....fire in the hole!

ok - seriously. Ironman brand is trademarked and owned by DC Comics. It is leased (under an agreement with undisclosed terms) to the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), also konwn to some people on this forum as "The Great Evil Satan".
WTC is the owner of the M-Dot trademark (though apparently Mistral Sport also owns part of it?) and of the Ironman 70.3 and 5150 brands.
The money goes into their shareholder's pockets and retained earnings.
Let me Google that for you. Here is the link: http://google.com/?q=World+Triathlon+Corporation+wiki

Seems like this has somehow calmed down a bit. Thankfully.
