My name is Tatiana, but my friends and family call me Tutta. I love writing articles that bring a little creativity to everyday life.

Have you ever wanted to be a superhero? Well, now you can! All you need is a cool name, a coordinating costume, and a fearless alter ego, and there you are!

Being a superhero isn’t all about fame and the cool looks, of course. It’s also the ability and desire to rescue people and be there at a moment’s notice. It’s also a good idea not to reveal your true identity because this would take away from the mystery and suspense of it all.

Picking a Good Superhero Name

Ready to start the transformation? Grab your cape, and let’s fly on into the storm (brainstorm, that is)! Having the perfect superhero name is crucial to the very existence of the alternate person you’ll become. I mean, you have to think, you’re going to be making news headlines and stuff, so you can’t go with a lame name!

Now, if you’re going to be a superhero, there are a few things that you should know while you’re blasting through superhero names:

  • Sounds cool: The entire notion of superheroes have a reputation to hold up, and part of that is to have a really cool-sounding name! It needs to have a nice flow and look good in print. Alliterations (repetitions in letter sounds) sound good. Powerful words sound good, like the use of “super.” There are tons of ways to sound cool.
  • Adds mystique: Your name, while being really cool-sounding, also needs to contribute to your mysterious persona. There are always those moments when the superhero flies in to save the day, then vanishes once the hard work is done. Then people learn the name and become awe-stricken and curious.
  • Your look: If you’ve already established a costume or costume concept, then you’ll want to choose a name that goes with it, of course. If you have yet to think about the superhero getup, then start thinking about names that also give you ideas for your wardrobe.
  • Skillset: Every superhero has special abilities, and your superhero name should reflect your super abilities! Make a list of abilities you’d like to have, and try to come up with some names that coincide with them.

With all of these things considered, it’s time to start thinking of names! To give you some inspiration, here are a bunch of superhero names to suit your needs (and alter ego!).

Deciding on Your Superhero Name

You probably have short-listed a few of the names we listed, and maybe even thought of a few on your own. Now that you've got some ideas, it's time to narrow down your names. Review your list and ask yourself the following questions about each name:

  1. Does the name sound good when said aloud? Does it have a nice flow?
  2. Does it contribute to the persona I’m trying to achieve?

If you still aren't sure, you can also keep thinking up cool names until you find the perfect superhero name.

One fun way of coming up with superhero names is to generate them at random and then picking your colors, attire, skills, and so on. There are many ways to do this, but you can totally come up with your own. An example would be the color of your shirt and the first thing you see in the sky. Lots of possibilities!

"Crash Course!"

Another villain.

"Crash Course!", or "Crash" as he is called, possesses greatly enhanced physical strength and the ability to create miniature, localized natural disasters simply from moving his body. Stamping his feet will cause small, powerful tremors whereas blowing out air as forcefully as possible would cause powerful winds to blast whatever is currently in front of him.

His surroundings will impact how his power manifests as well; should he be in a city, one would expect lots of collateral damage in the form of small-scale "earthquakes", whereas if he were out at sea, he could accidentally capsize ships by conjuring forth monstrous waves or heavy storms. Other incarnations of this power include wildfires, sinkholes, duststorms, geysers forming from below and possibly even infestations of pests, such as mice or weevils.

bits & bobs on July 19, 2020:

"The Royal We"

A Villain this time.

A telepath (and a powerful one at that) who can read minds, implant suggestions into the minds of others, erase specific memories and even fabricate false information within the minds of those around them. While they cannot technically take command of another being's mind, they can do something far more horrifying -The Royal We is capable of completely destroying the ego of an individual and inserting a copy of their own into whoever was unfortunate enough to be selected. This person gains all of The Royal We's abilities, as well as the ability to create additional (mental) copies of themselves in other people. It is important to note that The Royal We is not a hivemind, but a group of individuals who are identical up to a certain point, after which they are all their own, separate entity. While they will typically work together, they will also sometimes work against one another, seeking to secure a position of power and relative safety above the other Royal clones.

Nice names

bits & bobs on July 18, 2020:

"Boiling Point"

Her power is the deceptively dangerous one of boiling water. Simply put, she can cause nearby water to almost instantly reach temperatures as high as 406°F, almost assuredly causing the water to (violently) explode into a superheated haze of steam. She can only target "water", or rather what she believes to be water, such as rain, tap water, bottled water, ocean water and possibly even sewage if can feasibly be identified as "contaminated water". The range of this ability is ultimately quite short, however the almost universal presence of water, as well as the possibility of carrying some on her person, allows it to be far more lethal and effective than most would assume.

bits & bobs on July 17, 2020:

"Underdog"

His power is a simple one - as his current predicament grows more desperate and dangerous, his strength, speed and mental processing powers will increase by an amount relative to the danger. Should he be in a fight with a pair of muggers, his physical power and agility would be on par with that of three adult men, whereas if he were surrounded by seven, he might be able to match nine or ten times stronger and faster than your average human being. Furthermore, his mental faculties will improve, sharpening his senses, reaction times and what his brain focuses on and ignores. Should he be held at gunpoint, he would be able to quickly (though roughly) work out the bullet's trajectory based on the kind of gun and the angle it is being held at.

Because his power's trigger is being in danger, he will only be slightly above the baseline levels of a physically fit human male under typical circumstances, though he also has no truly discernible upper limit. Should he fight a hostile "Super", or even multiple, his power could potentially boost his physical parameters to Superman-esque levels of absurdity.

bits & bobs on July 16, 2020:

"Composite"

She'll have the ability to forcibly cause objects to occupy the same physical space, fusing them into a theoretically physically impossible entity in the process, as they objects' fused form will adopt specific traits from its base components of her choice.

For example, should she fuse water and a source of fire, she would most likely end up with water that gives off light equivalent to that of a campfire, water that stays in its liquid form despite having the temperature of an open campfire or both. Should she fuse a sheet of paper with a lump of iron, she could end up with a sheet of paper that retains its weight and general flexibility while adopting the raw strength of the metal.

Other names she could use would be "Fusion", "Mixer" or something along the lines of "Tinker"
