From the ever-addicting tvtropes:
Somewhere in byzantine tax codes (Toy Biz v. United States), dolls representing humans end up getting taxed heavier than toys not representing people (such as dollhouse tables or kitty cats or whatever). To capitalize on this during the release of the X-Men movie, attorneys for Marvel successfully argued that mutants are not people. They got the favorable tax rate, and the X-Men's main message gets completely broken. This sets a worrying legal precedent...


Omg. So much hilarious irony and missing the point here, don't you just love executives? Nothing is sacred, nothing! Also, this is entirely why bad things happen in the world- we don't read enough fiction, which would warn us!
