'Superman's daughter' continues fight with Warner Bros.

Don't make him angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.
Laura Siegel Larson is telling Superman fans her side of the story. The daughter of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel and Joanne Siegel has been embroiled in a long legal battle over rights to the character with Warner Bros.

As with many legal disagreements, The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog reports that the case has been messy and complicated. Larson won a court ruling in 2008 involving the first editions of Action Comics, where Superman made his debut. More recently, DC Comics, a subsidiary of Warners filed suit against Larson and her lawyer, Marc Toberoff, for allegedly "attempting to interfere with its contractual hold on the franchise," Heat Vision said. DC also accused Toberoff of fraud.

Larson has broken her silence on the case, issuing the following letter:
