Law and the tedium of being a superhero
As much as I enjoy watching movies featuring superhero characters, I do find myself sometimes taken out of the movies by details such as:
1. What happens if the court finds the killing of some supervillain by a superhero unlawful? Would that supe (say Batman) have to go to prison?
2. What if Tony Stark was taken down by the IRS and have his technology seized to pay back taxes?
Apparently, I am not the only who feel that way. There is a blog by two lawyers discussing these very issues.
Go on, have a look.
