* In Creator/DCComics ''Inferior Five'', the Five's parents are a parody JusticeLeagueOfAmerica, While we don't get their full names, the surnames of some of their kids suggest they're suitably parodic. Mr Might ({{Superman}}) has the Earth surname Brent, and the original name Barb-Ell, son of Dumb-Ell of the planet Neon. Power Princess (WonderWoman) married a man named Tremor (for Steve Trevor), and Bowman (ComicBook/GreenArrow) has the surname King (instead of Queen). The exceptions are TheFlash parody Captain Swift, who is called Cramer, not a play on Allen or Garrick, and the Uncle Sam parody Patriot, who has the surname Victor.
