After news broke that hail-hydra.com redirected to the White House website, Marvel Comics apparently made moves to trademark the famous phrase.
On May 11, The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the domain hail-hydra.com redirected to President Donald Trump’s biography on the official White House website.
Marvel applied to make “Hail Hydra” a registered trademark, Comicbook.com reported May 21. The trademark rights would extend to everything from electronic comic books to graphic novels and websites.
It’s unclear whether the company chose to trademark the phrase because of the redirect. Marvel representatives did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
