NBC Heroes Hit With Lawsuit

It’s sad to say, although it doesn’t surprise me in the least – NBC Heroes has been hit with a lawsuit. What can I say, I’m not surprised someone is coming out of the woodwork and slapping the network with a lawsuit, I’m actually surprised it took someone this long to go after a slice of the NBC pie. Heroes has been an incredible success and it was only a matter of time before someone got the scent of money in their nose and claimed to have come up with the whole idea. Luckily the fact that it’s nothing more than a blatant attempt at a money grab should significantly decrease the chances of anything negative actually coming out of this entire debacle. After all, chances are the people behind the suit are just fishing for a pay off, which they will most likely get, so NBC can sweep the issue under the rug. Unfortunate, but most likely true.

Two artists from New York are behind the money grubbing lawsuit and claim that two writers for NBC’s Crossing Jordan attended their art showing and stole the idea for NBC Heroes from a short story, mini series and short film put together by the couple. Clifton Mallery and wife Amnau Karem Eele specifically claim to be the source of NBC’s inspiration for the Heroes character Isaac Mendez, referring to one of their characters who has the ability to paint the future, including the destruction of two New York landmarks.

Surprisingly enough, a spokesperson for the hit TV show Heroes went on record as saying, “We intend to defend it vigorously and expect to prevail.” If this statement is in fact true, which I doubt it is, and NBC decides to fight these money grabbers, I look forward to seeing how everything plays out!

Don’t forget, NBC Heroes is on hiatus until April 23rd, when the season will return in full force with episode 19 “0.7%”. As sad as it is that Heroes is on hiatus, the sadder fact still is that there are a mere fives episodes left in volume one! I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to see how everything ends!

  1. WHAT’S REALLY SAD ABOUT THE COMMENTS MADE ON THIS SITE ABOUT THE TWINS SUING NBC IS THAT THESE COMMENTS ARE MADE BY PEOPLE THAT DO NOT HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS TO THE LAWSUIT. AT THE END OF THE DAY WHAT MATTERS IS THE FACTS AND WHAT THE JUDGE AND JURY WILL THINK.

    ANYONE CAN GOOGLE THE TWINS NAMES ENJAI EELE AND AMNAU EELE AND READ A STORY WRITTEN ABOUT THE TWINS AND THEIR ABILITY TO PAINT AND WRITE THE FUTURE. THE ARTICLE RAN AUGUST 5, 2004 IN THE NY DAILY NEWS.

    IN SEVERAL INTERVIEWS TIM KRING CLAIMS HE CAME UP WITH THE IDEA FOR HEROES AND THE ARTIST THAT CAN PAINT THE FUTURE IN OCT-NOV 2005.

    I’M STILL WAITING FOR STAN LEE OR ANYBODY AT NBC TO PRODUCE AN ARTIST THAT CAN PAINT THE FUTURE FROM A PAST COMIC BOOK,TV SHOW OR FILM. WHERE IS THIS ARTIST IN THE COMIC BOOK WORLD ? WHERE IS THIS ARTIST IN THE HISTORY OF TV & FILM MAKING ? NAME
    THE ACTOR THAT PLAYED THIS ARTIST ?

    I SAW THE TWINS AT HUNTER COLLEGE APRIL 22, 2005 AND I LISTENED AS THEY TOLD THE AUDIENCE HOW THEY LEFT TEXAS BEFORE 9-11-01 WITH A PAINTING CALLED THE ATTA PAGE TO STOP 9-11-01 IN NYC BEFORE IT HAPPENED. ( DOESN’T THIS SOUND LIKE THE ISAAC MENDEZ AND HIRO STORYLINE ? ).
    AT HUNTER COLLEGE THE TWINS DISCUSSED A FUTURE BUS BLOWING UP AT TIMES SQUARE AND THEY SHOWED A NEWSPAPER CLIPPING TO VALIDATE THEIR CLAIM. ( DIDN’T ISAAC MENDEZ DO THE SAME THING IN EPISODE ONE ? ).

    THE ATTA PAGE IS BASED ON THE FACT THAT THERE ARE 9 LETTERS IN THE WORD MANHATTAN AND 11 LETTERS IN THE NAME MOHAMED ATTA. ATTA IS ALSO IN THE WORLD manhATTAn. THE TWINS TOLD US AT HUNTER COLLEGE THAT ATTA WAS SENT TO DESTROY THE TWIN TOWERS BECAUSE WHENEVER WE LOOK AT THE WORD manh ATTA n WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE NAME ATTA AND WHAT HE DID ON 9-11-01.
    I DON’T THINK TIM KRING IS INTELLIGENT OR TALENTED ENOUGH TO CREATE ART OR A STORYLINE ON THIS LEVEL. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TWINS AND THEIR DIVINATION ART WORK, SEE THEIR FILM “THE LETTER” AS I DID THEN MAKE YOUR JUDGEMENT CALL.

    I AM VERY HAPPY THAT THE TWINS CHOSE TO COME FORWARD WITH THIS LAWSUIT. THIS LAWSUIT IS GOING TO BLOW HOLLYWOOD AND THE WORLD AWAY !!!!

  2. Well, you either work for NBC or you need to get out of the house more often. The concept of the show is great but it’s written like a soap opera. Aren’t superheroes supposed to be eventful? It almost seems like it’s one long,drawn idea after another.
