    They never made the grade!

    But why?

    NB: For some reason, none of the following are part of any shared universe. Nor are any massively budgeted films in preparation about any of them.




    But maybe they should be! :emoji_nerd:

    Hilarious! Though I remain very fond of the Legion of Super Heroes and some of their frankly dodgier members.
    I can't stand Iron Man by the way - I'd shove him down to the Sunday league without batting an eyelid.

    The Legion of the Superpets


    [​IMG]


    Who can blame Invisible Kid? That airplane looks mighty small, and we doubt any of them are toilet-trained.

    In 1962, DC created the Legion of Super Pets. Consisting of Kypto the Super-Dog, Beppo the Super-Monkey, Comet the Super-Horse and Streaky the Super-Cat, the pets assisted Superman and Supergirl, and were able to communicate with them telepathically. No, of course they couldn’t speak, that’d be ridiculous!

    I remember the Super-Pets (go Krypto!) but Jell-o Man? YOU ARE MAKING THEM UP NOW to give us all nightmares.., but it clearly shows you are highly skilled in faking the style of classic comic covers .
    Bravo Doc. A chorus line of tasteless disco dancers prances your praises.

    Arm Fall Off Boy
    DC Comics

    First Appearance: Secret Origins Vol. 2 #46, (1989)

    Created by Curt Swan

    This is how it went.

    CURT: SO, DC, WHADDUP? YO, I’VE GOT THIS IDEA FOR A GUY WHO CAN DETACH HIS ARMS AND USE ’EM AS CLUBS. HAVING A BIT OF TROUBLE THINKING OF NAMES THOUGH. FANCY HELPING?

    DC COMICS: SURE! HOW ABOUT LEPER?

    CURT: NAH.

    DC COMICS: MR POTATO ARMS?

    CURT: TOO OBSCURE. I NEED SOMETHING MORE EXPLANATORY.

    DC COMICS: ARM FALL OFF BOY…

    CURT: NAILED IT!


    Lame rating: Mostly Armless.

    Captain Marvel


    [​IMG]


    Not to be confused with the other, more well-known Captain Marvel, this guy had the alarming ability to throw his arms and legs at enemies. It’s not a particularly powerful ability, but I’m sure it caught the bad guys off guard.

    Nope,all legit, honest! The comic book artists and creators all really thought that each of these trav.... creations might be the Next Big Thing! :emoji_grin:

    You have prompted me to have closer look into Jello Man and Wobbly though....





    So it turns out that one was a promotional pastiche comic, given away, never intended to be an issue two. :emoji_alien:
