Top Ten Terrible Heroes and Hero Names

I should add writing this to my previous list.

10. Friendly Neighborhood Eviscerator

Does whatever viscera can?

9. Terror Bull

It almost works, and then your rescuer leaps toward you yelling “I’m Terror Bull!”

8. Malandragem

Yes, it SOUNDS awesome. But it’s proof you didn’t research the meaning of your hero name.

7. Battle Flying Spaghetti Monster

It almost worked for the pope, but in this context it just doesn’t make sense. I mean who is your sidekick, word salad?

6. Puce Lantern

Can be an awesome color. The name does not lend itself to striking fear in the hearts of men.

5. The Amazing Pink Fairy Armadillo

It’d be easier to call yourself “Iron Unicorn”

4. Captain Doctor

Sure, you have superhuman abilities to heal others. And the name’s format is a classic. But this one didn’t work out for you. Try Blue Cross or Caregiver or something.

3. Wobbegong-Man

Yes, a shark-themed hero seems cool. And yes, a lot of the cool shark names are already in use with other costumed character. But this is still a mistake.

2. Soviet Dodo
He’ll extinct YOU.

1. He-Shulk

Actually I’d be okay with this one – fair’s fair. Also acceptable; Palkyrie, Himazon, and Bat-Himbo.
