hello. you should be careful, it is not advisable to use a domain that contains another's TM, especially if the domain is being used in connection with similar goods or services to that of the TM....because that will be viewed as bad faith / TM infringement. If the use of the TM is incidental and the domain is not used in connection with same/similar goods or services then it is likely not an issue. Also, if the TM is very famous/established (e.g. Disney or Comic Book characters, sports teams, major brands.....e.g. Batman, MickeyMouse, Nike, etc )then nothing else really matters, you will be in trouble.
