A: In Connecticut, trademarking your superhero characters can help protect their names and distinctive elements, preventing others from using similar marks in a way that could cause confusion. Whether you should trademark all four depends on factors like their commercial use and the level of protection you seek.

Each trademark application incurs its own set of fees. As of 2023, the cost for filing a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) generally ranges from $250 to $350 per class of goods/services, per mark. Additional costs may arise for legal assistance or if complications occur during the application process.

It's important to carefully prepare your applications to ensure they accurately reflect the characters and their use. Given the complexity and potential cost, consulting with a legal advisor experienced in trademark law can be beneficial. They can help assess the viability of trademarking your characters and guide you through the process.
