  2. I don't follow DC comics but I'm deeply suspicious of this 'Sinestro' guy who who has red skin, pointy ears, a small black moustache and a widow's peak.

  3. He is not from an English speaking country. The name most likley means something different in his natie language. And it is very unlikley that the double o should be pronounced u as in English.

    1. So, working on the assumption that the 'oo' is pronounced the way Bob Moog pronounced his own name, that would make him (phonetically) "Dr. Dome". I don't see this as much of an improvement ;)

  4. What about Dr. Doom's fifth cousin, Dr. Bob Doom, DDS? He became a dentist. Granted, he did try a brief foray into supervillainy, but after She-Hulk defeated him, she kept him as her dentist. Think about how good a dentist he must be for her to do that.
