Yep, that's right. Batman has sued DC Comics. But no, before you get all 'Grant Morrison was right, comics are gaining sentience' on me, it's not quite how it sounds. Unfortunately.
The real story is almost as bizarre though. Apparently, in a story found in greater detail here, the oweners of the Batman character, that would be DC Comics, are being sued by the mayor of the Turkish city of Batman. Yeah, there's a city of Batman in Turkey. Who knew?
Even better, according to Wikipedia, the city of Batman is situated on the Batman river, and is the capital of the Batman Province.
Holy geography Batman!
Seriously, does this have any (legal) legs whatsoever?
