I personally think Tim Drake needs a new superhero name instead of Red Robin because it makes him seem like he got over being replaced as robin.

I wish Kate Kane had a more original name than Batwoman.

@chisoxrox: yea ik what you mean. There are like 4 other characters with The word Bat in their name

Personally, Atom Smasher has always been hard rolling off the tongue. I also REALLY don't like Cpt. Marvel being called Shazam...then again, i never really liked Captain Marvel either.

There are so many "killers." Killer moth, killer croc, (both of those are good though). Not a big fan of Killer Frost. I'd much prefer a more subtle name that references her ice abilities. Like Frostbite, or, the Tundress.

I think Bucky Barnes should take up the U.S.Agent identity. While I understand that he took the Winter Soldier persona up again to redeem himself for the crimes he committed while under the control of the Russians, I feel that identity has just caused so much pain in his life and simply reminds him of all of that. I feel him taking up another identity and try to move on from his past would be a great development for the character.

He could even get a new uniform, being a combination of both his Captain America and Winter Soldier uniforms:

Yeah, but that's like Wolverine calling himself "Weapon X" or whatever. Plus X-23 doesn't come off that threatening when you think about it.

@war_killer: true. It sounds like a math problem or something. It would be better if they would just give her a first name like regular people

How about Power Girl, Supergirl, Batgirl/Batwoman, Aquagirl. Most of the female "sidekick" type characters seem to be very similar to their male counterparts but with "girl" "woman" or "lady" tacked on. There's a great part in the All New X-Men when Mystique is talking to Lady Mastermind about her name and she says "It seems sexist. They don't call your father 'Dude Mastermind.'"

I've also never like the name Metamorpho. It just reminds me of South Park when Cartman makes himself into a cardboard robot named Awesome-O. Also Aqualad, or anything with "lad" in it.

Anyone with lad in there name seems really juvenile and a lot of the heroines with girl on the end, Supergirl I can understand because she is related to superman but Power girl isn't really a girl, Power Woman is probably more accurate but just sound odd.

Spider-Woman, I like the name but it seems a bit odd considering the fact that she has very little to do with Spider-Man.

I think Tim Drake should stop being Red Robin and become BlackHawk or White Falcon (yes like the power ranger.)

I also think J'onn needs a better name. I'd add that Miles Morales should get his own name he can be Thee Ultimate Spider since Superior Spider is taken.

I think Wally West should be FlashBack and wear a black and yellow Flash costume. His name can also be Blitz or something.

Too lazy to think about somebody else. [×]

They aren't male versions of female characters called Fantastic or Miracle though. I think the problem is adding gender to an un-gendered name.

Exactly. Mr. Fantastic is not the male side-kick to a superheroine called Mrs. Fantastic. Then it would be the same as spider-woman, spider-girl and so on.

For me, Mr. and Mrs. Fantastic would be fine, because it's at least equal, and it was already a gendered name.

@jonny_anonymous: Well it certainly bugs me when I come across them, but for whatever reason not to the same extent as "Lad." Isk, lass may be right up there with it but no characters with that name come to mind off the top of my head.

And while we're on Mr. Fantastic that's another name I've never been fond of. Every other Fantastic Four member has a name that describes their powers, but I guess Mr. Fantastic is too good for that. They may as well just named him "That Awesome Guy who Leads the Team."

Dick Grayson. Not his super-name, but his real one.

The New 52 implies that superheroes have only been around since about 2006. There is no way in hell a modern teenager is willingly going to refer to himself as "Dick".

Because Speedy, while never as precise with an arrow, was even faster drawing and firing arrows than was Green Arrow himself.
