Dammit, that was MY PLAN!
Well, he's clearly not going into copyright law...
But if they're selling more, why would you... but... ouch.
"They sent me a Cease and Desist letter because they're just jealous...!"
Man... why didn't I think of that!?
LOL! Makes absolute sense.
Intellectual Property law is certainly not in his interest bracket...
I want to read his comics. Their plots and the baddies' evil schemes in them must be fantastic.
Mr Sinister starts his own Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. That way, once his enrollment gets higher than theirs, the X-Men will have to do his bidding.
wumpus, that's a story-line (minus the second part) I for one could actually get behind. Especially with Cyclops and Wolverine already divided and pursuing their own ideologies; why not throw a mysterious/creepy third option into the mix.
This has been the basis for many a plan to break into comics over the years."Yeah, they're the X-Men, except I call them the Z-Guys, but only until my genius is recognized and my sales are through the roof!"
I believe that's called the Liefeld maneuver.
Hhhhh. When I was at Joe K's school, I met somebody who announced he was gonna be a gazillionaire on the basis of his hot fresh superhero teams, and opened his notebook to show everyone his DC/Marvel ripoffs with minor detail changes. His proudest achievement: The Zodiac! Yes, "Aquarius" was basically Aquaman with a different belt buckle. "Gemini" was Aurora and Northstar with the appropriate chest-emblem. "Scorpio" was a tiny, out-and-out trace of that single-panel alternate-reality Batman from some '70s filler, The Scorpion, and "Virgo" was of course Wonder Woman with a "V" motif instead of "WW." Oh it was so sad.
Gotta love people like this and their arrogance! Good luck with that buddy!
This cartoon made me genuinely LOL. So little brain-engagement.
Why is the X men the most ripped off of all comic characters? If you're gonna rip something off, shouldn't you rip off something that hasn't been already ripped off numerous times? This is simple economics.
