Michael Breakfield of Lone Star Comics on 'Space Marine'
Published: 02/08/2013 05:50am
Michael Breakfield of Lone Star Comics in Arlington, Texas comments on the story reporting that Games Workshop pressured an author to stop using the term "space marine" (see "Games Workshop Pressures Author").
So, Games Workshop owns the generic term "space marine" and Marvel and DC jointly own the term "superhero"? Wha?! Well, I own the term "green apple." So there. Nobody say or write the words "green apple" or I'll sue. Lame.
