Marvel vs. City of Heroes lawsuit settled

Wolverine City of Heroes (225)

Today, NCSoft announced that they had reached a settlement with Marvel Comics about its online RPG City of Heroes. The complaint spawned from the ability to create characters in City of Heroes that closely resembled characters from the Marvel Universe. While the details of the settlement have yet to be disclosed, NCSoft has stated that "no changes to the City of Heroes of City of Villains character creation engine are part of the settlement."

The lawsuit has always looked to conclude in NCSoft's favor; last March, the judge overseeing the lawsuit dismissed half of Marvel's complaints, citing that many of the complaints were spawned from characters made in the game that Marvel employees, themselves, had created.
