Naming controversyEdit

"I am not sure why no one ever really stood up to them before..."
SuperHero Quest

The original logo for the game.

While the game was originally called something else, DC and Marvel complained to Artix Entertainment, claiming that they had joint copyright over the word "SuperHero". Artix Entertainment renamed the game, but Adam Bohn wrote a letter of complaint to DC and Marvel, saying that "SuperHero" is was a very common, generic word.[1]

It is unknown what Marvel and DC's response was to the letter, or if they have received it at all.
