Given the huge success that Marvel has these days. It is normal for situations like these to end up happening. With some companies claiming that Marvel has an apparent lack of imagination. Stating that it stole the design of some of your characters. As is the case, for example, of Horizon Comics and its founders Ben and Raymond Lai. Which question the originality of Marvel in relation to characters such as Iron Man (Iron Man) and Ant Man (Ant Man).
Interestingly, Marvel has been involved in something very similar in the past, taking the fight to court and eventually winning. However, it seems that this time the battle seems to be bigger. Bearing in mind that Horizon Comics has some good arguments in its favor.
Are these film series at risk?
Therefore, at the outset none of these film series will be in danger or will be forced out of the market. After all, this is going to be a complicated process, but it probably won’t shake the giant Disney, which now owns Marvel.
As for complaints, Horizon Comics complains only about the similarities that Iron Man has with one of his characters, including a poster pose. And yet a character in “O Homem Ant” who is apparently just like a military man already created by this studio.
Thus, Horizon Comics intends that Marvel will pay a large indemnity, all the costs of this process and that it will be condemned for what it has done. Claiming that this is supposed revenge, given that Marvel invited the Lai brothers to a project. Since they ended up not accepting it.
In short, we will really have to wait and see how this process unfolds. And if Marvel will be able to emerge once again victorious from a plagiarism process.
