Marvel Abandons 'Registered Gifted' Trademark, In Favour Of Inhumans…

A couple of years ago, Marvel Comics applied to register the trademark for "Registered Gifted". Ahead of the Agents Of SHIELD TV show, it was used as a handy way to talk about the superpowered without saying "mutant".

And it looked as if this was the term that was going it be used on the TV show, and comics, to avoid any problems with Fox.

But then the Inhumans thing happened. The film was greenlit. The Inhumans were entrenched in the show. And the fish oil tablets went worldwide and now?

Marvel have registered for the Inhumans trademark. It's prominent in the advertising for season three. But "registered gifted"? Abandoned like last week's kippers…

So, of course, if you did want to use the term for anything, it's up for grabs!
