Monster Energy, the company that loves lawsuits slightly more than sponsoring EXTREME sports, has asked and been granted an extension to oppose Marvel Comics' trademark registration for the comic book Monsters Unleashed. The drinkmaker is claiming that Marvel's toxic relationship with fans caused brand confusion with their toxic energy beverage.
Monsters Unleashed was a comics anthology title first released in 1973, that ran for eleven issues. The first issue contained seven stories from creators including Stan Lee, Gerry Conway, Marv Wolfman, and Roy Thomas.
Marvel EXXXCLUSIVLY gave The Outhouse a statement saying, "Due to Marvel's 1973 copyright for Monsters Unleashed, the company is citing precedent from court case Monster v. Go Fuck Yourself We Have Disney Money Now."
The loser of the lawsuit will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, with the harshest punishment enforced being having to read Marvel comics while drinking Monster energy drinks.
