Superheroes are pretty darn amazing.
We're here because we all love them, right? We love to read all about their exploits, origins, adventures, troubles and all around bad-assery. But have you ever picked up a comic and thought, "Man, this is really, really BAD." And not in the whole "this is bad, how is he/she going to get out of this one" way. No no no. I'm talking about the, "WTF WERE THEY THINKING WHEN THEY WROTE THIS" way. I'm betting you have, at least once or twice. Well, the guys and gals over at Top 6 (newly renamed/upgraded to Top 10 as of 1/6/16) released a video last week talking about six superheroes that they think might be the absolute WORST. And friends, they're not totally wrong. Host Kelly Landry walks us through each one and you'll see, they're quite ridiculous. Take a look.
Seriously, I have to say y'all, as a lifelong, female narcoleptic, I'm offended AF by U-Go Girl's entire existence!! Is it just me? Is it??
I remember reading the X-Force comics when I was younger, in school no less, and thinking, "GREAT! Now everyone will think I'm an addict! AWESOME." -_- (Yes, some Narcoleptics are prescribed stimulants. No, we don't snort them. No, they aren't mf'n party drugs.) 🙄 Moving. On.
Thing is, I'm wondering, are these complete mess ups a product of the times when they were drawn or were they really that bad? No. Really. They were that bad, right?! PENNIES?!!!!! 💥 KABLAM! 💥 Unless you want to roll into a Walmart and park at a Coin-Star for an hour and shoot out some pennies until you have a couple hundred dollars, I seriously don't see the point. What were they going for here?
Please. Someone feel free to address this hot mess.
What do you think about the list that Top 6 put together? Are there any other superheroes that you've come across that just made you marvel in wonder at how they ever saw light of day? And please, guys, use your imaginations. Dig deep. Don't just say Aquaman. In fact, I'll find you and kick you in the shin if you say Aquaman. *glaring* JK. I'd NEVER do such a thing. Psh. *smiling sweetly* ⬇️ Share! Discuss! Debate! ✌🖖💜
