TRUE STORY: Four or five years ago, the “Real Dr. Weil” e-mailed a nasty letter to Capcom of America when he discovered his name belonged to a fictional “evil scientist.” (Zero series' Weil) “Real” Weil took this as an offense.
“Real” Weil threatened Capcom, but thankfully, the fine folks down at marketing explained that the issue was just a coincidence. No harm intended.
Source on little tidbit can be found on the archives of “The MegaMan Network”, though I'm too lazy to dig up the link. Happy hunting!
