READING, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 01: A general view inside the former Reading prison building on September 1, 2016 in Reading, England.

The exhibition opens to the public from September 4, 2016. Included in the exhibit is former inmate Oscar Wildes original wooden cell door, which is on display in the prison chapel.

Although names like these 11 criminals were given sound like they were created by Stan Lee, bank robbers’ nicknames are actually coined by a real-world authority: the FBI.

Check out this list given by the FBI for the most amusing robber nicknames!

Paint By Numbers Bandit

 In 2007, several suburban Chicago banks were held up by the Paint By Numbers Bandit, who had a boring, unimaginative approach to crime. This guy earned his name because his black coat had some white paint on it, proving that one of the greatest risks of the klepto career track is receiving a hurtful nickname.

Sabbatical Bandit

He’s just a common plunderer who took four years off between robberies.

Weathergirl Bandit

The Weathergirl Bandit just liked to chit-chat about this and that, such as the weather, while committing robbery.

Bucket List Bandit

This Missouri marauder earned his name after passing a teller a note with something other than a demand for cash: it said the guy only had months to live.

Attila the Bun Bandit

Bank robber who happened to wear her hair in a bun when going on a thievery spree in 2006.

Good Grammar Bandit

When writing his trademark threatening notes, he was careful, clean, and grammatically correct.

Bubble Wrap Bandit

This boring brigand received his nickname because he was carrying a bubble-wrapped envelope during one of his sinister stick-ups.

Clark Kent Bandit

Like Clark Kent, this Baltimore baddie wore a suit and glasses. Unlike Clark Kent, he stole from local banks rather than leaping from tall buildings.
