    I don't care what the meaning behind it is, Orphan will never not be stupid.

    Drake isn't as bad as some are making it out to be it. just how we came by it that's a bit lame.

    Honestly I'd like the codename a lot more if it wasn't just...you know....his freakin name xD

    it's his freaking name and a duck. still, it's a hard decision between Drake and Orphan.

    At least the word "Drake" sounds cool. my only gripe is how unimaginative it it is. Like when Todoroki made his codename his first name (BNHA fans, where you at!?)
    But at least that was played off as comedic. This is just...kinda boring. But still a million times better than Orphan.

    This is it. Drake does sound cool. Idon't even mind that it's a duck. I just mind the motivation behind it and the fact that it's his name.

    None of them are great, but at least I get the logic behind Drake.

    Drake and Signal are both pretty poor, but "Spoiler" sound like her superpower is giving away plot twists.

    I don't think any of them sound bad. Maybe spoiler, but it was pretty apt to what she was doing. At least when she was re-introduced in the New52 (didn't read about her in pre-Flashpoint).

    I don't think there's anything wrong with Orphan. It's evocative.
    As for Drake and people saying it's a duck. You know what it also is? A dragon. In fact, the word is far more famously connected to dragons than with ducks.
    I get the feeling people are just looking for reasons to complain.

    I never like Signal. Being named after the Batsignal. Come on. Kinda lame.
    Favorite teams. Avengers, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    If, in story, they referenced dragons there wouldn't be a problem. It's the "It's the most dangerous bird" line that is causing people to laugh.

    And Drake as dragon really only shows up on the radar of people who love fantasy games and books... to everyone else who has taken a basic animal biology class in high school, Drake is like Hen, Kid, Rooster, Stallion, Mare, etc. - a gendered term for an animal.
