Paronomasia is a fancy word for a pun. I’ve been dying to use it in a sentence–and well I guess I just did, and this comic is certainly playing around with the meaning of a word or a name in this case.
My original paronomasiac character consisted of “Fe” to be iron man (2nd use in a sentence – woohoo). Several people I tested the comic on had either forgotten their high school chemistry or couldn’t find the humor in it. I decided to use a much more readily identifiable paronomasia (3rd!!!).
