This superhero RPG debuted on the Apple IIGS as Mighty Marvel vs. the Forces of Evil, but some powerful, lawyered-up entity must have noticed and demanded a change of title.

(Probably the forces of evil.)

Owner Resource

ISM9 0 contains the original title, suggesting that it was initially going to be used on this port.

Mighty Marvel vs. the Forces of Evil v1.0

Window Title

The title for the about box—unseen because it has no title bar—is about surgeon. This text is left over from the later revisions of ISM's first Mac game, The Surgeon.
