Top Five Characters Whose Real Names Are Way Too “On Point”

Top Five Month (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) continues with a look at characters whose real names are a bit TOO “on point” when it comes to their powers or future undertakings.

Here are the top five…



Julian Gregory Day

All of those names are way too normal to make the top five. I mean, if his last name was Calendar, then maybe, but Day is a pretty common last name.

Captain Nathaniel Adam

If it were ATOM, then yeah, he’d definitely make the list, but it’s Adam, so it’s JUST believable enough not to make the list.

Otto Octavius

Same thing with Doctor Octavius

5. Scott Free

It’s definitely up there, but Free isn’t really THAT crazy of a last name, is it?

4. Edward Nigma

Now, NIGMA is, so while Scott Free and E. Nigma are both very close, I give E. Nigma the slight edge.

3. Roy G. Bivolo

Roy G. Bivolo, however, just doesn’t make any sense.

So that’s unbelievably on pont.

2. Julio Richter

This guy is so far up the list because, unlike the people above, he wasn’t INSPIRED by his name. If he were, he would likely not even be on the list, as Richter is a common enough last name (Stanley Cup Champion Goalie Mike Richter, for one). However, he is a MUTANT. His abilities to make earthquakes was not known when he got his name, and yet his name is still RICHTER? That’s amazingly on point.

1. Victor Von Doom

One of the four best supervillains ever and his last name happens to be Von Doom?
