It doesn't matter if they have the most awesome powers imaginable, a lame name can ruin it all. Sadly, most characters with lame names have usually have the lame powers to match.

Speaking of the devil.

Enter, Condiment King!

If this guy was meant to be a joke it was in extremely.....bad taste.

Paste Pot Pete

Luckily he changed his name into Trapster

I once heard of a guy named The Codpiece whose name was apparently very straightforward when it comes to describing his powers

Black lighting? Really? Come on. That's like calling Jamie Reyes "Hispanic Insect" Or Cyclops "White Eye Beams."

@xanni15: sorry x//D

Ah~ xDDD Well Bats and Spidey would really sound ridiculous if they were translated <__<°

When I looked into a german X-Men Comic, I saw that they had translated Avengers into "Rächer"... I put the Comic back onto the shelf and had to go, otherwise I would've went green on the comic x"DD

(Rächer IS the correct translation, but it sounds so stupid -.-)

Mr. Polka Dot for the villain.

D-Man for the hero, other stupid ones like Hawkman/Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman along with Squirrel Girl.

Penguin, the Top, Whizzer, Wil O Wisp, Riddler, Spot, Peepers, Captain Cold, Abra Kadabra, Mr. Fantastic, Prankster, Starfox, Kangaroo, Grizzly, Mr. Terrific, Mr. Freeze, Calendar Man, Paste Pot Pete, Bizarro, Toad, Blob, the Melter, Plastic Man, Squirrel Girl, D-Man, Shaggy Man and many more. Seriously do any of these names strike fear into anyone? Lmfao

@lone_wolf_and_cub: I think most of those names sound cool, but I think it could be, because my native language is german and most english words sound cooler then they would, if you translate them. *thinks of translating those names just for fun*

The more I think about it, the more I notice how stupid a name "Aquaman" is.

A number of Daredevil villains have ridiculous names AND powers: Stilt-Man, Leap-Frog, Man-Bull etc.

All the Robin's have been awesome characters, but let's face it...

Robin is kind of a stupid name. At least Grayson and Todd got cool names like Nightwing, and Red Hood.

Hexenacht

Why? Her name's supposed to mean "Nightwitch", but that's wrong. Hexenacht means "Witch Night" so it's a really really bad attempt of using german words for a "cool" hero name -__-°

Nightwitch would be Nachthexe.

That looks like a cross between Wolverine and Classic Daredevil.
