Default The Official Best and Worse Names of Marvel Comics Thread

Lets see your opinions. What are some of the best names of all characters, heroes, and villains, in marvel comics? Some of the worst?

Off the top of my head

Best: Annihilus, Venom, Galactus, The Sentry, Hulk, Nova, Thanos, Magneto, Deadpool, Ultron, Living Tribunal

Worst: Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, She-Hulk, Living Lightning, Professor X, Squirrel Girl, Blob, and of course, Ugly John

So lets hear yours!

I'm curious as to what criteria you're using that makes these names bad or good to you. Or is it simply by sound to you?

I'm sorry but I still can't think of "Rulk" or "Red She-Hulk" without shaking my head. That's really the best that they could come up with?!

As for best... I've always been a fan of Onslaught for the sake that it really fit the character and the storyline. It was dead on and perfect.

All of it, but mostly, just how it sounds, so opinions

Like to me, Annihilus sounds like a cool name, as does Galactus, And The Sentry, Ugly John Sounds lame, so does she-Hulk to me, that type of thing

Worst: The codename Marvel Girl always annoyed me.
Best: Nightcrawler (appropriately creepy name for creepy looking guy) and Galactus

A large black man named Black Goliath is cringe-worthy.

Oh man! I'm seriously disappointed. I thought this thread was to talk about the worst Thread names in the Marvel forums. Like, almost anything with "official" in its title. After all, just because you say it's official doesn't make it so.

This is the "Official disappointed in a thread's content after opening it up" post!

its kind of funny. Names like Spider-man, Batman, Superman, Doctor Doom are all classic but you cannot make names like that anymore without people thinking they are lame. do people even call Dr. Doom that anymore or is he usually referred to as Doom or Victor?

Off the top of my head.

Best: Venom, Thor, Loki, Ultron, Wolverine, Gambit, Magneto, Hawkeye, Bullseye, Deadpool.

Worst: There are a lot...Namor, The Fantastic Four(the group name and each member other than Thing), Captain Marvel, + the obvious ones.

I'm not a fan of the Marvel names for Marvel characters. Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Marvel Girl, Marvel Boy, Mar-Vell...

Atlas is a really cool name
Galactus and magneto are really corny names, even though they fit
