The Law of Superheroes

Mein Lieblings-Lawblog Law and the Multiverse (Superheroes, supervillains, and the law) gibt’s jetzt auch als Buch. Ich hab’ mir das Teil umgehend bestellt und auf meinen Kindle schicken lassen, gibt nur wenig besseres, als die Kombination von Bürokratie und Gesetzgebung und Laserblick und mutierte Superhelden.

The Law of Superheroes asks and answers crucial speculative questions about everything from constitutional law and criminal procedure to taxation, intellectual property, and torts, including:

– Could Superman sue if someone exposed his true identity as Clark Kent?
– Are members of the Legion of Doom vulnerable to prosecution under RICO?
– Do the heirs of a superhero who comes back from the dead get to keep their inherited property after their loved one is resurrected?
– Does it constitute “cruel and unusual punishment” to sentence an immortal like Apocalypse to life in prison without the possibility of parole?

Engaging, accessible, and teaching readers about the law through fun hypotheticals, The Law of Superheroes is a must-have for legal experts, comic nerds, and anyone who will ever be called upon to practice law in the comic multiverse.
