Its not really the fact that no one denied it (mainly because they would get destroyed in the courthouse if they did) more the fact that they don't publise the fact and thus most people don't know - myself included. Its just a bit of knowledge for those "Did you know.." sessions ;)

I saw a show on like the history channel or something talking about comic heroes, and when they talked about Batman, they clearly said it, so they weren't hiding it at all.

Why wasn't Gordon Freeman number one on that list? He's just a shameless ripoff of Link. Anyone who actually plays a game and notices characters have more than names would notice THAT.

Because when you think of it, everything is a ripoff of something.

The Bible is a ripoff of the Epic of Gilgamesh.

That was funny, the Kimba thing. Not surprising - Disney hasn't had an original thought in their life, either borrowing already-written fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm or using (read: bastardizing and raping) a Rudyard Kipling book, or making a Hans Christian Andersen book into a movie that was even more disgustingly saccharine than its source material.
