    Corny Superhero name?

    Discussion in 'Character Development' started by CaptainCool, Oct 21, 2015.

    Okay so I am writing a story for school about a super hero whose power is basically being a human meteor. (It's more complex than that but I don't feel like explaining)
    Anyway, I am having trouble coming up with an appropriate name that I like. The setting is a futuristic city called Caldera (the city is located in a big crater). So far my ideas are Captain Caldera, Captain Crater, Crater-Man, The Meteor, or The Human Meteor. I don't really like any of these, do you? Do you Have a better idea?

    Meteor Man is already a super hero and that's just lame.

    Why not look up some stuff about meteor's? Maybe a certain word will give you some inspiration.

    Captain Comet. Agent Asteroid. The Space Man. I dunno. I quite liked your suggestion of Captain Crater.

    Shooting Star would seem the most - roll off the tongue - obvious and 'Hollywood' to me. Asteroid Man and the like sound shit but if I'm being frank, so does the whole premise.

    A meteor is the flash of light that we see in the night sky when a small chunk of interplanetary debris burns up as it passes through our atmosphere. (from hubblesite.org)

    so...is he a flash of light? Or a life-sized flashlight? (Not poking fun, just trying to understand...)

    Your user name, Captain Cool, works just fine for the name.

    If it was something else - I'd say caped crusader if it wasn't already taken.

    I personally liked Captain Random that this little site spat out

    http://superhero.namegeneratorfun.com/


    Or try looking up meteor / comet in another language. I named one of my characters like this - just changed the meaning by removing a vowel at the end of the word so it was easier to pronounce.
