DC Universe Dog Name Considerations

DC characters have extensive legacies that stretch all the way back to Depression Era America; the likes of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern have become so ingrained in contemporary culture that they are often considered to be symbols of societal movements. Wonder Woman has become a prominent figure in many Women's Rights movements and virtually every Justice League member under the sun has been involved in a number of anti-bullying campaigns, disaster relief efforts, and other philanthropic causes. Case in point, the characters of the DC universe have transcended merely being fictitious characters by becoming real life symbols for everyday people to rally behind. If you're keen on a certain philosophy or civil rights movement, there's undoubtedly a DC character that represents that ideal to the letter. Naming your dog after a DC character could seen as a way of showing solidarity with a certain cause. 

Moreover, you could opt to name your dog after a DC character because you've read a comic, watched a show, or seen a film that they were in which affected you in a major way. DC characters have appeared in virtually all forms of media to date, so to say that their impact on the realm of entertainment is huge is something of an understatement. Nevertheless naming your dog after your favorite DC hero, or after one of their alter egos, is an awesome way to let others known you're a die hard comic book fan.
