I guessed on the last two questions, on account of I've never heard of "CAPTAIN NICE" or of "MR. TERRIFIC".

It was a fun parody. Real name, Carter Nash. First superhero outing, some guards saw his monogrammed belt and asked what it was for, best he could come up with was "Captain Nice". Lived with his mother who was not impressed by his choice.

Took a wild guess on a few of these (before my time).

You would also have had to accept "Ralph Hanley" for TGAH's alter ego, as for a brief period they dubbed in a new name due to him accidentally having the same last name as the world's biggest Jodie Foster fan.
