Superhero & Comic Team Names

Hero and comic team names are perfect for your team of real-life superheroes. But is your team is somewhat less than super?

Then try adding shitty before the name (or but shitty after it). I know it’s juvenile, but it cracks me up every time.

Here, I’ll show you.

The Avengers

The Shitty Avengers

The X-Men

The X-Men, but Shitty

The New Mutants

The New Mutants, but Bad… you get the idea at this point.

The League of Evil Mutants

League of Extraordinary Gentleman

Or “The League of Pretty Ordinary Gentlemen”

You can also do Uncanny Ex-Boyfriends if it’s more appropriate, or just The Uncanny Exes, Man.

Thirty-teen is a totally normal and not a made-up way to describe being in your forties.

The Multi-Spideys

We are all Spider-Man somewhere in the multiverse.

This is the perfect comic book team name for those that have their PhD in weird.

TV Show Team Names

Maybe the only thing your team has in common is a tv show. But great friendships have been forged on much less.

The 99

And the fun part is whenever the MC reads your TV team name, you all get to shout 99!

For this TV show name, you could also go with The Altos if you’re feeling cheeky.

Freaks and Geeks

Monty Python’s Flying Circus

I think this TV show team name is funnier if you replace Monty Python with the name of your boss or team lead. I think it’s funnier still to use their first name, then replace Python with a different kind of snake. Davey Cobra’s Flying Circus.

The Others

The Walking Dead

Or The Working Dead.

Kids in the Hall

The Springfield Nuclear Plant Softball Team

Vandelay Industries
