Is thwip owned by Marvel? Same with SNIKT! or Bamf!

Since there arn't many webslinging metal clawed teleporters over in DC, I was curious if anyone knew did Marvel actually own/trademark these words as their own?

Any help greatly appreciated

I don't know, but I doubt it.

I don't think you can trademark an onomatopoeia

@batkevin74: Doubt they own it but I don't think it would be wise for DC to use them.

Probably. Didn't they have a "Snikt" tee shirt awhile ago?

Snikt is trademarked. Couldn't find thwip and there are several "Bamfs" on file.

@batkevin74: No worries, once you asked I became a little curious myself! Interesting stuff, glad to help :)

@bumpyboo: I looked but didn't actually know where to look. I type bamf into google and just got Nightcrawler pics & bios. Helps me forumlate a trivia question or two

@batkevin74: Hehe, same here, it was a tricky little beggar to find, had to do a bit of crafty digging :)
