Wait, I Get It Now. Mister E. “Mystery.” Oh, Those Madcap Writers of Yore.

38 Band Name Suggestions Culled From Old DC Comics 

So I did a thing a while ago in which I listed several bands that found inspiration in the comics and comic strips when they went looking for a good name. And then I thought, “Hey, what if I could help an up-and-coming band find its own cool, derived-from-comics name to boost its geek cred among today’s pop-culture-savvy generation of post-modern hipsters?” So here we are.
