Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Enterprises announced that they've settled the lawsuit filed by Fox over the Mutant X television show (see 'Fox Sues Marvel Over Mutant X') almost two years ago. Terms of the deal are confidential, but are 'designed to put the lawsuit behind and expand the relationship between Fox and Marvel.' Fox filed the suit because it had the exclusive TV rights to X-Men projects, and it alleged that Mutant X was too close to X-Men. In August of 2001, a court ruling allowed the show to go forward, but also determined that the title infringed on Fox's rights. Because of the lawsuit, there had been no licensing of the property, although ADV recently acquired the DVD rights (see 'ADV Snags Video Rights for Mutant X').
