Reports are coming in that comics legend Len Wein - creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing, writer of the "All New, All-Different" X-Men
team, and editor of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen

and most recently the current series, Robots In Disguise

We've learned from Variety today of a suit that was filed by Hasbro against DC Comics over the use of Bumblebee. Hasbro is accusing DC of trademark infringement based on at least one toy in the DC Super Hero Girls line of the DC hero character Bumblebee. Hasbro succeeded in late 2015 in registering a trademark on the name Bumblebee in the by now familiar field of toy action figures, vehicles, and robots convertible into other forms. The suit claims the possibility of causing brand confusion and/or being deceptive to consumers, as is fairly standard in this type of proceeding. Read on for more info!

The keen-eyed trademark watches at Transformers@The Moon have reported on Hasbro's latest Transformers trademark: Cybertronics.
What does it mean and what is it for? We won't know for a while, most likely, but it's a toy-related trademark. Could be the tagline for a new action-feature, could be a subline of some sort... or it could even be the subtitle of the animated series to follow Robots In Disguise.
All we can tell you for sure is that, had it been registered 10 or so years ago, it would've been spelled with an X. Keep reading for info on the trademark!
