Infantino speaks: The London Times has more on Carmine Infantino's $4 million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and DC Comics over the rights to The Flash, Batgirl and other characters:

Mr. Infantino said he decided to sue while watching an interview with a Warner Bros executive, who named the characters but did not name their creator.

“They never once mentioned me. I was really insulted,” Mr Infantino said.

He contacted Warner Bros two years ago to claim compensation but was insulted by its $25,000 offer.

“I said, ‘I’ll give you $25,000 and you give me the characters.’ That shut them up.”
The article highlights Infantino's extensive free-lance work for DC, but doesn't mention the time he spent as an editor or publisher.
