Kitty Pryde Owns the Trademark on the X-Men

The current trademark for X-Men is owned by Marvel Characters, as you might expect. But in the Marvel Universe itself, Marvel seems to have lost the rights. In today's Astonishing X-Men #13 by Matthew Rosenberg and Greg Land, Havok looks to create his own X-Men team, recruiting from within the X-Mansion, only to hit a snag.

Kitty Pryde Owns the Trademark on the X-Men

The X-Men own their own trademark, at least as far as it goes to creating superhero teams known as the X-Men. Which does suggest they could have sued the likes of X-Force, X-Factor, or other knock-off teams if they had wanted. Also…Kitty Pryde Owns the Trademark on the X-Men

The Reavers are back, and they have a new weapon that only Havok knows about. It's going to take a ragtag group of X-Men to save a world that hates and fears them! But after his villainous turn, can any of the X-Men really trust him? Can he blame them? Havok! Beast! Dazzler! Warpath! Colossus! It's an all-new, all-different kind of X-Men story from the minds of Matthew Rosenberg (PUNISHER) and Greg Land (INCREDIBLE HULK)!
