Forgive the all-CAPS shouting in the headline, but what better way to describe this list of characters? This is a list of comic book villains who combine all the powers of a specific super team. I’m not just talking about power mimics or power thieves, either. I’m not talking about your Rogues or your Peter Petrellis or your Synchs or your Absorbency Lads.
These are characters who, for whatever reason, limit themselves to copying the super-powers of just one group.
Maybe they were built by a mad scientist to oppose a specific super team. Maybe they have a magical power and just decided to focus on one group. Maybe they’ve got a super weapon that combines the powers of all the other super weapons in the comic. Whatever the case may be, these guys have one specific power set in their battles against one specific super group. It’s kind of a pigeon-holed role, but everybody needs a gimmick.
So join me after the jump for six comic book characters who possess all the powers of one specific super team! Dazzle in the specificity!
Hooray for Comic-Con! When you read this review list, I’ll already be on my way to Boston Comic-Con to promote my own self-published comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen! We have issues to hand out and hands to shake, so it should be a great trip! And a great culmination of my week’s vacation. I’ll see some good friends, hopefully make some new fans, and basically have a good, enjoyable time. That’s what vacation is all about.
Though vacation may have also made me a little lazy. I read a couple comics this week, but none of them really wowed me. I don’t know if the comics just weren’t very good this week, or if I’m in some kind of special lazy zone. But even the likes of the Lumberjanes, Gotham Academy, Amazing Spider-Man, Wonder Woman and the all new All-Star Batman didn’t get me very excited. Fortunately, this week saw the debut of Superwoman, and it’s really good!
Though it was also nice to see Tim Drake kicking butt again in Detective Comics! DC is really hitting it out of the park lately.
Comic Reviews: All-Star Batman #1, Amazing Spider-man #16, Detective Comics #938, Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy #3, Superwoman #1 and Wonder Woman #4.
So I’m on vacation this week, and that makes for a very lazy Sean. Turns out, I do a lot of my best work when I’m actually at work. When I’m at home, there are too many video games and whatchamahoosits to play with to stay focused. What can I say? I like to play!
So forgive me if this video is the best I can do on these lazy stay-at-home days!
Still, it makes some good points about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though now we’re on to making fun of Suicide Squad, so Cinema Sins might be a little late to the party.
Superman will appear in the new season of Supergirl, marking the first time in all these years that one of the big DC Trinity has been allowed to appear in the Arrowverse. Normally, DC refuses to let their major movie characters appear on their TV shows, no matter how awesome it would be. Could this be a sign that Wonder Woman and Batman (and Robin) might get to show up somewhere down the line? I hope so!
That is actor Tyler Hoechlin as Supes. I’m not familiar with him, but I’d say he looks the part. And the costume works too! It’s a great Superman adaptation to the Arrowverse. One hopes that Robin’s eventual costume looks just as cool!
Honest Trailers delivers the long-awaited goods! Remember Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice? They do!
Good times. Good times. Oh, also, it came out on DVD today. So that’s something.
