More Forced Mets Super Hero Names: Part 5

Marketing/twitter/Mets Fans/Media are all getting ridiculous with the obsession of giving Mets Players forced comic book hero names. I decided that I am going to jump in with some myself then...Running out of characters so I am really scraping the bottom of the barrel here folks....

                                                   Asdrubel "Thunder Strike" Cabrera

"Hey Guys, I have an idea. Since Cabrera went blonde, let's start calling him Thunder Strike. It's as cool as Thor. And we can add a long piece of fake hair to his hat and helmet. Think of the promo giveaways!!"

Eric Masterson first appeared in Thor #391, as a supporting character. Thor #408 featured the merging of the character Eric Masterson with Thor, Masterson being utilized as the God of Thunder's alter ego until issue #432.[2] Thor #432 featured the character assuming the role of Thor, and appearing as the title character until Thor #459.[3]
Following Thor #459, Masterson was introduced as "Thunderstrike" in the eponymous series starting in June 1993. The series lasted approximately two years. Thunderstrike ran for 24 issues, the series canceled in September 1995. Creator Tom DeFalco has often claimed that the book outsold Thor and The Avengers combined at the time of its cancellation;[4] although this has been shown to be extremely unlikely.[5] Masterson also appeared in the mini-series Thor Corps as Thunderstrike, and appeared as a guest star in the Thor series.
