It was a given that Stan Lee’s creations will live on long after his death, but some of his unseen original ideas will be introduce for years into the future.
Camsing International, who own Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment released a statement of condolence for their company’s namesake’s death and a pledge to keep developing his works for the company
We at Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment are saddened by the loss of our friend and mentor Stan Lee, the father of pop culture. His passing today marks a devastating and painful moment in time, but the legacy of Stan Lee, which includes Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Hulk, X-Men, The Avengers and thousands of other characters both for Marvel and his company Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment, will continue to entertain the world and true believers for generations to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and the fans of not only his work, but of him, as a friend who made the world a better place. He was a true icon and pioneer with no comparable second.
Through careful planning with Stan, we are confident his vision will continue to be recognized through our current and future Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment projects…The Group will firmly push forward the development of Stan Lee IP and strive to integrate Stan Lee elements with oriental tradition to realize Mr. Stan Lee’s great vision.
POW! Entertainment was created by Lee will Gill Champion and Arthur Lieberman in 2001. It most notable output have been Stripperella, an animated cartoon where a stripper (voiced by Pamela Anderson) fights crime, the reality-contest show Who Wants to Be a Superhero?, and, most recently, the hit SKY1 TV series, Lucky Man.
Camsing bought POW! in late 2017 and shifted the focus towards reworking Lee’s ideas to the Asian market. Last month, POW! held the first “Stan Lee Comic Universe” convention at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition Center. Camsing has also launched an online serial novel “Stan Lee’s Work Force” and “Between the Lines,” an urban fantasy novel based on a Lee idea that was adapted for the Chinese market. The company is also working on a Korean drama based on Lee’s ideas, as well as an Asian superhero movie.
Thing were not all that rosy for the partnership while Lee was alive. Back in May, Lee sued Camsing International for a $1 billion fraud suit stating the executives there took advantage of Lee’s feeble mind state after the death of his wife; Joan, and made him agree to the sale without him knowing the full extent of what he was giving up. The lawsuit was dropped in July of 2018–shortly after Lee filed a restraining order against his former advisor Keya Morgan.
