The comic book legend is going after POW! The suit hopes to roll back the agreement and collect damages up to one billion dollars.

According to the suit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Lee has alleged that Duffy and Champion did not disclosed the full terms of the company's sale to Hong Kong-based Camsing International in 2017.

"Pursuant to their conspiracy and agreement, Defendants, and each of them, knowingly made material misrepresentations of fact, and forged or fraudulently obtained a signature from Lee to give POW!" He usually only authorizes it on a non-exclusive basis.

"While the Illegitimate Document purports to contain Lee's signature, Lee never knowingly signed it". The complaint also states that Camsing was given access to his Twitter, Facebook, Instagram accounts against Lee's wishes.
