Ok trademark and copyright don’t seem that different to me so I just confused them as one an the same. I don’t think they have it on Thor’s name alone but under the Mighty Thor which is blonde and blue eyed.

Ok they cannot trademark or copyright his appearance. Only trademark any unique STORIES publish under the marvel name associated with Thor. If someone wrote a story about Thor fighting in a group with robot man, a super human solider, others of the like, called the Avenging, then that would be concerning because of much alike they are to Marvel. Just mentioning Thor in a story or starring doesn’t call for lawful action. Even more so on the grounds of his appearance; gods are supposed to reflect their followers and you sure as hell not going expect a Black Thor because Norse people are VERY pale in every sense of the word.

They haven’t copyrighted the god, they copyrighted the comic book character. If you want to right story or comic about Thor as long as it’s drawn from the mythology and not Marvel’s take on it your fine.
The look of Marvel’s Thor, is copyrighted.
While items by themselves such as armor cannot be copyrighted, armor combined with other elements can be copyrighted.

Before Marvel’s Thor character, there was never a Thor interpretation that had him wearing this exact combination of gold, red and blue, armor, knee plates, a row of chest discs, hammer and winged helmet.
Marvel was the first to incorporate all of these elements into one entity…That means they own the design.

From what you were saying it’s like that had hold on his physical biological appearance in a sense that no else could describe his as “pale, blond hair, blue eyes”. But yeah that totally have the right for costume and drawing design.

I mean if Marvel was extremely petty they’d probably find a way to do that to lol.

Going far off topic so let’s bring it back.

Hahaha that was fun.

An Adventure or Fantasy movie sound like a good pair of genres for movie night.

Especially if the fantasy one is one that deals with mythology; I can already imagine a number of characters that would react to it (because of how wrong everything is :laughing:)

Loved the demo!! I really enjoyed the dynamic with Caleb and being able to choose how you interact with him. The relationship between MC and Caleb feels so real and relatable (prob bc I actually have a younger brother named Caleb lol) and I felt connected by playing as a protective older sibling since I am one in real life. The story was engaging and the writing was clear so I definitely appreciated that aspect as well! Also looks like there will be gods/goddesses from multiple cultures so that’s quite interesting! I’m excited to meet all the RO’s bc I am a complete sucker for romance :smirk: Keep up the great work! :smile:

Progress Update (07/16)

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week!

I’ve gotten what I’d call an average amount of writing done this week; about two thousand words in total when counting rewrites and new content. I’m not feeling the best so I haven’t gotten as much done as I’d like but I’m still pushing through!

For the movie night scene, these are the current genres that I’ve added from people’s requests:

Action/Adventure

Documentary

Sci-Fi

Fantasy

Romance

Drama

Thriller

Horror

Now for a quick reply before I head to bed for the night!

It would have been quite different from the story now; for one instance the MC would have been raised in the midst of the pantheon of their Godly parent and Caleb wouldn’t have been included the way he is now.

Caleb is a precious cinnamon roll and I will defend him with my life
