What led you to change the name from Power Pete to Mighty Mike?

Mighty Mike was the original name of the game, but MacPlay / Interplay thought it was too close to Mighty Mouse (idiots) and changed it to Power Pete.  We expressed our disgust of that name, but they released it with that title anyways.  So, as soon as we got the rights back we changed the name back.

Just played (and beat) this game today.

I noticed that there's still a couple of instances where the word "Power Pete" shows up in Mighty Mike. For example, when you go to select either one player or two players, the words "Power Pete" are still on the action figure boxes. Also, the playing cards in the Bargain Bin still read "Power Pete" on them.
