Let's say I create a fire-based character that has a flaming skull. No black leather jacket with spikes, no chains, no motorcycle (cuz we don't have any), no "Ghost" or "Rider" in his name.
My question is if the flaming skull by itself would make my character infringe copyright laws. I get confused with this sometimes, I really would like to use this concept on my character, but attracting the Big Mouse wrath to this game is absolutely the last thing I want.
So, is it cool to follow with this, or should I abandon the flaming skull concept for good?
