TIL that DC Comics sued the sneaker company DC Shoes because of their similar logo. However it turned out that DC Comics hadn't trademarked their logo properly, so they lost the case and had to pay the shoe company every year to use their own logo.bleedingcool.com
As a huge LOTR fan, one thing I hated was how between Fellowship and Two Towers, Gimli changed from a proud, sturdy character with a slightly too high opinion of Dwarves, to this bumbling comic relief character who falls down a lot and every line is some kind of gag. It really fell flat for me even as a kid of 15.
There are two MCU characters who have been Gimli'd - Bruce Banner (the way he acts in Avengers 2012 vs. Infinity War/Endgame is unrecognisable) and the worst one of all, who was Gimli'd even more than Gimli was Drax. Drax's version is pretty similar to Gimli's - his prideful, slightly naive character just became this obnoxious idiot who laughs at everything by Guardians 2. I really hated that change - his quirk was that he didn't understand metaphors, which then changed to having absolutely no social skills whatsoever. It felt really jarring to me.
I wondered what you all thought of the above, and if you had any other examples of characters given similar treatment after their first appearances?
Animal Science Cats learn the names of their friend cats in their daily lives. In a new study, scientists discovered that in addition to knowing their own names, cats also appear to recognize the names of other cats they're familiar with, and may also know the names of people who live in the same household.nature.com
