Empire City - Escalating an already bad situation between the
two high-powered groups, the League of Super Champions took its fight
against the Legion of Supreme Crooks to the courts today, claiming
that their arch-enemies were causing confusion among loyal readers

"Fuck 'EMMMMM®!" interrupted Dead Spot, The Racketeer's juvenile
partner in crime. The phrase "Fuck 'EMMMMM®!" is a
registered trademark of No Apologies! Press, used under license by
the Legion of Super Crooks.
