Marvel Comics Sues Game Companies Over Superhereo Video Game

Another outrageous copyright suit has been filed, this time by Marvel Comics against the creators of a massively multiplayer role-playing game called City of Heroes. The claim is that the game allows players to make characters that look like or are named after Marvel characters like the Hulk, Wolverine, etc.

That's like saying pencils allow you to draw something that looks like someone else's copyrighted material and that therefore the pencil company should be liable. Ridiculous.
