Marvel sues NCsoft over City of Heroes - MMORPG.com

Gamespot is reporting that the legendary comic book company has filed suit against NCsoft for copyright infringement. Here is a portion of the story:

Marvel is claiming that the character customization functionality in City of Heroes allows players to create superheroes that closely resemble trademarked Marvel characters.
