Favorite new blog

My new favorite blog is Law and the Multiverse in which two midwestern lawyers geek way the hell out entertaining their own and their readers' legal questions regarding comic book characters.
Here we turn our attention to the hypothetical legal ramifications of comic book tropes, characters, and powers. Just a few examples: Are mutants a protected class? Who foots the bill when a hero damages property while fighting a villain? What happens legally when a character comes back from the dead?
And it's likely that there are indeed some super-powered folks out there, or some extra-capable mutants who seriously appreciate the work done by this blog's authors. When these extra-normals inevitably come out of their closets/pods/lairs, this blog will no doubt instantly transform from nerdcore to provisional legal precedent.
