Kapow! The top 15 bands named after comic book superheroes (and supervillains)
1. Warlock / Him (or possibly HIM)
Warlock were fronted by Doro Pesch before the Germanic femme-metal frontgal went solo. HIM are, of course, the Finnish rockers from Helsinki fronted by Ville Valo.
Adam Warlock, originally known as Him, first appeared in Fantastic Four No.66 (September 1967). He is an artificial human created by scientists in a mysterious laboratory called The Enclave. Warlock was later reinvented by renowned artist/writer Jim Starlin, given cosmic powers and awarded his own comic. (Although the cover on the left appears to have been drawn by Gil Kane.)
