    In June, attorneys for the 95-year-old Lee and his daughter were granted a restraining order against Morgan that separated him from Lee and revealed that police were investigating him for elder abuse.

    Lee, co-creator of such characters as Spider-Man, Iron Man, and The Incredible Hulk, died in November. ASSOCIATED PRESS
