I think about this a lot! I named my comic when I was 13, and no real thought (beyond "well this is an animal pun") went into it because I never anticipated posting my stuff online or getting readers.
If I renamed my comic today, I would probably go for a short, one-word, probably all-caps 60s slang title, like KICKS.
I'm very into this sort of title, you can put it on a zine cover and it looks great.
I like KICKS because besides having a nice catchy snap to it, it's slang for good times, which is what I hope my comic evokes!

Please just call it FITCH.
I guess I'd fall back on the working title that I used for months: "Sun in the Night Sky"
Or like... "Space Mutiny" or something.

I already had to do that before I started drawing it.
I was going to call it “Wacky Mac Massacre,” but then I realized that Wacky Mac is an existing brand of noodles. I thought about changing it to Wacky Noodle Massacre, but once I learned that Wacky Noodles are a brand of pool toys, I had to find a different title YET AGAIN. I searched for synonyms to Wacky and ended up with Krazy. Here we are.
If I had to completely change the title, I.....dunno what I’d even change it to. Maybe Noodle Hell, but probably not because that’s lame. I have a thing for freaky word salad titles.
I would wait until you changed your comic's name and then steal that name rename my comic "Awkward Paws" because I love animal-related puns. :-) Or go with some other animal reference, probably, pun or otherwise... though probably pun.
Fun Fact: One early name idea I had was "Horsin' Around." I decided it was too long for my tastes, and lucky for me I did, or I'd have gotten lots of harassment from "Bojack Horseman" fans for ripping off the name, despite my comic predating the show by a decade.
If I were to change LECTRO's title, it'd be something like Legends of Outer City, or Outer City Warriors.
Legends, because I imagine that most superheroes wind up becoming local legends. Definitely happened with several of the ones I grew up with.
Warriors was a potential name from when I got serious with making the comic, and I came up with a reason later. Basically, The Outer City Warriors are Outer City's Superhero League - or it would be, if they had enough members.
@Roux - Okay if I ever do a spinoff comic series that just revolves ENTIRELY around Faustus (which, actually, I'm already there), it's gonna be called FITCH, no question, I'm incredibly into that title.
I like your current title more than the working one, I'm glad you went with Turn Back The Sun! Dunno why I'm speaking in rhymes.
@Lutz - Y'know what I'm pretty into NOODLE HELL, I think I'd want it fully capitalized if it happened. NOODLE HELL
Side note, I've been meaning to try Wacky Mac pasta one of these days, I always pass by it when I'm walking through the Kosher section at the grocery and I always go "huh, wonder how that is."
@Kelty - See I like "Nightlight" as a title a lot though! I don't think you should be embarrassed about it!
found your new title, Taily
@Snarkclaw - Oh dang haha, looks like I better keep my comic's name so you don't run off with it! I would say "Deer Me" is on par animal-pun-wise though, you're solid.
Taily:Hmm! I think it's workable, maybe ditch the "Like"? A Heart Bared? I think the "Like" would make it a little clunky.
I prefer it with the "Like" because it seems like a part of a sentence, and makes me wonder about the rest of the sentence. Though semantically it makes more sense without the like, I suppose...? Ah well, the search goes on.
Also, eons ago, I came up with the ancestor of this story. I called it... Blindingly Shiny Story so I guess I could revert to that 8D!!!
Still working on the details of this comic, but if I couldn't use Anak Bintang I'd just...translate it into English. It'd be call Starchild - but the working title was actually Starseed, which is apparently a UFO conspiracy thing. The More You Know (TM).
Everything's on hiatus, I'm writing history essays and Anak Bintang. Follow TradScribbles and my Instagram for semi-reliable updates.
