@danhimself:
Siegel and Shuster were screwed, Jack Kirby was screwed, Alan Moore was screwed, Bill Finger was screwed the list goes on forever, Stan Lee himself sued Marvel and won when they tried to screw him but his high profile prevented it.....Nonsense! Whatever constitutes "The Deal" has always varied and was inconsistent at Marvel and DC, changing as often as Ownership and Management....Contracts were often verbal in the past only today do creators get treated sort of fairly....Greed?? Foolish nonsense, If I punched your Dad in the head you would not let me get away with it, Would wanting to get even be greed?....What they contributed isn't relevant to the Superman case, what is relevant is that they created him before they sold him to DC, hence they can reclaim him legally at this time. Real Superman fans know this. Alan Got screwed DC wishes he would work with them, but because they are a bunch of liars we'll never see some great stuff. Alan Moore doesn't need DC. I'm pretty sure it's only certain properties he cared about at DC anyway Watchmen, V for Vendetta, y'know DC's only successful movies outside of Batman. Anyway no need for me to defend a legend Alan's work will be around causing discussion long after he's gone thanks to DC's pigheadedness and Greed. Funny how people call the Heirs Greedy. Wake Up!

Well said.

To sum it up Jim Lee convinced Alan to join Wildstorm and create ABC. That was before DC owned Wildstorm. Contracts signed and stories plotted Lee sold Wildstorm and that allowed DC to get Moore back in the stable even if once removed. Moore was debating not doing the ABC stuff, but because he didn't want to screw over his friends he made an agreement with Lee that DC would have no contact with him. DC screwed that up by censoring, pulping and editing his work at ABC. If DC let him be then may be he would still be writing for ABC.

Huh... I see... Who knew...

quite a bit and those people would never say Alan is not justice for not liking DC. Morrison is treated like a King and Moore is bullied.

I appreciate your opinion. LOL. I'm sure Moore has his reasons.
