Horizon Comics Productions, Inc. v. Marvel Entertainment, LLC et al

By Mike Steger

In this case, brought by Horizon Comics, Horizon claims that the armored suits used in Marvel's "Iron Man" and "Avengers" movies infringe on Horizon's copyrights in armor displayed in its "Radix" comic book series. On Marvel's motion to dismiss the complaint, the court ruled that (1) issues of fact exist as to similarities between the armor used in a promotional poster for "Iron Man 3" and promotional art for the "Radix" series, and (2) the mechanized body armor in the films was not substantially similar to that in the "Radix" series.
