* Clark Kent/''Franchise/{{Superman}}''. For that matter, Superman's entourage of people with the initials "LL"; Comicbook/LoisLane, SelfDemonstrating/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.
** There was a Superman story back in UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} that involved a threat against "someone close to Superman". There was a clue left in the form of two steel girders formed into a giant LL. Superman's reaction was along the lines of "Oh, great, ''that's'' real helpful."
** AlternateCompanyEquivalent Hank Henshaw/Cyborg Superman.
** The PostCrisis Superman continuity included a sort-of Superman lookalike named "Bibbo" Bibbowski, who was a longshoreman and former boxer. (Even though "Bibbo" is a a nickname based on his last name, he still counts because his actual first name is Bo).
** ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' continues the double-L theme: Lana Lang's parents are Lewis and Laura Lang, and Lex's dad is Lionel Luthor. ''Lionel's'' parents? Lachlan and E'''l'''iza. (Several of these were already obscure comics canon.)
*** 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.
*** Marvel's ''Age of the Sentry'' showed the Sentry's Silver Age adventures in more detail, and revealed that like Superman he seemed to encounter a lot of people with the same initials, but in his case they were "EE". Comicbook/TheSentry's real name is Robert Reynolds, part of the subversion they were going for with the character when they said that he was actually invented by Stan Lee and then forgotten about among a stack of old story notes. He goes by Bob though.
* 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.
* Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}} had a brother Wade Wilson, AKA the second Ravager. See SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} below.
* Billy Batson[=/=][[Comicbook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]], along with Freddy Freeman[=/=]Captain Marvel Jr. Likewise Mike Moran, Marvelman[=/=]''Comicbook/{{Miracleman}}'' and Dickie Dauntless, Young Marvel/Miracleman.
* J'onn J'onzz[=/=]''Comicbook/MartianManhunter'' and M'gann M'orzz[=/=]Miss Martian, his DistaffCounterpart from ''Comicbook/TeenTitans''. M'gann M'orzz is named after Megan Morse, a friend of Creator/GeoffJohns...but he probably chose it for its alliteration anyway.
* Creator/AlanMoore references this trope in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' by naming one of his heroes Daniel Dreiberg.
** There's also a minor side character, "Dr Manhattan's Buddy" Wally Weaver.
** ''ComicBook/BeforeWatchmen'' gives Ozymandias's full name as Adrian ''Alexander'' Veidt, which also doubles as something of a StevenUlyssesPerhero situation and a MeaningfulName.
* Doiby Dickles, sidekick to Alan Scott, the first, [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]], Franchise/GreenLantern. Opposing Scott were Steven Sharpe (The Gambler), Molly Mayne (Harlequin), and Crusher Crock (Sportsmaster).
* Guy Gardner, a later ''Franchise/GreenLantern''.
* [[Characters/GLRedLanternCorps Red Lantern]] member Zilius Zox
* Calvin "Cave" Carson, a [[IUsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] spelunker-adventurer.
* Max Mercury, a time-traveling speedster with ties to Franchise/TheFlash, who also used the name "Whip Whirlwind" in the 1890s.
* Sargent "Sarge" Steel, one of the Creator/CharltonComics heroes purchased by DC. ("Sargent" is his name, not a rank.) Originally a hard-boiled detective/spy-smasher type, he became a government official in charge of many of the DCU's superhero-related agencies.
* Tex Thompson, aka "Mr. America" and "Americommando", a spy-smashing superhero introduced in ''Action'' #1 along with Superman. He's been revised and {{retcon}}ned several times since then.
* Larry Lance, husband of Dinah Drake, UsefulNotes/{{The Golden Age|OfComicBooks}} Comicbook/BlackCanary.
* ComicBook/{{Zatanna}} Zatara; her father was simply John Zatara. Her cousin's name is Zachary Zatara.
* Ronald Raymond / Comicbook/{{Firestorm}}
* ''Comicbook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew''
** Rodney Rabbit straddles ''both'' of the major alliterative traditions.
** Peter Porkchops
* Wally West/''Franchise/TheFlash'' (originally Kid Flash).
* James Jesse/The Trickster
* Robbie Reed[=/=]''Comicbook/DialHForHERO''
* Buddy Baker, a.k.a. ''ComicBook/AnimalMan''.
* Cassandra Cain, the third ComicBook/{{Batgirl|2000}}.
* Katherine "Kate" Kane, the Pre- and Post-Crisis Comicbook/{{Batwoman}}.
* Gardner Grayle/Atomic Knight
* [[DoctorFate Hector Hall]]
* [[Comicbook/DoomPatrol Valentina Vostock]]
* Baron Blitzkrieg

* Louise Lincoln (Killer Frost)
* ''Comicbook/SecretSix'' supervillainess Scandal Savage

