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

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.

ten years pass...

6. Razor-Fist

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.
