirmed an arrest warrant for Mr Morgan – who is yet to comment – had been issued.

The Marvel superhero visionary died in November 2018 at the age of 95.

He endured faltering eyesight and memory loss towards the end of his life and his final few months were marred by conflicting claims over who was running his affairs.

Lee first helped dream up The Fantastic Four for Marvel Comics in 1961 and went on to co-create titles including Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk.

He has had cameos in scores of Marvel movie adaptations, including all the movies in the successful Marvel Cinematic Universe.
