      There is a character in Marvel that is a super hero named Match.

      Also there is a character in DC Comics Match that is a super villain of Superboy (Conner Kent) a clone of a clone.
      Is there no problem with using the name because other than the name match they are different characters?

      Jason, No, just like Marvel can have a Phoenix and so can Atlas.  The name itself is not unique enough. Hope this helps, Darci

        I think the problem would be more if the name was truly recognizable with the company, like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Captain America, etc. And don t

          And don't forget that both Marvel AND DC have heroes named "Captain Marvel" . . . Marvel has the rights to use that name as a title, so DC has had to use variations of "Shazam!" for it's comics with Captain Marvel. (But they can still call the Big Red Cheese "Captain Marvel" within the comics.)
