* The Silver Sorceress, a Creator/DCComics character introduced in 1971 as a deliberate CaptainErsatz of Marvel's ComicBook/ScarletWitch, wore a costume that of course... consisted entirely of gold, brown, and red shades. When she became part of the [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]] over a decade later, she did have silver ''hair'' at least, though it was completely covered by her elaborate headgear and a {{Retcon}} in any event -- in her first appearance, she was depicted with brown hair.

* While ComicBook/IronMan's prototype suit was originally iron, the material of other versions has varied confused.
depending on continuity. In most of the comics, the suits have had iron in some form in the outer shell, usually enhanced in some way with [[DeflectorShield forcefields]]. In some continuities, it's explained that Tony was inspired by the Black Sabbath song, though ironically the lyrics describe a FallenHero (and the comics hero himself predated the song by seven years).

The reason for his odd name is that at the time, "human torches" (performers who lit themselves on fire) were a well-known circus act.

* MarvelComics' "Night Nurse" secretly treats wounded superheroes. As [[http://www.comicpow.com/2013/09/06/the-night-nurse-doctor-to-superheroes/ she reveals to us]] in ''ComicBook/DoctorStrange: The Oath'', she's actually a doctor, but "Night General Practitioner" isn't as catchy.

* MarvelComics' Hulkling has nothing to do with the Hulk, except that his combat form is also big and green. He's actually [[NonhumanHumanoidHybrid half-Kree and half-Skrull]] in fact, his father was the original [[ComicBook/CaptainMarVell Captain Marvel]].

* The ''Toys/{{Uglydolls}}'' comic "So, You Want to be A Ninja", has Ninja Batty Shogun training Wedgehead in the art of ninjitsu, part of which involves giving different and wildly incorrect names to things that already exist. Ninja Fries and Ninja Ketchup are actually onion rings and sweet chili sauce, while Ninja Tacos are microwave burritos. Do not question your sensei!
