Spanish soccer team getting sued for using Batman logo

This gives “batsuit” a whole different meaning.

DC Comics has filed a lawsuit against La Liga soccer team Valencia CF, claiming it used the Batman logo in the latest iteration of the team logo.

Here’s more from FOX Soccer:

According to Spanish newspaper Plaza Deportiva, DC Comics has reportedly filed a complaint with the OHIC, the European Union’s trademark registration organization, over the new design.

The company claims that Valencia’s latest variation on the Spanish football club’s logo, which shows the bat’s wings upwardly outstretched, is awfully similar to the infamous Batman call sign.
