Great Britain has launched a new high-tech national crime-fighting agency, the SOCA. However, some people have a question about its logo.
The Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) has chosen a fierce big cat bearing its fangs and leaping over a stylised silver globe, with a crown capping it all.

It's bold but bears a striking resemblance to the logo of the 1980s children's cartoon series Thundercats. So was the comparison to the show -- which featured humanoid cats battling evil mutants in the Earth's distant future -- intentional? Soca declined to comment.
