Super Heroes Sue Super Villains for Infringement
by Brent "The Duke"
EMPIRE CITY --
Escalating an already bad situation between the two high-powered
groups, the League of Super Champions took its fight against
the Legion of Supreme Crooks to the courts today, claiming that
their arch-enemies were causing confusion among loyal readers
of the Super Champions' comics.
The action is but the latest in a week which has
seen Fox News file suit against comedian Al Franken for his use
of the network's alleged trademark "fair and balanced"
on the cover of his latest latest book.
"Just because Fox owns our comic-book
publisher, that's not -- and I repeat, that's not -- the
reason we're filing suit," declared The Tenniseer, current
leader of the Super Champions.
"But Fox did show us that you can

The Tenniseer continued. "And you know what? Anyway we can

win, it'll be a --"
"A victory for FREEEEEEDOM®!"
interjected Ace, The Tenniseer's boon teenaged companion. The
phrase "A victory for FREEEEEEDOM®!" is a registered

The particulars of the lawsuits remain
sealed, but are thought to center around the acronym "LoSC,"
used by both super-hero groups when referring to themselves in
Needless to say, the Super Crooks aren't
going down without a fight.
"I'll tell you what this is, this
is a fight for the freedom of expression," announced The
Racketeer, nemesis of The Tenniseer and leader of the Super Crooks.
"There's no way they can suppress
the use of our name, especially since the League of Super Chumps
only formed after the Legion of Super Crooks started its
quest for world domination," The Racketeer added.
"And if it just so happens that the
judge doesn't see it our way, well --"
"Fuck 'EMMMMM®!" interrupted
