The Fair Trading commission today ruled against comic publishing giants such as DC and Marvel and what it considers misleading product titles.
"For example" said Justice Schwartz, "we have The Amazing Spiderman. Well he's been around for 50 years, everyone's familiar with him. I don't think anyone's all that amazed by it anymore." The comic is to be retitled The Mildly Diverting Spiderman.
Other Marvel lineup changes include:
The Repetitive Hulk
The Incomprehensible X-Men
Not More Bloody Wolverine
The Tiresome Thor
The Interminable Iron Man
Daredevil, The Man Without Plausibility
Changes will be made over at DC too. "Superman implies that he's some sort of superior human when actually he's a regular Kryptonian." Normal Alien #1 will be published next month.
