May It Please The Court…

The New York Times spotlights a new comics blog investigating Superhero law.

Law and the Multiverse: Superheroes, Supervillains, and the Law investigates how everyday law would affect superheroes.  Contracts, immigration, insurance claims, and the Americans with Disabilities Act are just some of the recent discussions.  (Is Clark Kent a legal U.S. citizen?  Is a mutant gene a disability?)  James Daily and Ryan Davidson, both lawyers, collaborate on the site.  While detailed with citations to pertinent laws, and a bit dry at times, it highlights aspects of superhero comics not usually discussed online.
