These flowers are incapable of speech, however they will laugh and smile at people passing by. If a person should laugh at the Ninmenju, it will laugh back, and occasionally fall off of the tree.

Characters found on comicvine.gamespot.com, various DC and Marvel encyclopedias, and Jon Morris’ book, The League of Regrettable Heroes

  • Strong Guy Real Name: Guido Carosella Status: Good First Appearance: The New Mutants #29 1985 Company: Marvel Powers: Incredible Superhuman Strength and Kinetic Energy Absorption

Guido got his superpowers when he was struck by a bus as a kid. Upon impact, Guido absorbed the buses energy. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to release it, which caused his body to swell up and caused his muscles to become disproportionate. To make thing s worse, Strong Guy also suffers from a heart problem which can cause his heart to give out if too much strain is put upon it.

  • Slug Real Name: Ulysses X. Lugman Status: Evil First Appeared: Captain America #324 1986 Powers: Incredibly Rich, High Intellect

Little is known about this incredibly weird villain. All we know is that he’s incredibly fat and that he is a drug lord. Unlike the equally fat Blob, the Slug can’t move and doesn’t have any other powers than his brain and wealth. What a lardass!

Asher’s Art Gallery (Mondays)

  • Fox Hollow by Larry Carlson 2015: It’s time to get this post started with an incredibly trippy piece. It’s of course, created by the amazing, Larry Carlson. The work takes place outside, and has a mystic vibe to it. The sky is covered in strange spiral clouds and magenta mountains. There’s also 2 cute foxes sitting under the shadow of a tree. The tree, itself, is covered in a black, sparkling shroud that reminds me of a starry night sky. It’s a very atmospheric work, and I hope that you enjoy it.

LARRY CARLSON, Fox Hollow, 2015.
