Naming Names

Although X-Statix Presents: Dead Girl ended with a whimper rather than a bang, issue #5 did start off with a fine example of that old standard: a hero facing grave danger reveals her "true" name to her comrades.

(Perhaps Milligan is satirically commenting on Civil War here, too.)

Whatever the reason, Dead Girl's informing us that her name is Moonbeam ranks up there with the Robert Duvall character in Open Range (whom everyone calls "Boss") revealing to Kevin Costner's Charlie that his parents had named him Bluebonnet.
