Many iconic characters comic book names tend to follow a pattern in which they seem to repeat the first letter in the first and last name or may sound similar. I also noticed that Superman's writers have a thing for L names.
Examples: Lois Lane, , Lana Lang, Lex Luthor, Clark Kent (C and K pronounced similar)
Other comic references:
Peter Parker, Bruce Banner, Reed Richards, Susan Storm, Wally West, Guy Gardner
But this isn't always true as look at these iconic names that don't follow this pattern:
Bruce Wayne, Barry Allen, Hal Jordan, Ben Grimm, Johnny Storm, Tony Stark, Steve Rodgers
Is the matching letters a coincidence? A tool to easily remember them?
