Need Another Name From You! 07/23/2011

by Joe

SPOILERS AHEAD! Please watch today’s scene, first! :D

Give Joe a hand and help him name his “blockhead” creation! Like the Arbiter naming process, all you have to do is send me name suggestions via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, commenting, or the forums! I’ll choose my favourite 5 names and then we’ll have a vote in the forums :D

Can’t wait to hear your suggestions! (I love doing these, by the way :D)

Enjoy Scene 21 – “Blockhead”!

Please continue to vote! :D Bug’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS, too!

Give Scrufflebeck a good home by buying a Scrufflebeck keychain! They’re now available for CDN$10 in the store :D Thanks for your support!

FIRST BITCHES!

Irene on July 23, 2011 at 4:48 am

How about Powerblock? Or Blockfist? :D

Yinello on July 23, 2011 at 4:53 am

here a few ideas 1. blockjoe 2. steve 3. the blockster 4. superblock 3000 5. joey 6. roger 7. blockguy 8. super joe 9.blocky 10. blochy mc blocxkblock

Roger on July 23, 2011 at 4:54 am

Lol IM GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS PORTAL!!*keeps running into portal*
Im going to call him Creeper as he blows up

Lurker on July 23, 2011 at 5:07 am

C.J. for Cube Joe

Marquees on July 23, 2011 at 5:13 am

lolz video was made 45 minutes ago :P

hugs.ur.a.zombie on July 23, 2011 at 5:28 am

Cubefist…? Squareman? Safetyblock… naw, doesn’t quite fit.

sh4d0wfl4re on July 23, 2011 at 5:36 am

The Aperture Science Block-Shaped Companion Human

Infinite Virginity on July 23, 2011 at 5:41 am

Well…How about Rex Blockfist? It goes along with the powerfist look, while still implying that he’s not the real version by being made of blocks. And the ‘Rex’ would make him seem like a pet or slave to Joe, while the name also means ‘King’, showing the length and depth of Joe’s Ego.

AuronCartuum on July 23, 2011 at 5:41 am

Creeper!
SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSssssssssss
And BOOM he goes
Well, at least the first one :)

FurryRage on July 23, 2011 at 5:41 am

Powerface.

Because so far his only means of interacting with anything is to bash his face on it.

volpethrope on July 23, 2011 at 5:42 am

hehehe this is cool and also his skill in mindcrafting is improving is it not?
he used to make simple castles and now he created a entire…island i think
and a fake joe lol…or block joe either way
but i wander…does that exit really work?

scavenger on July 23, 2011 at 5:43 am

Lets call him “Powercube!”

:D

Elementis on July 23, 2011 at 5:56 am

I’ll name it Kazan. You know, like that guy from “The Cube”. Yep, he’s cubic. Kazan is also a Russian prison, and they’re currently trapped. It makes sense to me.

On another news… Am I the only one who thinks Joe is just a selfish moron? It will be bad for me when it will turn out he’s a great hero. When Joe’s around, I support zombies & co.

Sam on July 23, 2011 at 6:08 am

I thought Cubefist sounded kind of good… Cubefist.
Cuuuuubefiiiiiist! Yep, shadowflare’s first sounds like a winner. (Cubefist.)

hyperwarp85 on July 23, 2011 at 6:12 am

figure that inner joe probably did the same thing: made an exit. just couldn’t open it… until rosa opened it, where inner joe walked out, outer was pushed in. trapped in his own head XD

Decifer on July 23, 2011 at 6:26 am

His name should be Mortimus

Orkahm52 on July 23, 2011 at 6:44 am

OMG this is too funny, poor block guy. I think Mister Cube would be a good name.

"S" on July 23, 2011 at 6:47 am

I thinkscavanger made a suggestion without realising it: block joe. either that or blocky (like rocky but relating to his block-ness XD )

LucarioGuy1195 on July 23, 2011 at 6:56 am

Cubefist. Or Master Mind.

Nick on July 23, 2011 at 7:04 am

Powerbit!

Kaz on July 23, 2011 at 7:10 am

you should call him bubble just because of the irony

Red on July 23, 2011 at 7:28 am

Imaginifist?

Zairak on July 23, 2011 at 7:44 am

Powerdummy!

Erik on July 23, 2011 at 7:55 am

I know this is conna sound lame but i think that you should continue with the mincraft references and name him steve or mabe powersteve lol jk

but cubefist sounds pretty good too

IR0N_F3N1X on July 23, 2011 at 8:03 am

Joe Blocks (Joe Bloggs)

justsomeguy on July 23, 2011 at 8:23 am

Dr. Von McCubington

Alex on July 23, 2011 at 9:04 am

Joe3

ken2666 on July 23, 2011 at 9:14 am

I’m thinking Blockfist or Brickfist. PowerBlock?

