Introduction

To the uninformed reader, DC Comics' Animal Man may simply seem like another hero among the company's roster with a bizarre set of superpowers (being able to mimic the qualities and traits of any animal on Earth - and beyond in certain stories). But ask any longtime DC Comics fan about Animal Man and they'll likely tell you about the myriad of mind-bending, psychedelic stories that he's featured in over the decades. Animal Man has done everything from meeting his authors to having philosophical conversations with his childhood pet dog. Suffice it to say that Animal Man is one of the strangest characters in DC's pantheon of heroes but that's exactly why we love him!

Animal Man Inspired Dog Name Considerations

It likely won't come as a surprise that a guy named Animal Man would turn out to be one of the most eco-conscious heroes in the DC Universe - Bernhard Baker (often called Buddy for short) has an empathic link with every animal that has existed and currently exists in our world, so it would be hard for him to scarf down a chicken sandwich when he knows the thoughts and feelings of every animal on the planet. Buddy also goes out of his way to preserve the natural habitats of any animals he comes across, including humans. If you consider yourself to be a very environmentally conscious person, then you may want to read up about Animal Man a bit more after you finish with this guide. If you like what you come across, then you can name your dog after an Animal Character to pay homage to A-Man.

Like we mentioned before, Animal Man is really out there - even by comic book standards; he is notoriously featured in a really freaky, horror inspired storyline back when DC kicked off their New 52 initiative and he also met with the legendarily talented (and mystically inclined) author Grant Morrison back during the late 1980s and early 1990s. If you like bizarre, unconventional heroes then you are going to love Animal Man.
