wtf Secret Invasion, killing like one of the five non-X characters I kind of halfway care about

The word 'dead' should always be placed in inverted comas when referring to Marvel characters.

chap, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 13:42 (eleven years ago) link

Or any superheroes/villains in general.

Not only is Janet currently dead in mainstream continuity, she's dead in the Ultimates universe too, as during the current "Ultimatum" arc, she was eaten by The Blob.

Yes, I said eaten.

I've tried to read those Ultimates books, but was turned off by the macho vibe and the gratuitious roughness and violence. I guess it just get worse? (And Janet seemed to be the most interesting character in the group.)

Jesus, that picture just gave a bad 90s Image flashback.

5. Madcap

http://www.geocities.com/marvel_villain/madcap/madcap1.jpg

He regenerates rapidly (seconds to mend broken bones, even resurrect himself after deadly injuries), and feels no pain.

Madcap's second superhuman power is the ability to psionically stimulate the inhibition centers in other human beings' brains. By stimulating them, he can cause other people to act in a generally euphoric, uninhibited, outlandish manner.

His first encounter is with Captain America's sidekick Nomad (RIP). Then he battles Daredevil, She-Hulk, Power Pack, Ghost Rider, Impossible Man, Deadpool and Heroes For Hire. He may be the only villain with a Nomad encounter as the high point of his career.

Sadly, I don't think he's been seen in over a decade.

Madcap was one of my favorite characters when I was about 12 or so. He's certainly due for a comeback. Actually, I'm kind of surprised Dan Slott hasn't used him yet...

At least his second superpower sounds kinda cool if used properly in a story.

Tuomas, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 21:35 (eleven years ago) link

Yeah, but I can imagine it being REALLY cheesy if used poorly. "rofl Wolverine acts WAAAAAAACKY!"

Doctor Casino, Tuesday, 27 January 2009 22:43 (eleven years ago) link

Basically, Madcap’s a dude at an American rave in the 90s, wearing clown tights and handing pills out to everyone?

If you're gonna create a villain that finally does the unthinkable and kills Superman, couldn't you at least make him look scary?

Giving him a big thorny cock would at least make him more intimdating in that shot.

Pretty much, except he's from 1985, and I imagine meant to bring yucks to the lol Reagan years.

Madcap was one of my favorite characters when I was about 12 or so.

Me too! I was a sucker for the Gruenwald/Neary Cap run - Madcap, Armadillo, Scourge - what's not to love? I even GM'ed a session of the Marvel Super Heroes RPG with Madcap as the villain. My friends hated it.

But despite my love, he's corny as shit.

FYI, this has never, ever happened.

I couldn't find an actual corn-based superhero, but surely there must be one...

Oh yeah this dude has the power to turn into any flavored ice cream.

6. Razor-Fist

https://i2.wp.com/www.panelsonpages.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Razor-Fist-Turnaround.jpg

http://i61.tinypic.com/a3eds5.jpg

This dude's "superpower" is exactly what it says on the tin, he has two large blades where his hands should be. The first Razor-Fist was just a one-shot Shang-Chi villain who died in the 1970s, but a few years later, for some inexplicable reason, Doug Moench, his creator, deciced to bring back two new characters (identical brothers) with the same gimmick. And apparently all three Razor-Fists willingly had their hands amputated and replaced by blades! I guess they were living the sort of life where wiping your own ass or masturbating or dressing yourself isn't a priority?

Anyway, one of the two brothers survived his initial appearance and, again inexplicably, kept on appearing in Marvel comics up until the 2010s, before he was killed by Deadpool last year. That's a pretty respectable, 37-year run for a villain who sounds like he was made up by a 10-year old.

Razorfist has always struck me as more horrifying than corny. Like you clearly aren't thinking clearly when you make that decision, and you're certain to almost immediately regret it once it's been made.

Like I imagine Razorfist being a procedure (not unlike the Human Centipede) which is imposed upon an unwilling subject who rises from a dazed state of unconsciousness to find that his life has been inexorably altered and very likely shortened and he doesn't even know how he's going to open the door of this dingy black market operating theater he's woken up in let alone how he's going relieve his intense need to urinate.

And this is why your community has petitioned to have you undergo the procedure, my onanistic friend.
