Unlikely Comic Book Characters

Some time ago, LeFalcon posted a picture of a comic book cover featuring supervillain “Paste Pot Pete.”  Unfortunately this image is no longer available.  Here’s another:

After the jump, some other, equally unlikely, comic book characters.

I used to have a soft spot for these guys: “The Metal Men.”  The stories were clever, though you could always see the chemistry lesson inside them.  To my amazement, there was some activity in Hollywood a year or two ago to make a feature film starring the Metal Men.

 Here’s “Prez,” an 18 year old elected to our nation’s highest office.  At least he’s not John McCain.

 Of course, there are certain challenges every president must face.  I suppose all presidents find themselves fending off vampire attacks at some point.  I just hope Mr O has plenty of garlic on hand:

I knew it was a mistake to hire Hillary Clinton!

One of the less threatening names a supervillain has sported is “The Gentleman Ghost.”

I take personal offense at this one: “3D Man.”  I exist in three dimensional space!  Are they saying that makes me some kind of freak?  Am I supposed to have superpowers?  The three-dimensional among us should organize an antidefamation league and protest.

    Thanks for bring this to my attention. I, as a 3-Dim, am deeply offended and demand restitution.

    And notice that the two villains in front are shooting at 3D Man’s crotch. It’s 3D sexuality they fear!

    Yep, these villains call me at $2.98 per minute.

    Did I say “$2.98”? Silly me. It’s $1.98.

    So pick up those phones, villains!

    That may explain a great deal. It’s the third dimension they fear… 2-D sex organs appeal to them… that would explain the attraction of porn… they wish their own sex organs were 2-D… hmm, this is starting to sound like the germ of a real theory.

    Gosh, I didn’t see this turn coming when I decided to put Paste Pot Pete back on the blog.

    I wonder what Paste Pot Pete can tell us about the guys who call you…
