Acters and powers down to the most deliciously trivial detail The Law of Superheroes asks and answers crucial speculative uestions about everything from constitutional law and criminal procedure to taxation intellectual property and torts includingCould 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. I enjoyed reading this book The authors consider the actions and behavior of both superheroes and supervillains in relation to the laws of 'the real world' and the applicability of the laws of the lands today Overall I thought the authors did a nice job discussing various legal aspects in regards to superheroes and their behavior how superheroes might be breaking laws than they realize in their zeal to uphold those same laws It does get dry in some parts but even then the authors do a nice job of keeping everything understandable instead of falling back on legalese while trying to explain the applicability of the laws to a given situation There were some parts of the book I thought were very interesting some pretty boring but still educational The weakest aspect of the book is how abruptly it ends It felt like the last chapter could have gone on a bit further and it really needed a final chapter to wrap it all up Instead we get a final paragraph in the last chapter to end the book and it definitely feels like something else is missingIt focused mostly on DC and Marvel which kind of makes sense considering how long these two companies have been in existence and pumping out comics with an occasional dalliance with smaller companies Dark Horse is mentioned a couple of times Of course as the focus is super heroes and super villains that could explain why smaller indie companies are not considered or utilized in the various chapter discussionsview spoilerI did find the discussions about Superman's issues with the IRS and owing back taxes to be interesting and amusing He does have uite a bit of wealth that he has never paid taxes on; it would be interesting to see how he would justify not paying the taxesespecially as he claims to be an American citizen It was interesting that technically he could not be taxed for turning coal into diamonds but he could be heavily taxed if he gave the diamonds away as gifts However if he gave a person a lump of coal first and then turned that lump of coal into a diamond both he and the recipient of the lump of coal could avoid having to pay any kind of taxes on the coal I found it fascinating hide spoiler
