** Clark Kent/Superman. For that matter, Superman's entourage of people with the initials "LL"; Comicbook/LoisLane, ComicBook/LexLuthor, Lucy Lane, ComicBook/LanaLang, Lara Lor-Van, Lori Lemaris, Linda "Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}" Lee, Lyla Lerrol, Letitia Lerner, etc. The first two were coincidence; after that, the writers picked up the theme and ran with it. Also note that Kal-El read backwards also has two L's.

** The novelization of ''Film/SpiderMan1'' [[LampshadeHanging hung a lampshade]] on this, by having Jameson name the Green Goblin in a headline. This resulted in a brief discussion on alliteration between J. Jonah Jameson, Peter Parker, the Bugle's editor Robbie Robertson, and Jameson's secretary Betty Brant... none of whom seemed to notice they were examples. The same point is made out in ''Spider-Man 3''.

* Similarly, ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' once had a series of alliterative romantic interests, including Vicki Vale (played by Kim Basinger in ''Film/{{Batman}}'') and Silver St. Cloud.

While Batman's own name doesn't directly count, one of his common monikers, "the Caped Crusader", is also alliterative.

--->'''Supergirl:''' While you were gone, I used my super-hearing and heard many Earth-girls' names! I thought of a good one for myself... Linda Lee! How's that?\\
'''Superman:''' Er... As good as any! (thinking) Lana Lang was my girlfriend when I was Superboy, and Lois Lane replaced her when I became Superman! By sheer coincidence, she picked the same initials... L. L.!
** In ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'', Superman arrested a mob boss called Samuel Simeon.
** Talking about Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}, one of her best friends back in the Silver Age was Lena Luthor.



*** Lex's mother name was Lillian and in a dream universe his daughter with Lana Lang was named Lily, and his hallucination on a desert island that was obviously himself was called Louis Leery.
*** Subverted by Lex's actual given name: Alexander Joseph Luthor.

** Peter Parker/''Franchise/SpiderMan''. Among others, he had to deal with J. Jonah Jameson and Otto "[[Comicbook/DoctorOctopus Dr. Octopus]]" Octavius. Jonah himself has a son named John Jameson by his first wife, Joan, he later married Marla Madison, his editor-in-chief is Joe "Robbie" Robertson (who has a son named Randy), and secretaries have included Betty Brant (whose brother was called Bennett) and Glory Grant. The Bugle staff absolutely adores alliteration. In fact, JJJ is actually J. Jonah Jameson, ''Junior''. We have also Curt Connors, the Lizard, and Cletus Kasady, a.k.a. Carnage. This reached the height of absurdity with a splash page showing the characters attending a Bugle funeral. Of the ten characters named, ''nine'' had alliterative names, with only Aunt May not fitting in.
