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