* The original characters in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse co-created by Creator/StanLee were often given alliterate names as a mnemonic device.
** 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.
** Based off this, there was a FunnyAnimal version, named Peter Porker, The Amazing Spider-Ham, who worked for J. Jonah Jackal.
** The novelization of ''Film/SpiderMan'' [[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''.
** As if to make his Expy-ness of Spider-Man more obvious, Hazmat of the Imperfects has the alter ego of ''Keith Kilham''.
** Scott Summers/ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} and Warren Worthington III/Angel of the ''Comicbook/XMen''.
** ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' members Susan Storm/The Invisible Woman (although she changed her name when she married) and Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic
** Matt Murdock/''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}''
** Stephen Strange/''Comicbook/DoctorStrange'', Master of the Mystic Arts (and sometime Sorcerer Supreme.) The various principalities and powers, and the effects they conjure, tend to be alliterative as well (e.g. the Blinding Brazier of Balthakk, the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth). Justified, since magic involves chants and spoken spells, and alliteration is a memory aid.
** Pepper Potts, Tony Stark's assistant and/or love interest from ''ComicBook/IronMan''. (Although her first name is actually Virginia, she is best known by her nickname.) Doubles as a PunnyName. She is the team coordinator for [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Order_(Initiative)_(Earth-616) The Order]], which had a distinct majority of this among its ranks. Henry Hellrung, Rebecca Ryan, Magdalena Marie (born Magdalena Marie ''Neuntauben'', though), Avery Allen, Pamela Pierce, and Carlos Carvaho were all members of the team at some point or another -- just under ''two thirds'' of its all-time roster.
** ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel'', as well as other "career girl" features that Creator/MarvelComics debuted around the same time: ''Nellie the Nurse'', ''Sherry the Showgirl'' and ''Tessie the Typist''.
** Bruce Banner/''Comicbook/IncredibleHulk''. (The alliteration didn't save Stan from calling him "Bob Banner" in an early story, thus enshrining in canon the full name of "Robert Bruce Banner".)
*** In [[Series/TheIncredibleHulk the TV series]], it was changed to David Banner (with Bruce as a middle name) because of directorial distaste for this trope. At least that's what Kenneth Johnson (the producer and writer of the bulk of the series) says. Stan Lee says that [[ExecutiveMeddling the producers]] thought the name "Bruce" sounded gay. See, back in the funky '70s the name Bruce was thought of as a "gay" name the United States.
** Greer Grant/''{{Tigra}}''
* In the popular Comicbook/UltimateMarvel line, [[Comicbook/UltimateSpiderman Peter Parker's]] successor as Spider-Man is tiny thirteen-year old Miles Morales.
* By [[NorseMythology sheer coincidence]], ComicBook/{{Loki}} Laufeyson.
* [[UnfortunateName Richard Rider]][=/=]''Comicbook/{{Nova}}''
* Brian Braddock[=/=]CaptainBritain and Betsy Braddock[=/=]Psylocke, siblings.
* Comicbook/JessicaJones, {{retcon}}ned into the Silver Age by ''Comicbook/{{Alias}}'' ([[SimilarlyNamedWorks the comic, not the TV show]]), who also operated under the codename Jewel. Jessica Jones was originally Jessica Campbell, until [[spoiler: her family died in a car accident and she was adopted by the Joneses.]]
* [[Characters/XMenVillains Shinobi Shaw]], son of Sebastian.
* Domenic Destine of ''Comicbook/ClanDestine''. Also his older sister Gracie Gamble, although that's just her current alias.
* In ''X-Men Noir'', Thomas Halloway learned lockpicking from a criminal by the name of Horrace Hobbs, the Harlem Houdini.
* [[ComicBook/{{Morbius}} Michael Morbius]], his temporary alias Morgan Michaels, as well as his father Makarioa Morbius.
* Wade Winston Wilson[=/=]''SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}'', originally copied from DC lookalike Deathstroke, aka Slade Wilson.
* Frederick Foswell
* Ralph Roberts/Cobalt Man
* Moses Magnum
* Comicbook/{{Silver Sabl|e}}inova
* [[Characters/SpiderManLoveInterests Carlie Cooper]]
* Dennis Dunphy/Demolition Man
* Blackagar Boltagon/Black Bolt of Comicbook/TheInhumans
* Heather Hudson/Vindicator of Comicbook/AlphaFlight
* Donna Diego/ [[Characters/{{Venom}} Scream]]

* [[Comicbook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan]]

* Slight variation in the British comic strip ''George And Lynne'' (featured in [[BritishNewspapers The Sun]]) -- the title characters seem to know a ''lot'' of couples who have first names beginning with the same letter (such as Dave and Donna, or Jack and Jenny).
* Lots of examples in ''Franchise/ArchieComics'': Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, Coach Clayton, Dilton Doiley, Moose Mason (full name plus nickname Marmaduke Merton Matowski "Moose" Mason), Waldo Weatherbee, Trula Twyst, Evelyn Evernever, and a few others. Some are nicknames or titles[[note]]for example, Jughead's full name is actually Forsythe Pendleton Jones III[[/note]], but it still fits.
* Stephen Stills of ''Comicbook/ScottPilgrim'', as well as four of Ramona's "Evil Exes": Gideon Graves, Roxy Richter and the Katayanagi twins (Kyle and Ken).
* Many characters in German comic strip ''ComicStrip/NickKnatterton''. (Barbara Beerbottle, Felix Finster...)
* In stories by Creator/WilhelmBusch: Literature/MaxAndMoritz, Hans Huckebein, Kuno Klecksel, Balduin Bählamm, and others.
* [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Ace Comics {{Superhero}} Magno the Magnetic Man.
* Minor ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' character Damien Darkblood, Demon Detective. In his latest appearance he remarked that he hates it when people say the "demon detective" part -- evidently it just sounds silly to him.
* In the German comic ''ComicBook/{{Werner}}'':
** Werner Wernersen.
** Günter Günzelsen.
* Peyo's superhero character Benoit Brisefer, also named Steven Strong and Benny Breakiron.
* Antonio "Tony Twist" Twistelli, a mob enforcer from ''Comicbook/{{Spawn}}''
** Todd [=MacFarlane=] admitted he named the character after real-life [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague NHL]] player Tony Twist. Unfortunately, the real Twist wasn't amused, and he sued [=MacFarlane=]... and won.
* Mindy [=McCready=][=/=]Hit-Girl from ''ComicBook/KickAss''.
