Lawyer Man smash puny humans!

Marvel has just Disney-fied itself by suing the makers of City of Heroes because it allows players to create characters that look like trademarked Marvel heroes. Not only are they trying to cripple City of Heroes so that you’ll be forced to play in the new Marvel MMORPG (where I’m sure you won’t be able to be any trademarked characters), but they’re also setting themselves up for anyone who creates a unique character in CoH to sue any future Marvel creation that happens to look like something some kid in Boise made up one night!

Their next move will be to sue themselves for allowing people to see copyrighted characters. A spokesperson said, “If we allow this, then the public might start to imagine what the Incredible Hulk looks like without pants.” He was immediately sued by Marvel for using the term “Incredible Hulk” without permission and arrested by the FCC for having a dirty mind.

    What idiots. I played that game for about a month, and I had a chick I named Harley Quinn, and she was in…. black and red! Glad I don’t play anymore, what a load of crap.

    Oh, I don’t know. CBS has fired the producer who had the temerity to cut into CSI Wednesday night to run a bulletin that Arafat had died. I’d say that’s worse.

    Ed Murrow must be rotating at 8,000 rpm.

    They really fired that producer, Steve? Yeesh.

    Marvel are idiots.

    The line about the Hulk and the FCC is hilarious.

    About the CBS producer thing… they were fired for not following previously set up protocols for how they were going to handle Arafat’s death. It wasn’t because they cut into a high-ratings program.
