Yet another "innovation" from our friends in the Church of IPR:
Cory Doctorow has a story on BoingBoing about how Marvel and DC comics seek a joint monopoly on the term "super-hero" so they can be the real world Dr. Doom independent comic publishers. The California science centre show apparently helps them on their road to steal yet another word from the world.
One really does wonder when this kind of monopolisation is going to leave all of us speechless.
The counter-proposal is to never use the term "super-hero" when referring to any Marvel or DC comic character. Alternative proposals contain "underwear pervert", "vigilantes" or "mutants."
So who is your favorite underwear pervert?
