Rob Liefeld to Sue Marvel?10233

@etapi65 I think others (although maybe that was also you, I don't remember), in other threads, have given credit for Deadpool to Kelly and McGuinness because they created the version of Deadpool that really took off.

The credit part I suppose is debatable, but ownership obviously means a lot to creators. That was the reason behind Image existing, right? I don't fault anyone for being salty over things like that even if we're talking about a derivative character. Lots of characters are derivative.

@xbonk

I think you and I are on the same page. I may not have explained well, and admittedly, was thinking about how they credit people in the movies.

You know how it’ll say Deadpool created by Liefeld, but later on acknowledge other people who contributed to the storyline they use or supporting cast. That’s what I was thinking of in shared credit.

Anyway, good derailment in my view!

Those are without a doubt the best things I think I have ever seen from him.

And in breaking news, Rob Liefield has sued himself . Apparently he is offended by the amount of credit for his creations his inner self takes, without credit to his creative being. As long as the conflict rages, Liefeld has stated flatly he wont be signing anything except other artists work he has copied from. The suit is seeking millions in lost and punitive damages, for how much trauma and glory and fame his inner self has cost his artistic self. Expect news any moment he will also be revealing a new character, Minor X, who will first appear only on random rolls of toilet paper Liefield himself chooses to use.

What creations? Rob Liefled takes existing characters change their costume's color scheme and their names (sometimes ever not even that) and wa LA a "new character"

Are you sure that Rob Liefled didn't just trace over a Michael Turner piece and pass it off as his??

@Jessie_O Rob did 2-3 Issues of Teen Titans back in 2004-ish. It definitely had Starfire. Just FYI, in case you're interested.

I'll try to find them, and I'll share some pictures.

Has Liefeld ever apologized for this?


My guess is that the artwork above was a very bad swipe of this cover:

That can't be Liefeld's work. None of the characters have headgear that was stolen from a boxing gym, or bandoliers strapped to their legs, or crazy harnesses...

So Liefeld invented the first transgender comic character too? Amazing!
He even left the manly shoulders, Adam's apple, and a shaved, lonely man-ball.

Yup, whatever's between the legs there reminds me of the creeps who like to go to the park and stretch in little nylon 80's gym shorts.

To me RL is just a symbol of the era when I stopped buying new comics and everyone younger than me started buying them.

@Towmater to the rescue. Thanks!

But, damn if that art doesn’t make me cringe. I must have been looking through the past with some serious rose-tinted glasses!
