    I'm pretty sure that in his first appearances in X-Force it was spelt Tygerstryke and that it was wrong in the Northstar series.

    Here is a little something that has always annoyed me a bit...

    Do these heroes and villains choose how to spell their own names, or do newspapers and whatnot just have to guess when mentioning them in stories?

    Seriously. Do these people stay up at night, sewing their spandex costumes and trying to think of unique ways to spell their names? And do they have to then TELL everybody how it is spelled?

    Villain, robbing a bank: "Yes, this is the villain WypperWill robbing you. That's W-Y-P-P-E-R, W-I-L-L; make sure you spell that correctly. Have you got it? Repeat after me; Wypperwill - W-Y-P..."

    Or

    "No, no, you've got me confused with that other guy. I am the hero Spyderman, spelled with a Y instead of an I. Got it now?"

    Then you know that, yes, villains stop in the middle of crimes to tell reporters how to spell their names.

    Can you tell me which X-Force Tygerstryke initially appeared in? Just in case (one day) I get some money to buy it.

    #11-13, 22-23.

    I might be wrong on the spelling though, it's been a while since I read them.

    I've just checked my Marvel Premiere Classics, and in #12 it's 'Tygerstryke' and in #23 it's 'Tigerstryke'.

    The colours of his costume change, too. (White in #11-12, part yellow in 22-23.)

    Nope. I work in the civil service.

    Out of curiosity, why do you ask?

    Because of your interest in the colouring in comics; besides that, just nosey.
