"Bouncing Boy"
You should read his original "secret origin" story! He's a slacker delivery boy for a professor who slips into a baseball game while working. Instead of drinking a bottle of soda he drinks the professor's super-rubber compound and becomes able to inflate and bounce! I think MOST of the Legionairres were fashioned around a silly code-name that came first.
Actually I wasn't laughing at the name as much as I was laughing at the character's ability. Even when I read the Legion stories as a kid, thought Bouncing Boy had the most ridiculous "super" power of just about any character in comics at the time.
