Exactly, if he happened to make parodies or such, then we would have talked about fair use.
But what he did falls right down trademark violations, plus he probably knew that but was hoping to pass unnoticed, which is hard after you gain a certain amount of fame

LOL no, making money by using someone else's character without their consent is violating their trademark.
Stop talking about fair use and copyright if you don't even know what was wrong in what he was doing…

Absolutely. Profiting of fancontent is already really freaking shady for transformative works, but when you draw the attention of the trademark holders and they can't say they're unaware of you, not dealing with it would basically just throw that trademark out the window — fair use and copyright is one thing, trademark is another. And this was never anywhere near fair use anyway. If anyone remembers the slippers with a pony mascot, it's not really any different from that.

I don't it really matters. You have characters like Sunset who have never made an apperance in the show in any capacity and Flash who only had a few speaking lines and that's it. I wouldn't think too hard on it
