For a super hero team the team name is important... Or at least it should be. But I can't help but wonder about some of them. Consider the following team names:
Avenger - One who takes vengeance or seeks revenge.
Is this REALLY an appropriate name for a team of super heroes? A team of punisher absolutely, but a group of people who do not believe in killing? Who believe in letting the Justice system prevail? The Avengers is the kind of name I would give a team if it consisted of
The Punisher, Wolverine, Deadpool, Cloak (without dagger), and ghost rider...
Do I even have to go there?
I cannot POSSIBLY be the only human being who looked at the name "X-Men" and thought, "What? Are these a group of transexuals who were once men, but thanks to expensive and painful surgery, they are no living happily as "not quite women" but ex-men???
Maybe I'm being picky with this one, but Omega usually implies "last." The word Omega literally means "Big O" which, to me, implies something...sexual. But let's not go there.
Yes, this group is from back in the 70s. I don't know if they've been around in the last couple of decades or not. However.... "Freedom Fighters" sounds like a para-military group staging a revolt. In fact, many "freedom fighters" are considered "terrorist", and by definition, most of them are... Just seems like a poor choice of a name for those trying to defend the innocent, and maintain order.
Birds of Prey
Think about that a moment. Birds of Prey. or just BOP for short. How about RAPTORS! All birds of prey, by definition, are raptors. THAT would have been a kewl name, don't you think?
But there's more wrong than just the acronym B.O.P. Let's consider the members of B.O.P.
Bat-Girl - Bats aren't birds; they're mammals with webbed wings. They are, however, the only mammals that can actually fly rather than glide.
Katana - Um... This is a Japanese style sword, not a bird.
Mockingbird - Okay, this one is at least a 'bird' but...Bird of Prey? It's not a raptor; it doesn't have the hooked beak nor does it use it's talons for killing. No, it sings and eats bugs and berries....
Poison Ivy - Okay, now they're not even trying! Not only is an Ivy not a bird, it's not even in the same Kingdom! This is a plant!!!
Oh COME ON!?!?!?!? Seriously? "Cyber" force? Do I even HAVE say why this is a bad choice for a super hero team name?
Um... See "cyber force"
The name "Super Friends" has never and will never strike fear into the heart of evil.... It sounds like a group of critters that live in the 100 acre woods.
I think, if I named a super hero team, I'd give them an odd name that made no sense... Just to throw the enemy off as they wondered why we called ourselves the "Cup Holders" or "Place Mats" or "Post Its" or "Shoe Horns"....
