Art Theft Strikes Again

I was checking out the latest game from Hithere, King and Conqueror.

At the very beginning of the game I was asked to choose a profile picture for my Hero, and noticed one of the options looked suspiciously like the Hulk. There was another that seemed familiar as well. After I built up some Mines I went to build some troops and staring back at me was an image from Pascal Blanche (second row).

I did some research and it turns out the Hulk image was done by Jonas Thornqvist. Now, I suppose it’s possible that Hithere got permission from the artists to use their work, but I sort of doubt it. Further, the Hulk is owned by Marvel, and it’s quite unlikely that Hithere would be able to get the rights to use him here. This is very similar to what Castle Age was caught doing a while back… We’ll see what happens.
