One of the Duke Nukum Shareware versions with the Nukum title

Duke Nukum was the title of the 2.0 version of Duke Nukem, the first video game in the Duke Nukem franchise. The "e" was changed to a "u" in order to avoid a lawsuit with the Captain Planet cartoon show. However, Apogee subsequently learned that the name was not copyrighted, so they registered it and used it for all future titles.
