Los Angeles - A federal judge has ruled that the heirs of one of Superman's creators have no right to reclaim copyrights to the Man of Steel.

Heirs of Superman artist Joe Shuster sought to reclaim the copyrights, but a judge ruled they relinquished that right more than two decades ago.

The ruling on Wednesday means that DC Comics and its owner Warner Bros will retain all rights to continue using the character in books, films, television and other mediums.

DC Comics sued Shuster's heirs in 2010, seeking a ruling that it owns the Superman copyrights.

Her attorney Marc Toberoff wrote in a statement that he respectfully disagrees with the ruling.
