It seems like every other day, a new superhero movie comes out. That genre is definitely the hot trend at the box office these days, and even obscure superheroes squeeze their way into the Marvel and DC universes. However, not every super-powered human deserves their own movie. Here are some of the worst to ever appear in comics:
This superhero’s origin story starts out okay – he is bitten by a cobra and has to have a blood transfusion, which gives him super-speed. The odd thing is that the blood belongs to a mongoose. And our superhero decides to call himself “Whizzer.”
Besides having a very not-intimidating name, this guy’s super powers are to literally inflate into a giant ball and bounce on his enemies.
Ulysses Solomon Archer
After his brother is killed, Ulysses Solomon Archer gets a metal plate in his head, which grants him the power of picking up CB radio transmissions. This proves to be very useful, because CB radios are what truckers use, and a trucker killed his brother. He also has an 18-wheeler that the devil gave him in exchange for his soul, so he’s got that going on, too. He’s like a much-less cool Ghost Rider.
He may look cool, but his powers are pretty weak. Doorman can teleport people…but only to the next room.
He probably has the most literal name ever – his arm literally detaches. He then uses it to beat his enemies over the head.
A member of the X-Men, this female superhero can turn music into light. While this would be awesome at parties, we’re not sure how this would be useful in a crime-fighting situation.
A former Fat Lady from the circus, Pink Pearl’s only power is her size, which gives her superior strength. She’s from Marvel, and since they love to include dozens of their comic characters in their movies, maybe she’ll make a cameo appearance?
