Valencia are reportedly being sued because their new logo looks like the Batman symbol

Why so serious, DC Comics?

LA LIGA CLUB Valencia have reportedly got themselves in a spot of bother with their new logo.

News website Plaza Deportiva are reporting that the Spanish club are in dispute with DC Comics in the US, who claim that the club’s bat logo infringes their Batman design.

The thing is, Valencia’s crest features a bat in honour of the city’s coat of arms, which dates back to the 13th century. This is the latest upgrade:
