Marvel/Fox Sue Over Zoom Academy

It isn't really comics news, but this latest lawsuit is probably worth mentioning for a couple of reasons. First, one of the three major differences between this iteration of Marvel and past ones is "aggressive about suing to protect perceived interests." (The other two are "movie-fixated" and "smarter licensing deals.") Second, you can link this to their suit against the City of Heroes on-line role-playing game in that Marvel seems to be defining their characters and character interests in terms of an accumulation of story factors as opposed to a name and costume.
