Perhaps the original Hank McCoy as The Beast wasn't quite as exactly on point appellation-wise compared to Ice Man, Angel, and Cyclops. Never ever longed for him to be hirsute just to suit the moniker, though!
Matt Murdock’s natural senses were heightened by his radioactive encounter. I have no problem with Stick teaching him how to focus those heightened senses, to get the most out of them, but suggesting that it ALL came from Stick’s training is several bridges too far.
The idea that ANYONE could benefit from such training of course de-uniques Daredevil.
I remember thinking when I was a kid that when Phoenix's debut it was to address Jean having a lame name compared to all the other X-Men's, especially the newer one. Marvel Girl and Invisible Girl always seemed to pale in comparison to names like Angel, Cyclops, Beast, Mr. Fantastic, Thing ...
What is a bit contradictory is that Hickman's X-Men emphasize the use of mutant codenames to highlight their mutant condition but he has at least 4 relevant characters constantly using their "human" names: Sebastian Shaw, Jean Grey, Kate Pryde and Emma Frost!
