Really?

  1. I started banging my head against the desk, but that started to hurt. Oh good grief!

  2. We've not heard this before have we.

  3. I don't think this guy fully knows what "think" means...

  4. Wonder if he knows Stan Lee was told to make X-Men to imitate Justice League?

    1. I thought it was the FF that was the imitation of the JLA.

    2. They both were. I think there were other comics as well.

    3. No FF was response to JLA, X-men is primarily Kirbys creation, and was meant to bring light to a major problem in America in the 60's, equality.

    4. I believe there was some controversy though as to whether the X-Men were copies of DC's Doom Patrol too, though:

    5. It's just like the "issue" between The Raid and Dredd 3D. People not looking into it further might accuse Dredd from taking their idea from The Raid, despite their production dates.

    6. Yeah. It wasn't quite justice League as much as Doom Patrol, the team of rejects and outcasts. Though JLA was kinda the mold that was the superhero team standard that Julius Schwartz started at DC.

  5. Don't think about that statement too much or it starts to make sense.

    Awesome Comics is a very thorough ripoff of DC with a Captain America thrown in for good measure.

  6. Copies... made by time travelers, evidently.

  7. This is absolutely true. Think about it:

    Wolverine=Batman
    Emma Frost=Wonder Woman
    Cyclops=Superman
    Gambit=Martian Manhunter
    Psylocke=Aquaman

    The resemblances are eerie when you place them side by side.

    1. You forgot
      Beast = Gleek the Space Monkey

    2. Well, that just makes the whole thing silly.

      Don't forget Nightcrawler = Nightwing

      Delete
    4. @Brad the Dad,

      I beg to differ, sir. Nightcrawler crawls at night. What else crawls at night? Bats on cave walls. Ergo, Nightcrawler = Batman!

      But then who would Wolverine be?

      Delete
    6. Elongated Man. It's a perfect match.

      Delete
    7. Wolverine has claws, who else has claws? Hawkman of course!

  8. I don't think this guy has ever thought about it. By it, I mean nearly everything

  9. So I'm thinking there won't be many calls for the "It's True" tag for this one.

  10. Superman, like, rips off all the X-Men's superpowers at once, basically.

  11. Maybe Stan Lee shouldn't have left his sketch book behind when he used his time machine to visit the past.

  12. I'm a die hard Marvel Zombie and even I find this to be stupid.

  13. This reminds me of listening to my little brother insisting that his favorite song at the time, Aerosmith's version of _Come Together_, was "totally ripped off by the Beatles".

    1. Your brother is right though. The Beatles do this crap all the time. Remember when Fiona Apple had to sue them for ripping off 'Across the Universe'?

      Delete
    2. Once I was at a bar and a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers" was playing. Someone said it was a ripoff of a song by Radiohead and she actually got somebody to agree with her.

      Delete
    3. I was in a store with a girl when Soft Cell's version of Tainted Love comes on. Her reaction? "OH MY GOD WHAT ARE THEY DOING THEY TOTALLY RUINED THIS SONG."

      She was a Marilyn Manson fan, you see.

    4. Scotty-B: that's tragic.

      Did they eventually cure her?

  14. What?
    What?
    WHAT?
    Wait...
    WHAT?!?!?!

  15. Brilliantly ironic as X-Men was pretty much a knockoff of DC's Doom Patrol
