Yes you read right, DC Comics want to sue Valencia Football Club because its crest looks like the Batman symbol. Stupid right?
The comic book company is filing a lawsuit against the La Liga club to challenge its use of a bat image in its crest.
Apparently it is too similar to that of the Batman symbol.
We don’t really see the resemblance, if anything it looks more like the Bacardi logo, so maybe they should be suing the football club instead.
What’s worse is that Valencia F.C. has been around a lot longer than the hero of Gotham. Batman’s came about in 1939, while Valencia have been using a bat on their crest since 1919. But the city’s crest is reported have had a bat appear on it since the 13th century according to BBC Sport.
Maybe, DC Comics is planning a to change the look of the symbol for the upcoming Batman film that will star Ben Affleck and it will look more like the Valencia crest? Just an idea.
