Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! It’s time to crack open the comic vault, and look at the weirdest characters ever created. Now, grab your favorite issue, and let’s begin!
- Sixpack Real Name: Sidney Speck First Appearance: Hitman #9 December 1996 Created by: DC Status: Hero and Delusional Drunk Powers: Expert in unarmed combat and weapons handling; incredibly high alcohol tolerance.
Sixpack is one of DC’s strangest superheroes. He once was the leader of Section Eight, a superhero team with equally strange powers. His history is hard to figure out, and due to the heavy consumption of alcohol he can’t remember anything from his past. Armed with his trusty broken bottle, Sixpack is always ready to start a fight. That is, if Cirrhosis doesn’t catch up with him first! *By the way, I strongly recommend reading Section Eight, it’s one hell of a journey!
- Madcap Real Name:N/A First Appearance: Captain America #307 July 1985 Creator: Marvel Status: Villain and prankster Powers: Incredible self-healing ability, able to survive almost any injury; causes others to lose inhibitions with embarrassing and sometimes lethal consequences.
Madcap was originally a normal man, and devoted Christian, until a horrible bus accident rendered him insane. The bus collided with a truck carrying experimental nerve gas, killing everyone on board but Madcap. He developed the ability to heal from any injury, and used this to go on a crime spree. He has butted heads with many superheroes including Wolverine and Nomad.
