                          In the settlement both parties agreed that it was important
                           for the users to still be able to create their favorite super
                        heros but it was still important to protect Marvel’s intelectual
                           property. This is why the character creation engine in the
                           game was not affected by the trial. While the terms of the
                           settlement were not disclosed, all parties agreed that the
                         case was never about monetary issues and that the fans of
                        their respective products and characters were the winners in
                                                   the settlement.

                           Wolverine (left) and the Hulk (right) are just two of many
                            characters involved in the case. Some others include
                             Flash, Storm,and the Green Lantern to name a few.
