Can anyone translate words like "pow" 'bam" "bang" "boom" "crunch" etc. I'm working on creating an old school comic book for my high school spanish class. I need words that would pop up after a punch in an original Batman Episode. If some one has some translations, that would be great.
Quick responses would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums, natelangel

    My try:

    pow=¡paf!
    bam=¡pam!
    bang=¡bang!
    crunch=¡crotch!

    I love comics :)

    By the way, please note that exclamations in Spanish begin with a reverse exclamation note, like a (i), just like I posted them.

    Hi Nateangel... and welcome to the forum.

    You will see I have modified your thread's title to include some of the words whose equivalencies you were loonkg for. INcluding ther terms (or phrases, when applicable) in thread titles is customary here at WordReference for two important reasons:
    1) it helps our dicionaries' Search function
    2) it provides at-a-glance thread differentiation

    So please keep this matter regarding titles in mind when you open your next threads... and we thank you in advance for your future cooperation. :thumbsup:

    Saludos,
    LN

    My old Spanish book used "uf" instead of "ow"

    Typically, you can't expect immediate responses, but your question will eventually be answered...

    The Search feature in the blue bar at the top of the screen will give you many related threads, including these (click on each one):

    wham/bam, bump/thump, bombín, go bump, big noises, chuculún, zas y más

    Hope they help.

    As for kingpin, it's in the dictionary as líder. I'm not sure what the Kingpin character in el Hombre Araña is called. If you really want to know, you should open a new thread with "Spider-Man's Enemies" as the title. You'll get quickly get a list of all his nemeses, in Spanish.
