Friday Flash Fiction: The Ironic Man

The Ironic Man will be appearing in the POW!erful Tales anthology due out from Peryton Publishing in February 2009.

This is a sequel to my 2005 story Too Late the Hero, published on Aphelion.

This reminded me of when, a few years back, Marvel sued ncSoft, publisher of MMORPG 'City of Heroes' for "copyright infringement" because some players were using the character editor to create clones of Marvel characters. This was lampooned in a video in which a superhero ran through a multitude of costume variations, all of which were taken after 70 years of superhero comics, before finally he went out to fight crime in a garish neon mix involving hotpants and a comedy afro... :)

I good chuckle on this one. A great idea - I reckon that idea's got legs; it could run and run if you wanted it to.

Neat idea, nicely executed!

Perhaps parents will have to apply to a database one day before they can name their children because some corporation has legally taken it's ownership :-(

"I name this child M$."
