Law and the Multiverse
Have you ever wondered "Does Batman's close cooperation with the Gotham police department make him a state actor for Fourth Amendment purposes? Is evidence that he gathers even admissible?" Well, I did.

Law and the Multiverse is about overthinking the legal implications of common comic book tropes, characters, and powers. I've tried to keep the style and content accessible to the layperson, and you might even learn a thing or two about the law along the way. Of course, these are just light-hearted hypotheticals and are no substitute for legal advice from your attorney, who I am not. If you're planning to become a masked vigilante or villain, consult a competent attorney in your jurisdiction.
I welcome any ideas, suggestions, and feedback.
By the way, does anyone know of a good source for comic book images? I'd like to include illustrations, but I don't know how to get them except the obvious, non-kosher way. I think my use of a few, small images would be covered under fair use as a non-profit educational commentary, so it's getting them in the first place that's the trouble.
