I've always been a DC person myself anyway, but that article about Marvel not allowing their property to be made into skins or whatever for computer games, don't worry me at all. I'll keep using their characters as much as I want, and if they object they can test me out ;)

I liked Hanna-Barbara (Space Ghost, Birdman, etc...) better than Marvel anyway.

Well, one could argue that technically this is U.S. copyright law. Batmite is over in Europe. What does he have to worry? :p
