* There seems to be no relation between Cain Marko (aka [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} The Juggernaut]]) and Flint Marko (aka [[SpiderMan The Sandman]]), apart from the fact that both have fought SpiderMan and were co-created by StanLee. Flint Marko's name has since been retconned.

* Before Marvel created DoctorDoom as the ArchEnemy of the ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'', there was a Franchise/{{Batman}} villain by that name. He only lasted one issue before being KilledOffForReal.

* Victor Zsasz is the name of a serial killer that ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' deals with occasionally. Charles Victor Szazs is the real name of Vic Sage, TheQuestion. Not quite the same thing, but very close. (Both were [[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous named after]] the psychologist Thomas S. Szasz.)

* There are two popular comic strip characters known as ''Dennis the Menace'': [[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUS the American one]] created by Hank Ketcham, and [[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUK the UK one]] featured in the anthology comic ''TheBeano''. Both are young grade-school boys who own dogs and get into mischief, but they're otherwise quite different. To make the coincidence even more astounding, the characters first appeared (in different publications, on opposite sides of the Atlantic) ''within three days of each other'' in March 1951.

* 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 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.

* {{Nightwing}} used to be Robin, but ''Nite-''wing is a mentally ill man who got his name from a sign advertizing chicken wings all "nite". The latter was a supporting character in the former's series.

*** [[OverlyLongGag Aaannd]] we have the name Marvel Boy which has been used by a member of the 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 YoungAvengers. Marvel Boys have nothing to do with Captain Marvels, though. Neither does [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Jean Grey]] who once went by the name Marvel Girl.

** Similarly, before the Jubilee we know debuted, there was an unrelated one-shot character with the same name and power (and introduced herself with a similar line.) Evidently, it was a "wanted to reuse that character, but it wouldn't work with the way the older story ended" case.
