Inevitable that there would be some of that happening sometime . . .

Well, I’m by no means an authority, but the first thing to do would be establish a timeline. For the sake of this site, regardless of whether you intend to do anything else, look up the earliest possible time their character went public. Then look up any likely coincidences (the writer, illustrator’s Facebook page says they’re from your location, likes the same restaurants, happens to like your music, etc..) Because, if you can say you’re first and wouldn’t likely have overheard someone talking in another city . . . heromachine is safe, and you might decide to call a free lawyer service to ask for whatever.

If there ARE some likely possibilities of crosstalk leading to duplicate and near-simultaneous inventions, you might enter in the post a statement declaring it coincidental and non-malicious.

If THEY were clearly first, ask a moderator to rule whether it’s too derivative or it can stay.

Personally, Marvel DOES need to be trolling us for ideas. They don’t bother to WRITE.  They just reboot so often that they wind up making some fans angry and most of us confused.
