What is the greatest pun-filled name for a comic book character?

Of course, all Peter David creations are exempt. He likes puns too much.

So, outside of Peter David, what is the greatest comic character (or pair) that is based on a pun?

Mike Barr's Force of July?

Karl Kesel's Locke and Lode?

Gardner Fox's Major Disaster?

What do you think?

Does Major Bummer count? I don't know if it's a pun, since he wasn't actually a major.

how about dakota north? (last seen, i believe, in the original 'power pack' series.) though, perhaps her moniker isn't so much a pun as much as it's just a goofy name.

Ms. Tree IS a great name!

Dakota North was also a supporting character in early issues of Cage!

Oh yeah, and there's Sachs and Violens. Is that Peter David? If so, sorry.

Fourplay from Bloodstrike. She was a chick with four arms. Yeah.

And there's King Faraday. That's kind of a lame one though.

Kirkman has some good ones in Invincible like Rex-plode, Atom Eve, and Tripli-Kate.
