A lawyer representing DC Comics and Marvel says the comics giants are suing a Jerusalem vendor for selling Jewish skullcaps, or kippas, adorned with unauthorized images of crime-fighting superheroes Batman and Spiderman. Lawyer Chagay Netzer said the "Kippa Man" store was violating the intellectual property rights of both companies. DC Comics and Marvel are each demanding 25,500 U.S. dollars in damages and expect the store to stop selling the kippas. (AP Photo/Maya Hasson, File)
