Local Hero Part 2 or The Iliad or We Were Here Before the Copyrights And There’s No ”Sue” In Super Hero™ (Please Don't Sue Us)

The title says it all.

The third production in the series about super heroes and copyrights by Bombina Bombast that since 2014 has challenged copyright laws protecting famous and beloved characters, costumes and storylines.

The word Super Hero is patented by rivaling comic books publishers Marvel and DC. In the US the murder carries a lower penalty than unauthorized use of their protected material. The underlying theme in Local Hero Part 2… is moral: what laws can, or should, we break to do good?

So far we’ve almost been sued by Disney (that owns Marvel), worn out 12 Spiderman suits, tourned the Nordic countries and fought for our heroes with characterizing DIY-aesthetics, speaking directly to the audience and performing breathtaking stage fights. Now our heroes are tired of being underdogs and have gone back to their roots to prove to the multicorps that super powers were here before the copyrights. Aided by the Iliad Local Hero Part 2… shows how Hollywood doesn’t have exclusive rights to the moral epic with godlike heroes. Athena was there before Wonder Woman  and toga trumps cape. Showtime!

The performance consists of a work for stage and a virtual reality film.
