I was listening to my mp3 player on shuffle, and the band Vixen came up, which made me think of the DC heroine for some reason, which got me wondering, who are some metal or hard rock acts who share their names with superheroes (or supervillains for that matter)? Here's what i came up with:
Vixen
Raven
Thor
Venom
Demon
Hawk
any more you can think of?

I've been out of the comic book loop for 20+ years now, but I came up with these off the top of my head....

Ravage (good band, terrible comic from Marvel's "2099" line)

Wild Dog(s) - the comic character was singular, the band name is plural...

Punisher - there have been at least a half dozen bands with this name according to Metal Archives.

Vigilante - ditto, although I was thinking of the one with James (Helstar) Rivera in it.

I believe there's also a minor character in the X-Men universe named Overkill.

I too haven't read comics in years but one that came to mind is Onslaught, a major villain who "killed" the Avengers and Fantastic Four.

No wonder I never liked them. Just look at this ass-clown they named themselves after.
