Weirdest Comic Book Superheroes of All Time Vol. #1
The superheroes in comic books are meant to be impossibly powerful with otherworldly powers. So, each and every one is weird in their own way.
However, there have been some ideas for comic book heroes that went flying way off the rails. So far they should’ve been stopped before they began, but they weren’t. Instead of someone saying, “This is a stupid idea. We can’t make this ridiculous comic.”
The superheroes on the Weirdest Comic Book Superheroes of All Time #1 made it through the entire creation process and ended up on store shelves. Where most of them remained until the store owner replaced them with something people would actually buy.
The Dogwelder (DC Comics, 1997)
A mute superhero in a welding mask who traps stray dogs in back alleys and then uses his welding tools to weld them to the faces of bad guys.
Whoever came up with the Dogwelders superpower should be in the market for psychiatric help.
Big Bertha (Marvel Comics, 1989)
A morbidly obese mutant who can manipulate her body weight and can get as fat as she wants, growing stronger and more invincible as she does. (She slims down by power puking,” expelling most of her fat. )
There’s no way Marvel would get away with creating this character in today’s social climate. Not with everyone’s feelings taking precedent over everything.
Everyone’s feelings except for Chris Rock, apparently no one cares about Chris Rock’s feelings. Not with the way he got bitched out on stage and then the person who assaulted him, Will Smith, has everyone feeling sorry for him.
Anyway the point was Marvel could never make Big Bertha in today social climate.
Squirrel Girl (Marvel Comics, 1992)
She can control and communicate with squirrels. Her sidekick: Monkey Joe. (He’s a squirrel.)
Squirrel Girl isn’t that bad really, I mean what makes squirrel Girl any worse than Batman or Catwoman or Robin. The animal isn’t the problem with this character, it’s the writing around the character.
Gunfire (DC, 1993)
He can excite the atoms in any object to create an explosive force that essentially turns anything he touches into a gun
Brother Power the Geek (DC, 1968)
He was a mannequin dressed in hippie clothes, until he was struck by lightning and came to life. He also runs incredibly fast and can’t feel pain.
Tar Baby (Marvel Comics, 1985)
A homeless street punk with a mohawk, a studded leather jacket, and a superpower: his body releases a tarlike substance that makes him able to stick to anything.
Dead Girl (Marvel Comics, 1991)
She’s a zombie, but she can reanimate herself into a live human whenever she likes.
Zeitgeist (Marvel Comics, 2001)
He vomits acid.
The Red Bee (Quality Comics, 1940)
Dressed in red and yellow stripes to resemble a bee, his ability was being able to control a highly intelligent bee that he stored in a pouch behind his belt buckle. The Red Bee made the bee sting bad guys.
Weird Trivia fact – The bee’s name was Michael
Vibe (DC Comics, 1984)
Formerly a Detroit gang leader named Paco Ramone, by day he’s now a breakdancer. By night, hes Vibe a superhero with the power to shoot intense vibrational waves that knock
down bad guys,
