Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee is being sued by Chicago-based massage therapist Maria Carballo for allegedly sexually harassing and grabbing her during two massage appointments past year.

According to the suit, about 30 minutes into the session, Carballo "noticed that Lee began to fondle himself as she performed the massage".

According to the lawsuit, she is seeking a judgment "in excess of $50,000, plus an award of punitive damages, and attorneys' fees and costs as permitted under the statute".

Lee, however, has reportedly denied the allegations.

KABC has also confirmed that on March 16, a female victim filed a police report alleging that a male client touched her inappropriately while she was performing a duty in related to her occupation. When Lee began groaning again, Carballo says she switched to a Shiatsu massage instead, using her feet.

Carballo said she told her employer she was uncomfortable and didn't want to return for a second session the following day, but was told he was a "VIP" and agreed to go back for fear of losing her job.

Maria Carballo filed a complaint against the Marvel comics creator and his assistant, Mac Anderson.

Lee again reacted the same way when she massaged his thighs, she said. "I don't think he would do that", said his attorney. At this point, Lee allegedly grabbed Carballo's foot and moved it to his genitals, at which point she packed up her things and left.

A representative for Lee did not respond to requests for comment. Carballo says she immediately ended the massage, collected $240 for the appointment and left.

"He is rich and famous". She claimed she was called to perform a massage over the weekend in Mr.

Lee's partner, Keya Morgan, tells TMZ, "I have no idea what the convict Max Anderson did, but Stan Lee is 95 years old, completely harmless, and is 100% innocent, and denies any such false accusations". Before she got on the elevator, Lee's assistant allegedly gave her a big tip in cash. "I am not. After seeing other women fight to be treated with dignity and respect, I decided, 'Me too, '" Carballo stated. I am still nervous and afraid, but not as much as I was before because I have other people helping me, " Carballo was quoted as saying by the news website.
