Re: Super Names

 

A few from the campaign I was recently playing in:

 

Jumpstart

The Sanity Assassin - a mentalist created to hunt other mentalists

Rainman

Azaroth - interesting variant spelling on existing name

Red Raptor - old Champions villain I don't see on the list

 

Alien hero/villain names

(I'm not really clear on your guidelines here: I would hope that you make a distinction between fantasy-sounding nonsense names and those with an alien bent, since other-dimensional and alien encounters are such a staple of comic book universes. I would also hope that a name doesn't have to have 30 apostrophes to be "alien". If they don't fit, will there be a separate alien name list):

 

Razzia (actually a team, but rolls off the tongue nicely as a single entity's name)

Korvak

 

Other stuff

- is Annihilus an existing villain in Marvel or DC? It's a great name variant that isn't present.

- how did 7218 - Sk8r Boi get past the silly filter. Avril Lavigne fan? :)

 

Thanks so much for your effort in this.

Spelled 'Korvac', this is the name of a 70's era Marvel villain.

Marvel. Annihilus is an inhabitant of an alternate dimension called the Negative Zone, to which the Fantastic Four journey from time to time.

SNIP

Poisson (French fish)

 

Interesting trivia point here. The exact same spelling also means Poison in French.

Slightly different pronunciation (pwa-Zan for poison vs. pwa-san for fish, IIRC); it's been a lotta years since high-school French.

 

I remember because our teacher made a point of telling us how Parisians would make fun of Americans who thought they knew French but didn't pronounce things correctly.

Re: Super Names

 

The low-powered team of high-school heroes Killer Rabbit and the Safety Leech.

Killer Rabbit--Desiree Delisandra Trudeau, athletic high-school princess with superleap and 1 pip of HKA. (She's got very long, sharp fingernails.) She's secretly in love with her partner and friend Bernie, and none of her 'popular' friends can understand why she lets such a loser hang out with her.

Safety Leech--Bernie Kuppleman, bright, nerdy, bespectacled teenaged boy with supress vs kinetic energy. He's in love with Desiree, but doesn't think she'd ever consider him as more than a friend. Not afraid to wade into the middle of a nasty accident in order to 'leech' the dangerous kinetic energies down to 'safe' levels.

 

Kid Charlemagne--presence attacks and a fierce HTH combatant. Natural tactician...for all that she's only about 14 years old.

 

Lady Gray--Miriam Blakely, strong willed lady detective with telekinesis and teleport customised as shadow manipulation

So, I'll give you all a few names, and get the rest straightened up soon. All these names have been checked against the last "official" list, but not against all the many, many posts in this thread. So, if I duplicate suggests already made but not accepted, my apologies.

Wither

Immaterial Girl

Cross-Eyed Mary

Cat’s Claw

Jumping Spider, The

Carat

I green-lighted Sk8r Boi because I felt the kewlified/L33t spelling actually matched well with the image of a contemporary skateboard-styled young hero.

 

I'm working on a Roundup right now. Sorry about the long absence. I got my brain back after I graduated, but a long daily commute has snatched it away again. City of Heroes isn't helping either. :)
