I'm seeing some distressing articles floating around
online about how an ailing Stan Lee is being taken
advantage of and his finances being mismanaged. He is
basically being robbed of millions, according to said
articles. That said, the articles seem to be from
sources like the Toronto Sun (tabloid) and TMZ (well,
TMZ). Is there anyone (JB or otherwise) that might be in
a position to know if there's any truth to this?

I believe I've seen some of the same articles, Trevor. Distressing, if true, but as you say, the sources are not the most reliable.

It all seems to be from one source, which was originally reported in The Daily Beast. I can offer no insight into Stan's finances, but I am quietly confident this statement from the article is not true:

"Stan and JC are literally being picked apart by vultures"

Unfortunately, elder abuse is a very real thing and there are plenty of people looking for opportunities to prey on the vulnerable.

Hopefully, Stan is protected from this and can enjoy his life without any problems. He certainly deserves it!

Now having seen that one of these articles has the VERY
clickbait-y title "Stan Lee's Final Days" or somesuch,
I'm very much hoping this is all completely untrue, or,
at worst, based upon a single, exaggerated, instance.

Very sad.

On the Bleeding Cool site there is an article with photos showing the obvious toll that all this is taking on Stan.

I never realized what a despicable person Stan's daughter apparently is. The  part of the article describing her physically abusing both of her elderly parents is disgusting and vile.

I have refused to read any articles as some do seem click-baity. 

I suspect his situation may be similar to others of his age. There'll always be people out to exploit the elderly.

The video is sad to me and a bit disturbing. He deserves better.

-C!
