    And that is why I will not put up with jokes about the "Cowardly French."

    My girlfriend dressed up as a policewoman and told me I was under arrest on suspicion of being good in bed.
     
    After 2 minutes all charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence.

    Not bad, Tjack.  Here are my suggestions--
     
    Olympia and Amazonia are partners in the fanfic.  Their names are--Thunder Woman and Lightning Speed, Guardians Of The Greater Good!
    Enigma 7 becomes--Nemesis, Enemy Of Evil! 
    Scarborough Faire becomes--Magik-Maker, Mistress Of The Arcane!
    The Blonde Fury becomes--Maxi-Maiden, Towering Power For Justice!
    Briar Rose becomes--Silver Stinger, Precision Instrument Against Crime!
     
    Hope that helps.

    Okay, let's see what comes to mind.
     
    Regarding Olympia, the name plus her apparently electrical powers sound like they're meant to evoke Zeus. In that case I'd consider something similar from a different mythology. I'm thinking of Vajra, the weapon of the Hindu storm god Indra.
     
    In a similar vein, I think Tjack is onto something by looking at warrior women from another mythology; but "Valkyrie" sounds a little too on-the-nose, since the character's name isn't "Amazon." A comparable permutation would match more closely. How about Valkyrian?
     
    For Enigma 7, something containing Kryptos, the Greek word for "hidden," could be an appropriate name.
     
    I think I'd exchange Briar Rose for something non-botanical, but with similar implications. What do you think of Barbed Wire?
     
    Translating the Blonde Fury to something close sounding, like Red Rage, might come across as a bit too precious. But from your description, I immediately thought of Femme Fatale.
     
    "Scarborough Faire" is a stylish name. For that I would want to look at an archaic noun with similar implications of entertainment. I would suggest Jongleur.

    I've suggested before that a marksman-type could use a slingshot, the weapon of mischievous little boys everywhere.  Give him various less-than-lethal loads--pepper balls, hard rubber balls, paint for marking a target, flashbangs, etc.--and you're all set.  There's even the perfect name for such a character--The Menace.

    How should the American taxpayer recoup Trump's expensive presidency?
    Make his eviction pay-per-view.
     
    At one of his rallies Trump had the crowd chanting 12 more years!
    Personally I'm hoping for 12 to 20 with time off for good behavior.
     
    Why is Donald Trump moving to Egypt?
    To live in a state of de Nile.

    Trump may end up being only a one term president.
    But it sure seemed like eight years.

    It's 2021, and President Joe Biden is told he needs to assemble a cabinet
    Coming back from IKEA, he realizes he's greatly misunderstood the task.
     
    As a gamer I find it strange that Biden was declared the winner...
    Trump had way more kills.
     
    Why did Trump visit Sesame Street?
    He wanted to stop The Count.

    Some political humor, sorry it isn't more bi-partisan but those are the breaks:
     
    Congratulations to Donald J. Trump for winning
    the silver medal in the 2020 U.S. Presidential race!
     
    Hopefully, Biden will never be the leader of my country
    Because if he is, something‘s gone wrong with the Canadian legal system.
     
    I think there should be a vote recount.
    It’ll be awesome to see Trump lose twice.
     
    Joe Biden is not my president!!
    At least not till January, which won’t come soon enough.
     
    Donald Trump has now had the true 2020 experience...
    He got Covid-19, lost his job, and he's being evicted.
     
    Why is Donald Trump actually angry about the election outcome?
    It's a loss he can't write off on his tax returns.
     
    It's Trump's own fault that he lost...
    He spent 4 years saying, "Make America Great Again", so this week 74 million people finally did.

    Nonsense. The minimum wage is higher in nearly every other First World country and their economies aren't collapsing. Some jobs get replaced...others are created. It's not rocket science. This is fear mongering by a Capitalist America that doesn't want to give up one penny of profit or invest in the American people.
