It took them 10 years to determine that the plaintiffs have no standing since they bought shares after the sale of the characters?

Sounds like. The fact that this crap took ten years to work through the courts before a judge said "fark off, your morons", says something about the American legal system. It's would be like me buying shares in the old GM now, and then trying to sue over the bankruptcy process.

My friends who work in comic book stores are always happily entertained by people who come in with 75 cover variants acting like they're going to put their kid through college on 90's comics.

Don't forget the Chromium© cover prequel issue featuring Stan "creating" those characters all by himself.

Stan Lee is a delightful old man that should have full editorial control over these bastards lives. Everyone involved in trying to legally screw him should have to face Galactus, devourer of worlds and purveyor of giant hats.
