Los Angeles- Marvel Enterprises shocked the world today when, hot on the heels of its lawsuit against Korean based publisher NCSoft and San Jose based Cryptic Studios, they announced they were suing several children over their Halloween costumes. The Lawsuit claims these childrens homemade costumes violated Marvels Trademarked characters, as well as extra money that they could be using in a money fight with Alex Ross and Bill Gates.
In the Lawsuit filed Friday afternoon, Marvel Comics claimed these shoddy costumes, hand made by the childrens parents, allowed them to appear like their favorite Marvel characters. Marvel proceeded to claim that the parents are also responsible for being poor, and not buying a costume like any good american consumer, and that it disrupts their future buisness of charging outrageous licensing fee's so they can continue to gouge their fans out of every single cent.
E-Mails sent to several of the children involved recieved comments such as "Stan Lee is a big doodie head!", and one from a six year old that can't be repeated here due to various obscenitities and a rather graphic and anatomically impossible list of things that Michael Bendis could do to himself.
Allen Lipson (The current president of Marvel), when asked how Marvel could do such a thing to loyal fans, stated "Because we're money grubbing whores, baby!". At which point he proceeded to hot oil wrestle two women dressed as Jean Grey and She-Hulk.
