Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A quick-n-dirty way to make a superhero/supervillain name: call them "(Something)man". Alternatively, "(Something) Man" or "(Something)-Man". "Woman" or "girl" (or, very occasionally, "lass") can be substituted for "man", especially where a Distaff Counterpart of the "man" is needed; "boy", "lad" or "kid" can also replace "man". For variety, there are also a large number of "Captain (Something)"s, though those names are often sarcastic.
Common themes include using animals, weapons, items or elements. Expect a lot of Theme Naming if the heroes are in a team.
The Legion of Super-Heroes even justified this trope by noting how difficult it can be to give everyone in its ranks a unique codename. Summed it neatly as "Adjective-Gender".
In contrast is the Dark Age practice of giving heroes and villains gritty one-word names.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Compare Captain Superhero (perhaps the second most common superhero naming trope), Luke Nounverber (this trope's counterpart in Speculative Fiction), The Adjectival Superhero, Mister Descriptor, The Adjectival Man, Species Surname, TV Tropes Superhero Team (a Just for Fun page imagining any trope with a "something person" form was a superhero). Often, an Animal-Themed Superbeing might use this sort of naming scheme.

An occasional bit on Whose Line Is It Anyway?, called "Superheroes," has the performers coming up with ludicrous superhero identities for each other, which then have to be played out. For instance: "Touchy-Feely Man," "Boneless Boy," "Says Everything Twice Man," "The Rhyming Couplet Kid," and "Ripped Off In The Divorce Settlement Man."
Also, during the episode featuring guest star Robin Williams, the "Scenes From a Hat" game had the players making up unlikely superheroes, such as Colin Mochrie's "Run Away From Danger Man."

Darkwing Duck, an affectionate parody of the genre, used this in the in-world style; note Darkwing Duck, as well as GizmoDuck, a somewhat more respected crime fighter, and NegaDuck, his Evil Twin. And then there's the aliens from Mertz, all of whom are superheroes. The only named natives were Comet Guy, Official Guy, and Ordinary Guy (the only one on the planet without superpowers).

Superman, the original.
Superboy
Supergirl
A "Superwoman" occasionally shows up, mostly so Time Warner can secure the trademark.
Superbaby. Seriously.
While not people, The Super-person pattern continued beyond the human race into The Legion of Super-pets:
Krypto the Superdog
Streaky the Supercat
Beppo the Supermonkey
Comet the Superhorse (Who, unlike the others, was not a Kryptonian animal brought to Earth but a centuar magically transformed into a horse with super powers.)
And finally, Superturtle, who was not technically a member of the Legion of Super-pets but was a one-page backup feature in a number of comics and is part of the Superman Family.

There is a Power Girl in DC and a Power Man (although he usually just goes by Luke Cage) in Marvel. There was even a What The...!? one-panel gag about "What if Wonder Man was a woman and Power Man was a girl...?"
Marvel also has two other Power Men (one an obscure character from The Silver Age of Comic Books, the other a Legacy Character to Luke).
Cage suggested to his wife Jessica Jones that she go by "Power Woman" in a conversation that was an obvious play on The Maiden Name Debate.

The Tin Man from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz kinda sorta qualifies, maybe. Except he's not a superhero. (Except in that one scene in the book where he single-handedly decapitates an entire onrushing pack of wolves.) Moreover, in the actual book, he's really known as "The Tin Woodman"note Since he was a woodcutter when he was still human (or munchkin; it's not clear)..

This is particularly hilarious, as Captain Marvel was the name of one of DC Comics's flagship heroes long before Marvel made it big. Marvel managed to secure the rights to the name and the DC comic is now sold under the name "Shazam"...but the character is still called Captain Marvel. (Whereas in Marvel's universe there are about four Captain Marvels.)

They play with the trope in other ways, such as how there are both Wonder Woman and Wonder Man analogues, both of whom are wombats and call themselves Wonder Wombat. Canon has it that there were many lawsuits before they decided no one was likely to confuse them for each other all that often.

Defied in the Red Panda Adventures. Kit Baxter was perfectly fine with the idea of being "Panda Girl", but the Red Panda himself didn't want Kit's hero identity to simply be an extension of his own. She ultimately avoided this trope and became known as the Flying Squirrel instead.

The Metal Men, with individual elements as members; Gold, Iron, Tin, Lead, Mercury, and token female Platinum (although these days, she's joined by Copper).
The Breeders song "Metal Man", the lyrics an odd hybrid of Super Hero Origin and Alien Abduction. Unusually subdued for the Deal sisters, though before it's over they shoehorn an Epic Riff in the mélange.

Elongated Man, although lacking a Secret Identity, he was often just called Ralph.
Who was created as a copyright workaround for the hero DC really wanted to use, Plastic Man. Interestingly, DC had recently acquired Plastic Man, but Elongated Man's creator didn't know it.

Stephen Lynch's "If I Could Be a Superhero". Not just the song (which has Awesome Man, Immigration Dude, and Justice Guy), but the point during a live performance when Lynch calls out for audience suggestions. They're mostly NSFW... except for Homeless Man and Narcolepsy Boy. Lynch takes the examples and flies with them, taking a moment to describe what each sort of superhero would do.

The Legion of Super-Heroes, amongst its approximately 100 members, mostly all have names of this makeup. In most incarnations of the Legion, you could count the exceptions to this naming scheme on the fingers of one hand. The most popular suffixes are "-Boy", "-Lad", "-King", "-Girl", "-Lass", "-Queen", "and "-Kid". Some notable examples are Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad, Bouncing Boy, Invisible Kid, Chemical King, Insect Queen, Shadow Lass and, of course, Matter Eater Lad...
Wizard magazine once parodied this practice with a Top 10 list of rejected Legion characters, including "Lad Lass" and "Keep-Squeezing-Them-Monkeys Lad".
...of course, they were about 30 years late to the party; the Legion of Substitute Heroes existed back in The Silver Age of Comic Books, with characters like Stone Boy, who had the ability to turn into an immobile statue; Color Kid, who could change the color of thingsnote though, if the Green Lantern Corps got their hands on him, he'd be indispensable; and... Arm-Fall-Off Boy.
Don't forget the Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man.
Phil Foglio, in Dragon Magazine's What's New? with Phil and Dixie feature, suggested a transforming superhero named Gazebo Boy (who proved completely vulnerable to The Mighty Termite).

Most common way of naming characters in Soreike! Anpanman, even when they're not superheroes, usually based on some kind of food. Frequent recurrers are the titular Anpanman, Shokupanman, Kareepanman, Baikinman ("baikin" means "germ", so... yeah), Horrorman (a really cute living skeleton), Tendonman and Katsudonman from Donburiman Trio, Hamigakiman (a toothpaste tube), Naganegiman... well, you got it. Women usually have their names end -na instead of man (Melonpanna and Rollpanna) or have another kind of feminine suffix such as -chan or -hime. Recent characters tend to have different kind of names, maybe because it becomes hard to follow the same pattern over time.

Spider-Girl, his Alternate Continuity daughter.
WCW's infamous Spider-Man knockoff, Arachniman.
Spider-Man, according to industry legend, went from 'Insect-Man' to 'Mosquito-Man' to 'Spider-Man'. Spider-Man was just the version that stuck.
"Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig, does whatever a Spider-Pig does."
Not to mention Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham, the Spider-Man analog from a world of Funny Animals.

All of the Robot Masters of the classic Mega Man and most of the Navis in the Mega Man Battle Network series have their names with the suffix "-Man".
...Except Mega Man 9. Which stirs things up by adding Token Female Splashwo Man.
Even if certain Navis in Battle Network did not have "-Man" attatched to their names, all of their names will still end with .EXE, as they are (very personal) computer programs. However, from the third game onwards, most Navis dropped the .EXE extension when referring to other Navis by name.
In the fancomic Bob and George, Bob ran straight into this trope when he tried to name his own robot master. He tried to name it "Death" (not Death Man, just Death). Hilarity Ensued.
