The problem is that Fin Fang Foom sounds like a vaudeville spoof of an Asian name. I think his concept is kinda cool but he reeks of cheese. The purple pants don't help either; lightning doesn't strike twice in one spot says the Hulk!
I'm not an expert on Foom, but couldn't there be a way to side-step the name issue somehow? I mean many Marvel comic characters accumulate a few aliases over time, does he have any? Also they could just forgo naming him at all in the movie (I don't think it's the first time something like that would have happened either), they could just use certain descriptions of him or call him the Makluan etc.
