Bob Ingersoll The Law Is A Ass #377

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    Kurt Busiek used this topic in issues #4 & #5 of the Astro City mini-series “Local Heroes”. I wonder if this would be treated as an affirmative defense like an insanity plea or would proving that no shape shifters or mind controllers were involved become an element of the crime, placing the burden on the prosecution. A very interesting problem that would have to be addressed, given, as you pointed out, the number of shape shifters and beings with mind control powers.