Banrax on July 23, 2011 at 9:30 am

Cubic ass

Tesh on July 23, 2011 at 9:45 am

I think it should be Either Block Joe or Cubefist. i mean why not stick to the “Joe” theme. we have Creator Joe, Joe, and Inner Joe

Alex apocalypse on July 23, 2011 at 9:46 am

or name him “JoeDroid”. 3 Joes are not enough!

Tesh on July 23, 2011 at 10:00 am

Scruffleblock

Zanofer on July 23, 2011 at 10:08 am

Blockface? or perhaps Facefist? I could see Joe calling him Mr. Power or Mr. Cube-thingy.

Mr Rawr on July 23, 2011 at 10:27 am

Joe-bot the Robot? Or blockbot, really. …Names are harrrd. I’d name him Mr. Finkleberry.

prince platypus on July 23, 2011 at 10:28 am

why not blockhead?

saper on July 23, 2011 at 10:31 am

of all the things I’ve read and might think of, Joe^3 (Joe cubed) has been the best, in my opinion. evidently, several people disagree, but I’ll throw that out there.

Some Guy on July 23, 2011 at 10:42 am

FINALLY! Honestly, Joe needs this experience. Maybe he will finally learn how to do cool tricks if he stays in there long enough. Of course, if he stays in too long…well, you have a beautiful fantasy vs. harsh reality conflict again.

Raging Reaver on July 23, 2011 at 10:53 am

Just name him Tim :D

Blade on July 23, 2011 at 10:54 am

Okay, okayokayokay.

Best Idea Ever.

His name is Pow Block! Derivitive of Powerfist, the obligatory bloc/cube, and a Mario reference all at once! Plus it can easily be shortened to Pow.

Delta Pangaea on July 23, 2011 at 11:42 am

Powerfist cubed
Hey, why was it so easy for joe to make that?
But it’s powerfist cubed because its the third joe form, and its a block

Pat on July 23, 2011 at 12:00 pm

i have a great name! :
Señor blockington!
or jenkins, square, and mc’crafty

hypnokrit on July 23, 2011 at 12:04 pm

FrankenBlock

Frankie

Cubert

Mr. Square

Mr. Cube

ken2666 on July 23, 2011 at 12:20 pm

i go w/ the blockfist :) :)

ejay24 on July 23, 2011 at 12:49 pm

I’ve just realized something…

“Inner Joe” isn’t related to the parasite at all. It’s Joe’s id, the part of the mind composed of more primitive desires. Normally the Ego (Outer Joe) keeps the id in check, though in times of stress the id surfaces, much like how Rosa’s actions freed Inner Joe.

That gets me thinking though…could the mind-craft Joe be the Superego? He doesn’t talk much, and for some reason I think he’s pretty condescending towards Outer Joe. Heh, I doubt that’ll happen any time soon, but if it does, I’m calling dibs.

commenter on July 23, 2011 at 12:57 pm

@commenter ha! Your right, it does make perfect sense now all we’re missing is the subconscious Joe (might be part of the id, but I think that varies from person to person)

On another note I didn’t expect any of my name ideas to be forerunners on the naming tallies, I do like some others came up with though. (Kazan, Block Joe, Pow Block, Blockhead, Powerfist^3 all those are good)

sh4d0wfl4re on July 23, 2011 at 2:28 pm

If i were Joe I’d call him Jack, Jack O’Cube :D

J³ for short (or to the ones smarter than Joe)

Keter on July 23, 2011 at 2:38 pm

name it pat, hat, mat, cat, bat….. name it Blockbuster

mutant hunter on July 23, 2011 at 2:58 pm

I would call him blocky Joe. Following the names inner Joe and outer Joe.

Tschipi on July 23, 2011 at 5:28 pm

I like Delta’s idea, but just as “Pow”. I also like “Joe Blocks”.

pete on July 23, 2011 at 5:37 pm

Bit_Basher.
Also, nice. Inner outer Joe (who is normally outer Joe) can finally divert from blocks. Good.

Chaotick on July 23, 2011 at 5:41 pm

some thing stuiped liek steave and then you can crak jokes about that name later or something…

spike on July 23, 2011 at 5:59 pm

you still play mine craft joe?

spike on July 23, 2011 at 6:00 pm

He should be called “Blockhead Martin”

Chris B Chikin on July 23, 2011 at 6:13 pm

I see Joe has read my “MInecraft” comment. And now Joe (Charecter) knows abut it too. Joe (Author) Is really good at what ehs doing, AND Joe (Charecter) Said “Thats Kinda Mean” I rate ***** (5 Stars)

Leinahtan on July 23, 2011 at 8:53 pm

mmm…. Call him “Joecraft”!

LOL on July 23, 2011 at 8:58 pm

I think mindcraft Joe is going to find a way to open it and take control over the body.

Zombie Killer on July 23, 2011 at 9:21 pm

Omg lets call him Cubert i soo think that its the best name for him

Dagzter on July 23, 2011 at 9:26 pm

** ATTENTION JOE **
If someone wanted to help you make the pocalypse with you would it be possible to send the program to them that you are making the comic on through long distances? And if so could there be like a way the person can help you make the scene and send it to you for final editing? this would be perfect to expand on your idea for the comic, for example the comic would be released faster, maybe better and make the comic, or maybe comics in the future too, bigger? i would be intresting in trying to see how hard it is at first then possibly helping you…….. this could be the future of building onto greenpixel!

Skullbot on July 23, 2011 at 10:20 pm

Jack-in-the-Block? Or if Joe wants to be really ditzy, call him Bobblehead.

Yinello on July 23, 2011 at 10:56 pm

I like Marquees idea. C.J for Cube Joe

Sefrin on July 23, 2011 at 11:08 pm

The Mindfist!

Spectrite21 on July 23, 2011 at 11:15 pm

Blocky
or Blocker
The Block Of Destruction(TBOD)
Blockster
PowerBlock
and others

onlyguy on July 23, 2011 at 11:16 pm

H… Herobrick?
I loved Scruffleblock. I don’t think in-comic Joe would have much of an imagination for names, especially in his current situation :P

Snerky on July 23, 2011 at 11:22 pm

Something tells me that block head Joe has a scrufflebeck of his own.
Scrufflebeck = minecraft wolf :P

ken2666 on July 23, 2011 at 11:56 pm

I think his name should be Stevey

Nerfnerf on July 24, 2011 at 1:56 am

cuberfist

skeleton on July 24, 2011 at 2:48 am

I read some of these and i have concluded that.. by far one of the best ive seen are either Joe^3 or C.J. :) atleast in my opinion those are

Alex apocalypse on July 24, 2011 at 3:49 am

BlockBuster is perfect!

It sounds just as powerful as Powerfist, makes a resemblance to the fact he is cubed, is quite simple enough for OuterJoe to be the one to name him, etc…

Cubert is funny, makes a resemblance to cubes, sounds gentlemanly like a servant “which apparently he is to Joe”, etc…

C.J. is short, simple, resembles both Joe and Blocks, is easy to remember, sounds cute, and is an actual name…

Other names are quite useful for the cube fella, but are seemingly too complicated for OuterJoe to be the one to think of it… Like Joe^3, I doubt he knows enough math to know what it actually means…

Rampart on July 24, 2011 at 6:33 am

Jube (Joe + Cube)

AMRIV on July 24, 2011 at 6:43 am

Name him Kazan!

Cristian on July 24, 2011 at 8:17 am

“Cubicles ’cause it sound likes testicles hehehe.” Sounds like something Joe would say..To me at least..

Nate on July 24, 2011 at 8:30 am

Bonjour M Joe, and goodnight(it is nearly 9pm here), i agree with both NeoWarrior and Dagzter, Cubert would suit our sharply angled friend very well…….

Ro'Vage St Laurent on July 24, 2011 at 9:55 am

Oh silly Joe you must use Obsidian to make a portal and you activate it with a flint and steel!

Jeff on July 24, 2011 at 11:46 am

11:47 AM it’s 7:47 PM here!!!

Jeff on July 24, 2011 at 11:47 am

facehammer, hammerface, spang, bob, spangles.

tWiCHY on July 24, 2011 at 1:33 pm

name him sleeman or iron soul

1st on July 24, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Name him Cubefist! It seems to fit him perfectly. Also, I’m loving the development of Joe’s mental prowess. Before, he just made a few basic cubes at a time. Now, he created an entire island, and even his own personal AI slave. He can even blow stuff up. Amazing what he can do when he’s angry.

Nick on July 24, 2011 at 5:16 pm

BlockyJoes

DJ MafiOsO on July 24, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Remember to find shelter before nightfall Joe!

Noble 7 on July 24, 2011 at 6:39 pm

He looks like a misshapen butler, like he accidentally put his head in a Corby trouser press… he does have a lovely creased head: So Corby might be fitting

Although as far as butlers go I’d call him Horace. “Horace my dear fellow fix me an escape route, there’s a good chap”.

Hillbo on July 24, 2011 at 9:35 pm

Or Ian Drury, from Ian Drury and the Blockheads fame, although if you called him that he’d have to be called Ian Drury the whole time and it’d probably be a 1%er, although Corby would be a 1%er too i suppose :-S

Hillbo on July 24, 2011 at 9:41 pm

His name should be Jimbo :)

MorganrBan on July 24, 2011 at 10:23 pm

Well names are VERY hard to come up with but i got some
HeroJoe
Joe Mamma’s Brick
BJLOCEK (JOE spelled between letters in BLOCK)
MineJoeCraft
Blacky The Blocky (No offense)
MineJoe
CraftJoe
JoeMine
Joecraft
Creeper Joe
JOOOOEEEEEEO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Thats about it

Leinahtan on July 25, 2011 at 1:04 am

Or name him BLoCKOS

Leinahtan on July 25, 2011 at 1:06 am

I say Jeeper Because 1. J for Joe and 2. He blows up.
Or
Cube Dude Becase 1. It sorta rhymes
Or
Apple Because 1. I like apples

Jon on July 25, 2011 at 1:18 am

and joe means this JOE: Short form of English Joseph, meaning “(God) shall add (another son).”

jeftai on July 25, 2011 at 4:42 am

*AMRIV Jube (Joe + Cube)
and iff u say it it sounds like jew and thats kinda racist to me.
i know u dont mean it like that but really its really racist.
and seen waht joe did to the cubeboy it makes it sound like u want him to blow up jews.

jeftai on July 25, 2011 at 4:51 am

This seems weirdly similar to a game calledd minecraft… Not the plot, just his world, and he even calls it “minDcrafting” awesome! and Sir No Name sound good to me (Jeftai)

Khalia on July 25, 2011 at 7:43 am

Name him Kleeborg

LegendaryAsshole on July 25, 2011 at 7:45 am

Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! Keep ’em coming! I see a few front-runners, already :D

@Khalia – Yup! Minecraft is a big influence on how Joe (comic) chooses to shape his dream world! :D Big influence on me, too!

Joe on July 25, 2011 at 8:58 am

Just call him “Joe”….

-skimmer- on July 25, 2011 at 9:32 am

Friedrich von Blochenstein

Aethrys on July 25, 2011 at 12:25 pm

i have no clue for a name but i think outer joe should make a block scrufflebeck for this new joe

andrew on July 25, 2011 at 1:03 pm

How about Blockerhead and he has joes powers in mind craft yeah

Dalno on July 25, 2011 at 3:41 pm

Mame Him JCube
Joe + Cube

DJ MafiOsO on July 25, 2011 at 3:45 pm

Call Him!
Mogadishu

DJ MafiOsO on July 25, 2011 at 3:45 pm

What about Jock? or Minejoe? or maybe Mindjoe…

Yukisuna on July 25, 2011 at 6:12 pm

Boe, as in Block + Joe, as I had once said on Facebook

Shade person on July 25, 2011 at 11:25 pm

Maybe Joe couild overload Inner Joes mind by making a giant Mindcraft World then force him back in

Lurker on July 25, 2011 at 11:50 pm

Me I’m partally to Powerblock . Powerfist has no reference to the fact that he is a block. Second I don’t think anything with cube seems to sound cool enough 3 Joe in the name would be pushing the joe theme a little far don’t you think.

eric on July 26, 2011 at 2:05 am

Could just go with Block Joe :3

Seranatis on July 26, 2011 at 2:10 am

But if you call him Block Joe… his initials would be BJ. O.o

I find Scruffleblock funny enough. And he is green. xD

Yinello on July 26, 2011 at 6:35 am

Let’s be odd, and name him Notch…XD

For those of you who don’t know, it’s after the creator of Minecraft which is why Joe’s crafting (‘mindcrafting, actually) is always cube based – its from the author playing a bit too much minecraft. xD

Draekalovich on July 26, 2011 at 6:47 am

Out of the names listed, Blockington sticks out. It’s something that actually works as a name without being silly, complicated, overpowered or insulting.

Braneloc on July 26, 2011 at 7:51 am

Braneloc: I like the sound of Blockington… I proposed it in the Village Voice under your name…

NeoWarrior on July 26, 2011 at 9:05 am

why are being even more late joe.if you have trobles with your baby couldnt you hire a baby sitter and use a laptop to make a new comic in another place?

dracula dj on July 26, 2011 at 9:42 am

Alright, that does it. I’m making a Minecraft skin.

Noblaum on July 26, 2011 at 9:54 am

Joe’s probably making the poll for the names at the moment… He’ll take some time to do so before actually posting the comic, as he has done previously… Give him some time Senior Dracula

NeoWarrior on July 26, 2011 at 10:51 am

no trees on the leaves herobines been there

dave on July 29, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Blockbob Cubepants .. Ah ha ha .. That would have been hilarious .. Or maybe Optimus Prime .. Cause Comic Joe might be make him into that .. ^_^

Chris on July 30, 2011 at 1:13 am
