    WIRED picks The Worst Superhero Names

    Wired Magazine picks the worst superher names

    Captain Boomerang
    “Boomerang” is a silly word, and no military title can offset that. He could be Admiral Boomerang and he’d still just be a guy who throws curvy sticks at the Flash. I don’t know what makes a man choose to commit crimes with boomerangs, much less to imagine that a boomerang is going to be an effective weapon against someone who can run at the speed of light, but I imagine it involves low self-esteem and a whittling knife.
