Booker T has filed a copyright complaint against the people behind Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for putting a character that looks like “G.I. Bro” in the game.
According to The Verge, Booker filed the lawsuit in his home state of Texas and alleges Activision Publishing, Activision-Blizzard, and Major League Gaming, plagiarized the design of Booker’s comic book alter-ego G.I. Bro. in their game “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.”
For those unfamiliar, the G.I. Bro character appeared in WCW as part of The Misfits in Action. Booker went on to create two comic books based on the character.
The “Black Ops” character in question, David “Prophet” Wilkes, bears some obvious similarities to G.I. Bro., but Booker’s lawyers don’t think the similarities are coincidental.
