Will GW go for "Malekith the Dark Elf" from Thor 2?

Just saw all the marvel movies, best was Infinity War.

GW should send a cease and desist to Disney regarding that character.

    Lol, GW sending a cease and desist for the character they plagiarised?

    Malekith (marvel) first appeared in 1984.


    Malekith (GW) first appeared in 4 th edition warhammer, so about 1994-5?

    GW going after content creators for IP breaches is another example of how we are living in a boring dystopia.

    I wonder what happens if marval aka Disney goes after Gw. Sure we will miss Malekith but sacrifice have to be made.

    Didn't they change his name in AoS for that reason

    She had fought beside Aenarion in the days of her youth, killing daemons, slaughtering the enemies of her people with wild abandon. She had cast spells and brewed poisons and worked out battle strategies for his armies. She had used her gift of visions to grant the elves victories innumerable.

    The so-called high elves had forgotten that now, preferring to cast her as the villain in the simple-minded morality plays they so enjoyed since her son had sundered the realm. They had no idea what it had cost to win those battles back when all thought the world was ending, or the price she had paid for victory.

    Malekith (GW) is definitely 1000 times better than one from Marvel. Not being biased, GW writing is inconsistent to say the least but so is superhero genre. And that guy looks like a joke.

    No reason to argue to this. It's clearly different IPs despite the similarities. Also, I just read Marvel had the naming convention first

    Also if this was relevant it should be posted on GW's site not CA's.

    Close thread.

    hey you, don't close my thread. It is tw warhamemr related cause if Disney beats GW and gets the cease and desist, CA would have to remove or change malekith from WH2, meaning we could have the right to ask for THE FULL WH2 COST back since it is not what was promised in the WH2 trailer. Will never happen tho.

    Malekith became Malerion in AoS, so GW already admitted defeat on that front.

    Comic Malekith is actually pretty cool (though not as cool as GW Malekith), but both are infinitely better than Christopher Genericston.

    ..And both bare no reselblence to the traditional depiction of Dark Elfs (Dokkolfar, Swarfelf) mentioned in mythology. I look at both and chuckle. Will chuckle some more when both these corporate companies try to rob each other of their silly copyright claims.

    Actually.. when that happens I shall cackle like a Drow.

    Corporatism is the bane of any creative expression.

    To be fair, this can be said of about any fantasy race that isn't an original creation. Any elf, goblin, dwarf, gnome, troll, minotaur and whatnot in fantasy is as far remote from the original legends as can be !

    Lol thats pretty funny.

    Waiting for GW to try to copyright the entire dictionary.

    I would not be surprised in the least if Disney actually did get a **** you letter.

    Lol and next GW could sue the Tolkien estate for their use of elves, dwarfs, and orcs which they clearly stole from GW.

    The Malekith thing will never stop being hilarious. I love how some idiot at GW read a Thor comic and was like "Oh Malekith must be the king of the dark elves in mythology! Everything from Thor is based on mythology!"

    Better than the version in the MCU(who was super bland). Not better than the one in the comics.

    you mean my buddy MALERION? lol Can't wait to see him fight against Tyranion and his brother Teclar!

    I think GW actually came up with the names Tyrion and Teclis themselves.

    Honestly, this is the logic i'd expect from the people that invented Ferrrus Manus, the iron-handed primarch of the Iron Hands
