*** [[OverlyLongGag Aaannd]] we have the name Marvel Boy which has been used by a member of the ComicBook/NewWarriors (who had an AlternateTimeline double to make things weirder), a teen Marvel superhero from the 50's, and a current Kree hero who is part of the ComicBook/YoungAvengers. Marvel Boys have nothing to do with Captain Marvels, though. Neither does [[ComicBook/XMen Jean Grey]] who once went by the name Marvel Girl.

* Years before Jean Grey of the Comicbook/XMen began calling herself "The Phoenix", Phoenix was actually the short-lived identity used by Helmut Zemo before he settled on becoming the new [[LegacyCharacter Baron Zemo]].

* When most comic fans hear the name Starfire, they think of [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe a hot alien babe with orange skin]], who wears a {{stripperiffic}} outfit and who is usually [[MostCommonSuperpower stacked enough]] to rival ComicBook/PowerGirl. The name also belonged to the Russian hero, Red Star at a time, a short-lived {{Supergirl}} villain and also a sword-wielding female warrior.

** There's also a Hal Jordan who appeared in a Golden Age Timely's ''Submariner Comics'' issue, ten years before his more famous namesake's debut. Curiously enough, he's also an aircraft pilot and [[http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Hal_Jordan_(Earth-616) looks similar to Green Lantern]].



* Deadeye. The name of an EvilCounterpart of ''ComicBook/GreenArrow'' from planet Qward in the Anti-Matter universe, who appeared in ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational''. And the name of the ''ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}'' CaptainErsatz of Earth-8 from ''ComicBook/TheMultiversity''.

** Morph from the 90's ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' animated series was supposed to be a modernized version of Changeling, since he technically was an X-Men member in the comics, even if it was only established through a {{retcon}}. He even had the same civilian identity of "Kevin Sidney", but the codename "Changeling" couldn't be used at the time since it now belonged to the DCComics character. Ironically, when the WesternAnimation/TeenTitans got their own animated series, Gar Logan went back to using his old Beast Boy handle.

* An aquatic superhero debuted in World War II. He was the last survivor of an underwater civilization (and royalty to boot), had superior strength, and fought the Axis. If you're thinking it's Namor, you're wrong. It's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Man_(Canadian_comics) Iron Man]].

** Now that we have the whole Captain Marvel/Photon/Marvel Boy/Quasar thing sorted out, let's turn to ComicBook/MsMarvel. Ms. Marvel was the DistaffCounterpart to ComicBook/CaptainMarVell. The name was also taken up by another woman who briefly joined the ComicBook/FantasticFour. During ComicBook/DarkReign, Moonstone, a member of the ThunderBolts, took the name Ms. Marvel as her identity in the ComicBook/DarkAvengers.
