Magneto. They've gone back and forth as to whether the name "Erik Lensherr" is actually his real identity or not.

The other big one is the Joker. The Joker has never had a definitive origin story; The Killing Joke has been retconned as the Joker lying about his actual identity. And no, his real name is not Jack Napier.


There are a ton of characters whose real names were not revealed in their first appearances, especially "mysterious villains".

I assume you mean protagonists/heroes, since your examples are all such.

Protagonists Unidentified to this Day

-- Deadpool, as the OHOTMU has confirmed Joe Kelly's version of his origin such that "Wade Wilson" is not his real name.

-- Straw Man/Scarecrow (may not have a real name in any meaningful sense)

-- Sir Steel and the Silver Squire of Freedom's Five; this is a bit of a cheat in that the characters were only seen in cameo flashback's to Union Jack (Montgomery, Lord Falsworth)'s World War I career.

Protagonists Unidentified in First Appearance

-- Wolverine would be an obvious case; even his longtime alias, "Logan," didn't turn up until Uncanny X-Men #103. "James Howlett" is obviously a later revelation still

-- Hawkeye's real name was not revealed until Avengers v1 #64

-- Solo; real name wasn't revealed until his miniseries

-- Cloud, of the New Defenders

-- Moondragon

-- Drax the Destroyer

We STILL don't know the Mandarin's actual true name, do we?

What's the current status of Longshot?
Omega the Unknown?
(Maybe one or both of these two should be put in the following section)

Clea (did not get a name until Roy Thomas took over writing Dr. Strange)

Rogue (only got a name after the first movie)

Silver Surfer

Spider-Woman? (Didn't they at first believe she was a mutated spider?)

Stranger (well, not sure if he counts as a protagonist, but he did defeat Magneto at his first appearance)

Actually, her name was revealed in Ditko's last issue, which Denny O'Neil scripted.
