DC Comics sues Hillary Clinton for copyright infringement, claiming she stole Wonder Woman’s character
BURBANK, CA -- On Tuesday, DC Comics filed a lawsuit against President Hillary Rodham Clinton accusing the president of infringing on their active copyright of Wonder Woman, citing her “entire persona” as evidence.
“Wonder Woman is pathbreaking feminist heroine who triumphs over her adversaries not with superhuman strength but with love,” writes DC Comics' attorney Doron Braunshtein. “That’s the Wonder Woman brand. So when America’s first woman president disheartens the KKK into postpone the race war and inspires North Korea to destroy its ballistic missile stockpile without even threatening military intervention, it’s all too obvious who she’s plagiarizing: Wonder Woman.”
DC Comics' complaint also cites vast amounts of circumstantial evidence to support the idea that Clinton may also have stolen some of Wonder Woman’s particular superpowers, such as her prowess as a melee fighter and even her ability to block bullets with her bracelets.
“DNA evidence is yet to confirm this suspicion,” Braunshtein said. “But the NRA has been eerily silent since Clinton’s election. Do they have something to fear?”
The White House did not respond to requests for comment.
The multi-million dollar lawsuit marks the first time in over two decades that a company or person has sued the sitting President of the United States for an offense unrelated to a decision made in office.
The last such incident occurred in 1994, when former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones sued then-President Bill Clinton for alleged sexual harassment. The Supreme court voted unanimously in favor of Clinton, a verdict U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions dismissed as “fake news” last week before encouraging Jones to re-file the suit now.
“If she can’t afford a lawyer, I know some people in Russia who would be delighted to cover her legal expenses,” he said.
