A Thai businessman who was claiming to be the co-creator of Ultraman has been ordered to cease and desist all Ultraman activities (how cool does that sound?) and to pay 10.7 million Thai baht to Japanese Tsuburaya Productions, rightful owners of the Ultraman legacy. For more than 10 years Sompote Saengduenchai has been saying that he owner the rights to all Ultraman business outside of Japan, and that he helped invent the character. Looks like he got smacked down without the help of the Science Patrol. Now can someone just please give us a badass Ultraman movie or televsion series? It's not asking too much. [Variety]
