OH... MY... GOD!
For you newbies, this is the kinda stuff he'd pull...
PLAGIARISM, PLAGIARISM and more PLAGIARISM!!!
The character Nova of the publishing house Marvel Comics appeared for the first time in 1976 in comic written by the mythical Marv Wolfman and drawn by the not less mythical John Bucema and counts the history on about the alien Rhomann Dey, member elite of Nova Corps of the Xandar planet follow to the pirate evildoer intergalactic Zorr until the planet earth and Rhomann Dey in its deathbed transfer its powers to the young Richard Rider de Queens NY so that he is the new defender who represents Nova Corps in this sector of the galaxy. This history sounds familiar to you? Sure, Nova is the Marvel version of the Green Lantern Corps of the DC Comics, a play of the publishing house Marvel to give fight to the distinguished competition.
For 31 years the original design of Nova (that was developed by the design team of Marvel) has above his head a helmet in form of bullet with a star of 4 peaks to the front and 2 small peaks on top of the eyes. The peaks of the helmet of Nova always had been flat (2D) as can be seen in the images of these links: ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.) In recent times Marvel Comics has made a redesign of its classic characters as the new suit of Spider-Man (is ugly); the new armor of Iron-Man (that is cool); The Captain America (that see oneself well without the wings); and the design team of Marvel Comics also work with the redesign of Nova and in the Annihilation mini-series of the 2006. (1, 2, 3, 4.) and with the relaunch of the maxi-series Nova Vol.4 in the 2007 and a covers incredible of Adi Granov (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and more clear 11.) the peaks in the mask of Nova to let itself of to draw in flat form (2D) and they began to draw the peaks in form of pyramid of three faces (3D).
I want to indicate of clear way the fact of that the mask of my character TONAMELT The Dark Protector (1, 2.) was the first mask of a superhero, in all the history of the design of superheros to comics, "with a peak in form of pyramid of three faces in the front of his mask." (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.) and is one mask with a design very singular and from the 2001 with registry in the office of author rights and the designers of Marvel Comics know very well the mask of Tonamelt for the case of plagiarism that to happen with the character Ethan in the 2005 (one hero wannabe) that I has reported to the public opinion. (1, 2, 3, 4.) But sure, is not the same the evolution of a design that the cloning of a design. In the case of Ethan to bother me much that a sketcher x of Marvel copies exactly all the mask of Tonamelt that cost me years of designing and that I have published in several websites and forums of the Internet for the promotion of the character. In the case of Nova is only a part of the design of my mask (its characteristic more distinguished) and they use this characteristic to make evolve the design of the triangular peaks of the helmet of Nova so that are peaks in form of pyramid of three faces and it is a evolution of a design that receives the influence of another previous design. I also take from influence the design of the jersey of Captain America ( 1, 2, 3.) for the design of my character Tonamelt, that case also is a evolution of design, not a clonación of the design. Ethical and respect to the design of other designers, only that.
Yeah, the dude's trying to trademark a pointy mask.
PAD and Jamal Y. Igle eventually chimed in... Ah, good times.
Old skool Rama fun begins HERE
(or it DID, at least).
Apparently the dude's got a Twitter and a Deviantart account.
