It appears that DC is inching closer (if they haven’t closed the case already) towards completely subsuming the Superman rights into their bulging corpus. Latest in a long line of appeals and whatever stuff has ruled in favor of The Man.
Don’t let the headline fool you, the battle for Superman’s soul isn’t over. Okay, soul is a bit erroneous. And over-dramatic. The fight for Superman’s wondrous money-making capabilities isn’t over. That doesn’t mean there haven’t been ebbs and flows to the case. The latest has the tide turning in DC’s favor. What does this all mean?! I have no fucking idea.
Hey! Wee! Score one for the billion-dollar corporation! Those plucky bastards.
I don’t really understand the legal mumbo jumbo that is going on in the Shuster estate’s attempt to reclaim the rights to the Super-Man. They’re in a really righteous arm wrestling match with DC, I know that. There’s probably like a zillion bucks on the line, I know that too. But who is in the right? What the motions mean? Not even.
The check that bought the rights to Superman has sold, and for quite the pretty penny. Imagine having so much money that you spend over $100k on a check? Yeah, I can’t neither.
You can buy the check that bought the rights to Superman. Now in my world in the Multiverse where I rule supreme atop a throne of golden Diet Dew cans, with Jennifer Lawrence a-clutching my perfectly chiseled biceps and cooing at me, this would give you the rights to the actual comic character.
