Fans were already pretty disturbed when news broke about Stan Lee's blood being stolen. The fact that someone went out of their way to steal the blood of the 93-year-old comic book legend is disgraceful and disgusting. As if that wasn't freaky enough, we now know why this act was done; to sign Black Panther comic books.
TMZ uncovered the news, revealing that the "signed" Black Panther comics can be bought at the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. store in the Las Vegas Strip. Each edition comes with a certificate of authentication that details the item as a "Hand-Stamped Signature of STAN LEE using Stan Lee's Solvent DNA Ink."
Apparently, the comic books signed in blue are worth $250, while the ones in gold are $500. It's really disgusting and Stan's legal team are seeing what they can do about the whole debacle.
It hasn't been easy for Stan recently, with him catching Pneumonia and getting robbed. He has also distanced himself from various associates, which has made many within the comic book community feel uneasy. The fact that he has also continued going to cons has also been worrisome.
Here's hoping things get better for Stan.
