From the introduction:

. in 2001 DC Comics had reached an agreement to license and control the Siegel’s 50% stake – they already control co-creator Joe Shuster’s 50% share, until 2020 when the Shuster heirs are expected to file suit – when talks fell apart and the Siegel’s walked. The other side of the story is that DC changed the terms of the deal at the last minute leaving the Siegel’s with no choice but to terminate the negotiations. DC have since counter-claimed that the Siegel’s were led into withdrawing from signing the contract in 2001 at the eleventh hour by their current lawyer, Marc Toberoff. As it stood the Siegel’s then filed suit, in 2004, against DC Comics, seeking to validate their ownership, in addition to seeking further rights and to also demand that DC Comics give a full accounting of the money that had been realized since 1999 by the Superman franchise.

The argument was that DC Comics had undervalued Superman and licensed the rights to exploit the character in movies and television by dealing with their parent company, Warner Brothers. DC argued that it had always done the right thing, that the deals negotiated and that the payments received, going back to the Salkind era (the 1970/1980s Superman movies with Christopher Reeve) and extending through to the current deals, including the television series Lois and Clark and the highly successful Smallville, along with the most recent movies, were more than fair and indeed over market value. The argument to resolve this was taken to a ten day bench trial, at which time DC Comics would have to prove that it had not undersold Superman, and the Siegel’s would have to prove otherwise. The trial gave a great insight into the machinations of comic books and motion pictures along with the true value of Superman, as a multi-media concept.

This book, which will only be available as a digital download with a new, stunning cover designed by Michael Netzer, captures the entire trial, from start to finish. Every word uttered in court is here – with one notable exception – and the testimonies of Mark Evanier and Paul Levitz are fully intact. You’ll read Levitz explain the many deals done for Superman from an insider point of view and how DC Comics very nearly bought Marvel Comics in the late 1990s. You’ll read Evanier discussing how Siegel and Shuster have been screwed over the decades, along with mention motion picture and entertainment experts giving their own views on just how valuable the Superman property is.

Also included are a smattering of rare images, the final court findings, plus two further court appearances in the form of status reports.

From the introduction:

. In 2001 negotiations had stalled. The Siegel Estate was unhappy with the final offer that DC Comics had put on the table. The offer called for the Siegel Estate to hand over their portion of the copyright in return for a non-returnable advance of two million dollars, a non-returnable, non-recoupable advance of one million dollars and a minimum annual guarantee of $500,000, along with a 6% gross royalty of Superman and a 1% royalty of every Superman publication that DC Comics published. Added into the deal were assurances of medical health care, credit for Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and other bonuses. After the deal was accepted, in principle, the fur began to fly. Depending upon who you believe, either DC Comics changed the deal in some form, resulting in the Siegel Estate sacking their legal council and electing to hire the IP lawyer that the Shuster heirs had been dealing with – Marc Toberoff. If you believe DC Comics, Mark Toberoff stepped into the picture and lured the Siegel Estate away from the negotiation table for his own gain. Either way the Siegel Estate and DC Comics were at war once more.

Nearly 30,000 people have downloaded Volume I of The Trials Of Superman, and the feedback has been amazing. The response was that great that I’ve decided to do two additional volumes, so here, without any delay, is The Trials Of Superman Volume II.

This book, which will only be available as a digital download with a stunning cover designed by Michael Netzer, captures all of the available depositions, with the bulk of them complete. You’ll read the words of Jerry Siegels wife, Joanne and daughter Laura, Joe Shuster’s sister Jean, who recounts her memories of seeing Joe draw the first ever Superman story, along with Marc Toberoff explaining just how he managed to land the Siegels and the Shuster estate as clients and some tantalising snippets from Jim Steranko, Mark Waid and Mark Evanier. Read how sad Joe Shusters last years were. Read how bitter and angry at DC Comics Joanne Siegel became. Read nearly ten years of manipulations and machinations from both sides of the fence. There’s some interesting information in the depositions, along with some serious accusations and, of course, what would a long running court case be without two lawyers having a verbal stoush? It’s all in here, and much more. If you’re one of the 30,000 people who downloaded Volume I of this series, then you’ll want to download and read Volume II – the perfect companion!

This Volume has been completely revised, with a new introduction and more depositions, including the latest September 2020 deposition of lawyer Marc Toberoff.

Belief has many forms. Some believe in brands, others in a manifest. All three large religions – muslims, jews and christians – have the same origin and share similar values. Even more the categoric imperative is an integral part of every religion. The fundamentals who kill in the name of their god abuse religion for their personal mordlust. True believers are liberal, they are open-minded and don’t force their opinion upon others. May creativity and art unite!
