What’s DC Up To With The Infinite Crisis Trademark?

infiniteInfinite Crisis was a comic book mini-series launched by DC in 2005, and published digitally about a year ago.

But right now DC are applying for a new trademark for Infinite Crisis, in two categories.

Printed matter and paper goods, namely, books featuring characters from animated, action adventure, comedy and/or drama features, comic books, graphic novels, magazines featuring characters from animated, action adventure, comedy and/or drama features

Downloadable publications in the nature of books featuring characters from animated, action adventure, comedy and/or drama features, comic books, graphic novels, magazines featuring characters from animated, action adventure, comedy and/or drama features

A comics fan who works in this legal field told me;

Seems odd to spend money now unless something new was planned for this trademark…

I asked if it could be that DC are getting their ducks in a row ahead of Marvel’s decision to publish a new comic Infinity for Free Comic Book Day, and was told;

it seems odd they’d spend the money to protect a former (not generally loved) series same without some plans in the future to do something with it. Perhaps the next video game to follow the Injustice: Gods Among Us game (and accompanying comic book)?

It’s a thought…
