COMIC BOOK ARTISTS SUE MARVEL OVER 'IRON MAN' BODY ARMOR04/25/15 @ 12:57 pm EST
One of DC Comics' superheroes will have their identity revealed to the public.Warning: Spoilers
So who’s the DC hero who’s going to lose their secret identity?
That person will be ... Superman
Yes, it's the Man of Steel, the ultimate hero himself. And the person responsible for revealing this news? Why, one of comicdom's premiere newswomen: Lois Lane
, who announces to the world that Superman is Clark Kent!
The reveal is made available via a scan from Bleeding Cool
, and it comes from the Free Comic Book Day title for DC Comics’ Divergence
You’re probably thinking why Lois would do such a thing. Remember, the New 52 is different from the classic version. In the classic version, Lois and Clark get married. In the new universe, Superman is dating Wonder Woman.
The issue also has Commissioner Gordon wearing an armored Batman suit. Apparently because Batman and the Joker “died” during a battle underneath Gotham in “Endgame.”

Ben LaiCAP & THOR TEAM UP FOR A DARING RESCUE IN NEW 04/25/15 @ 12:50 pm EST
and Ray Lai
, two brothers who run Horizon Comics Productions in Massachusetts, have found lawyers to represent them in an uphill battle against Marvel Entertainment over what the character of Iron Man wears.
According to a lawsuit filed on Thursday alleging copyright infringement and unfair business practices, the Lai brothers created in 2001 the comic book series Radix
, featuring characters who "wear highly detailed, mechanized suits of body armor." They now see something too similar in the Iron Man
films and its promotion.Iron Man
, featuring the superhero alter ego of Tony Stark, is based on a comic series created by Stan Lee
in the 1960s.
The law allows new aspects of expression to be copyrighted so long as the authorship is sufficiently delineated and not a generic idea.
In an effort to show that Marvel had access, the Lai brothers say that after Radix
came out, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology used an illustration that was substantially similar to their own work. The image was allegedly used by MIT in the midst of a $50 million nanotechnology research grant from the United States Army to create a new generation of body armor for soldiers.
Supposedly, MIT apologized publicly for using the image in 2002, and a month after this occurred, Marvel hired the Lai brothers as artists to work on various comic book franchises. The complaint asserts that key personnel at Marvel were distributed the Radix
materials from the Lai brothers.
The old comics of Iron Man depict the central character "wearing simple spandex-like attire and minimal armor," states the complaint, while the later films depict him "wearing a fully mechanized suit of body armor."
The complaint, filed by attorneys Jeffrey Wiesner
and Paul Sennott
, has pictures.
Before even getting to the issues of whether Iron Man
body armor is substantially similar to Radix
body armor, whether the idea of a superhero wearing such a suit of armor is more than generic, and whetherIron Man
body armor is merely functional, the lawsuit figures to test plaintiffs on whether they brought a timely-enough complaint.
Marvel, which hasn't yet commented, is said to have shrugged off a cease-and-desist letter.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON - FOCUS ON BLACK WIDOW AND SCARLET WITCH04/24/15 @ 7:37 pm EST
Happy birthday, Mr. J!
To celebrate The Joker turning 75-years-olds today, Suicide Squad
director David Ayer has tweeted the first official look at Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club
) as The Clown Prince of Crime.
Leto is sporting short green hair, dental grills and one purple-colored glove on his right hand. We are getting a vibe from the emaciated truck driver thing that Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo did in the Death of the Family
Leto's pose is also of interest. It's an homage to writer Alan Moore and artist Brian Bolland'sThe Killing Joke
. Keep in mind, this is the second image that David Ayer has released with Leto that references that graphic novel.

This July will mark fifty years working in comics for Roy Thomas,
a writer and editor so legendary, whose resume cannot be done justice by picking just
Thomas succeeded Stan Lee
as the Editor in Chief of Marvel Comics. He co-created dozens of characters ranging from Ultron and Vision to Ghost Rider and Iron Fist. He brought Conan the Barbarian and "Star Wars" to Marvel Comics, and wrote both. In the case of "Conan," he not only wrote one of the longest runs by a writer in modern comics, he left his mark on the character by adding Red Sonja, inspired by Conan creator Robert E. Howard, into the mythos and later writing her adventures. He enjoyed long runs on "The Avengers," "The Invaders," and numerous other Marvel and DC series.
Currently the editor of "Alter Ego," Thomas writes the daily "Amazing Spider-Man" newspaper strip and is the author of the recent book, "75 Years of Marvel Comics," published by Taschen.
The prolific writer spoke with CBR
about his robotic comics creation, about th turn movie phenom. About Ultron:I'm looking forward to seeing it. I was delighted to see that Ultron looks like Ultron. I figured maybe they would change him more. Of course he has changed at various times -- different bodies, the head's changed a little bit -- but the general look of him has always been the same. I guess that must have struck Joss Whedon the same way. I think I would have recognized him right away as something that looked like Ultron even if I didn't know who that was. I'm pleased about that. About the Vision: The Vision hasn't been around in the comics for a few years. I don't really follow the comics, but has the Vision been in comics much recently? He was very prominent for a number of years and became the most popular of the characters in "The Avengers" who didn't have his own series at the time. Then it seemed like he fell out of favor.But the movie audience is not the comic book audience, so it doesn't make any difference. To the movie audience the Hulk is an integral part of "The Avengers." I've never thought of him as such. He was in the first three or four issues, but the reality of the movies is quite a bit different from the reality of the comics. And of course the reality of the comics is whatever you chose to take from fifty or so years of continuity now. About a cameo in the film: No [he does not have one]. I would have liked to. I was in touch with [writer/director] Joss Whedon, but I think Stan has those sewn up. (Laughs) That's okay. [Whedon] did say there's one little touch, that I'm not at liberty to mention, about me in the movie -- if it doesn't end up on the cutting room floor. I haven't asked if it's still in there. I'll have to wait to see. (Source: CBR)
