So I know comics are meant to be for fun and all, but some of the characters names and powers, personalities I’ve seen over the years are truly a great laugh.

Case in point Man Thing. What was Marvel thinking when they titled this character’s name? I think it’s funny personally, but you have to realize the connotations it brings.

Here are some other oddball characters and or names, I remembered over the years.

1. Matter Eater Lad

A DC hero from 1962, from a planet where people had gained the ability to eat, digest and metabolize matter in any form. Cool power actually , just a retarded name.

nothing weird  to see here just Matter Eating Lad

2. Rawhide kid a gay cowboy basically.

He says toodles and rather give a villain a makeover than beat his ass.

Rawhide Kid gives fashion tips rather than fights

3.Codpiece ,from Doom Patrol #70 has a crotch cannon, think From Dusk Til Dawn .

This is a stick up!
This is a stick up!

While funny overall, what the hell were they drinking when they created him

4. Modok short for Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing) It’s not the name I have such an issue with its just the way Modok looks

5. Paste Pot Pete ok he has a giant purple beret and bow tie and fights people with Project Lubricant ? Maybe he should fight Rawhide kid!

so what's your lubricant made of?? HMMM

6. Apache Indian :Super Friends cartoon, Great Ceasars ghost that’s just lazy and retarded. His power he grows.

Me Apache  Indian Grow Big !

There are many more that people have compiled into lists also , but these are my favorites.

Got any personal favorites ? Or honorable mentions?

I know there are many more, but though this was a good start!
