I have often thought that Superheroes with color based names are odd. I can't imagine anyone naming themselves "Green Arrow" or "Blue Beetle". Its the type of name I could see the press using but in a dismissive way.
Names based on colors don't strike me as odd since they're straightforward and simply descriptive of the superhero's appearance. Names based on superlatives are much weirder if you apply real world logic (which of course one shouldn't when it comes to some aspects of superheroes). Superman and Wonder Woman maybe get away with it because they're given their names by the press, but for Reed Richards to choose to call himself Mr. Fantastic is rather strange:
