    Cheesiest superhero names and gimmicks

    Discussion in 'Character Development' started by Auger, Jun 18, 2016.

    What's the cheesiest superhero names/gimmicks you can think of? Alliteration would be preferred.

    For reference :
    Cardboard Crusader
    Street Sweeper
    Bathrobe Bushido

    Context :
    A group of working class nerds become thematic bounty hunters and mercs.

    Careful. Could lapse into Mystery Men territory.

    Lots of things seem similar when simplified to a one-sentence summary.

    Ooh, this is easy. It's so much easier to bad ones than good ones.
    The best suggestion I have off the top of my head is something I came up with years ago; flying squirrel. (Facepalms) Should be suitably embarrassing.

    Quantum Man.

    A confused, wishy-washy little bald man who never keeps his appointments, is never where he says he is, and rarely is of any use.

    Captain Box-head-man

    By day, an absent minded, normal, average, Marine. But, from the hours of 6:00 to 8:00, or whenever the kid's baths are done, his shirt becomes a cape and he dons an empty box atop his face, becoming Captain Box, with the power of endless stories and anti-monster lasers!

    It's uncanny how similar Captain Box-head-man is to my Cardboard Crusader character. Marine, check. Box, check. Lasers, check.
