    After two nights of this in a row, I felt this needed to be done. We all know some of the biggest names in comics; Clark Kent, Peter Parker, Steve Rogers, etc. But, what about the little known people who SHARE these names? That's right, somewhere out there is a Reed Richards or Bruce Wayne living an every day normal life like everyone else. So, the object of this thread is what comic real names have you actually seen or heard as being a living person's real name?

    To reference the two instances I mentioned before, tonight on the Daily Show they had an author named Clark Kent Ervin. Last night, they had an upstate NY politician named Marc Spector.

    What've you got?

    Wizard had an article a while back where they actually called up a Bruce Wayne, who was in med school somewhere, and they were messing with him asking him questions as if he really was Batman, and the guy got the joke and played along.

    They did that a bunch of times. For example, they onece called up a Clark Kent who actually lives in Kansas. He got really upset when he figured them out.

    Or, when they called a Wally West, who never caught on because he probably didn't know that's the Flash's name.

    That doesn't count. I know a bunch of photographers with money problems, but none of them are named Peter Parker. :p

    If my last name was Jordan, and I had a son, I'd name him Michael Harold Jordan. Hal may be a badass Gl and the sucker punch king, but he'll always be second best to MJ in my mind.
