Todd McFarlane Settles With Al Simmons, DC Try To Get Their Costs From Toberoff

We reported on what appeared to be a rather ridiculous legal suit earlier this year, when Todd McFarlane sued Al Simmons for representing himself as the inspiration for Todd’s creation Spawn. Despite Todd McFarlane’s publications often describing Al Simmons as… well… the inspiration for Todd’s creation, Spawn.

Well, it’s been settled. The Hollywood Reporter reports;

Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has come to an agreement that ends a lawsuit he brought against ex-employee Al Simmons, who wrote a book that suggested that he was the inspiration behind the the popular Spawn character. In the lawsuit, McFarlane charged Simmons with violating the terms of his employment pact and breaching his duty of loyalty. Terms of any settlement aren’t known.

Looks like Al won’t be calling himself Spawn any more…

They also mention that Siegel and Shuster lawyer Marc Toberoff is appealing the Superman decision case, and that Warners/DC Entertainment are appealing to get their costs in the trial back.
