Who was this supposed to parody? Also, what delightfully sad thing did that person do in response?

(The timings of questions on here have seemingly gotten offset by about 12 hrs. Mea culpa.  I’ll try to catch up from tomorrow onwards.)

Answer:

Jack Thompson, the lawyer who went around suing the crap out of game studios since he didn’t like the violence.

Someone (an end user) made a Jack Thompson character using a custom character creator in Mortal Kombat: Alliance. Jack saw red and sued Midway for this, too :P

    Jack Thompson a lawyer working against Take-two’s ‘Bully game, put a cease and desist order to prevent this parody from spreading.
    And then the streisand effect happened.

    Here he’s seen fighting against Hulk Hogan, I think.

    Anti-gaming zealot attorney, Jack Thompson due to his exploits in going after GTA: SA.
    He filed a cease and desist, I believe.
    Which couldn\’t really go anywhere since it was a player created meme and MK: A never included his likeness, specifically


  3. Jack Thompson, who sent a letter to midway demanding they cease and desist selling mortal kombat armageddon.

    Jack Thompson depicted in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon by an enterprising gamer who used the “create a character” tool to construct a lawyer who violently fights against violence.

    The true wacko Jacko then issued a C&D to Midway for unauthorised/illegal use of his images!


  7. jack thompson.
    as expected, he filed a cease and desist litigation against the makers of Mortal Kombat (Midway Games).

    In response, he sent a letter to Midway Games, demanding they cease and desist selling the latest game of Mortal Kombat claiming that the game was illegally profiting on his likeness.

    Social Activist/Attorney Jack Thompson. The character was created in the Mortal Kombat:Armageddon game using the game’s kreate-a-fighter mode.

    So Thompson sent a letter to Midway Games, the game’s publisher demanding they cease and desist the game, claiming that the game was illegally profiting on his likeness.
    Which Midway did not.
