Back in the 90s, there was a concerted effort among movie producers to develop a new Superman film. Few of the people involved were devoted to the comic. A plethora of treatments floated around, each of which left much to be desired.
One of the ideas that came and went was that Lex Luthor and the evil alien Brainiac would somehow blot out the sun, the source of Supermans power, and unleash the monster Doomsday to kill him. I was reminded of this loony plot element recently when a friend forwarded me a peculiar story about a woman who now claims to own the sun.

Fine. We can all sue her for our next case of sunburn. Is she legally liable for any heat related deaths that occur? What about crops withering in droughts?
Wait until the Hacienda (tax department) charges her property taxes. But then it a foreign holding - but as she is a Spanish citizen perhaps her world-wide holdings and income are in play here. World-wide? Well not exactly sort of Out of this world.
Then of course she could also contest it as it is not being actually land, but it is an illegal unregistered nuclear fusion plant and I am sure she cannot produce the Environmental Impact statement. On the other hand the whose environment is it.
Mmmmmmmm -— gonna give up
It gets worse, I think that Spain operates on a modified Napoleonic Code, ie. Guilty until the defendant proves their innocence! Thus she needs to prove that she doesn't owe tax or that she has a right to run an uncontrolled fusion reactor ...
I refuse to take her seriously till she gets a Mini-Me.
