Name suggestions?

Post by Asenath on Thu Jul 05, 2012 9:15 am

(apologize if this is in the wrong forum)
I'm writing a Spiderman fanfic right now... and I'll need a name for my OC before long. Her real name's Lydia Evans and she's superpowered. Her power is the ability to dissolve things and poison people with her hands, gained by a freak combination of a genetic mutation she had from birth and contact with a cleaner containing some powerful chemicals. She's able to control it, but only if she keeps her emotions under control. Anger, fear, grief, and pretty much any other strong emotion will make her hands and her arms up to her elbows secrete a strong chemical that will dissolve anything it touches. If she limits her emotions carefully, she can also temporarily disable a person by poisoning them.
I need a good name for her superhero alter ego... any ideas? I can probably think of one on my own, just wondered if any of you people had an idea.
EDIT: Thought of a few names... do you think Salamandress reads more like 'salamander woman' or like 'salamander dress?' And what do you think of Dartfrog, or Poisonarrow?

Awesome, I'm a big Spider-Man fan, I'll be sure to check out your fic! Where will you post it?

As for a name... those are some unusual powers - ones that are usually used by villains, so it's obviously harder to come up with something heroic relating to them, in true Spider-Man style. How about:

-Acidian
-Acid Rain
-Toxic Touch

I'm afraid those are the only ones I could come up with!

Thanks, Olivus! And yay, another fan! I'm posting it on FF.net, under my alias there (Birchtail). I've already got four chapters up. I thought it would be interesting to write a fic about it for that very reason-she'd have to learn to control and properly use a power that is, well, for the lack of a better word, villain-ish -and it would be really, really difficult having a secret identity.

Brilliant, I'll take a read through that.

All of the reasons why you wrote the fic show what an interesting character you've made! Like you say, she has to learn to control her powers... but controlling them is so much harder for her, in that she must also control her emotions, which aren't easy to control at all. Whenever she feels low or angry (emotions that must be pretty common in her position), her mutation means that she'll only be reminded of the abnormal life she now has to lead. You've made a hero quite unlike many of the other ones out there!

Thanks. Smile Tell me what you think whenever you get to reading it!
She (fortunately) doesn't have serious emotional issues to start with, so that wouldn't be such a problem... except, as you said, her emotions would be common now that her mutation is 'activated', so to speak. She also has to deal with fear-mostly fear that she'll hurt somebody, which will backfire on her. I also wanted to play with the idea of her, in the eyes of others, having a phobia of being touched. She kind of would, since she'd be afraid of hurting or killing whoever touched her.
Ah, my fingers are itching to type another chapter!
