    I read that Iron Man is a common phrase meaning a man of great strength and toughness and the iron suit justifies it.

    “I don’t think they put much thought into it” is a pretty casual dismissal of someone’s work, y’know. ‘S like someone saying you don’t put any thought into your own characters.

    The authors of those comics can be pretty passionate.

    Ah, well... I choose all my character names on a whim myself... >.>

    Like, sure, I do put thought on the plot, interactions and whatnot... But names? Names are kind of a whatever to me.

    I think that when choosing superhero names, the authors just try going for something cool and easy to remember...

    Well, I guess that nowadays due to how big the companies making comics are, they probably spend more time deciding the name of a new hero, but uhn... Well, I just don't expect names in general to get that much thought behind it.

    Rather than dismissing their hard work, I just don't think the choice of a character's name is something super important for a narrative...

    He choose personal names like Peter Parker, Reed Richards, J. Jonah Jameson, Bruce Banner etc. because it sounded fun and was memorable. I don't remember seeing him talk on their hero names though.

    The expression shown doesn't match with the thought bubble.

    Also, this is nonsense. Rape can definitely be horrible for the raped party regardless of their gender.
