This won’t make it in because it’s talking about another company, but Elastigirl from the Incredibles had to be renamed “Mrs. Incredible” on merchandise because of Rita Farr’s Elasti-Girl. Elastigirl could only be called Elastigirl in the movie and stories based on the Incredibles, similarly to how Captain Marvel can still be called Captain Marvel inside the pages of his comic, but the title has to be Shazam.
