Save the day? I think not! Useless comic book characters. (Every other Tuesday)

Information on characters found on comicvine.gamespot.com, various DC and Marvel Encyclopedias, and from Jon Morris’ Book,  The League Of Regrettable Superheroes.

Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to add more members to the roster of useless characters. Get ready to laugh and facepalm as we begin this ridiculous post.

  • Color Kid Real Name: Ulu Vakk  Gender: Male  Status: Good  Power: Can change the color of any object. Creator: DC First Appeared: Adventure Comics #342—-The Legionnaire Who Killed 1966

Color Kid is an alien from the planet Lupra who has one of the most useless powers imaginable. He was rejected from The Legion of Superheroes, and joined The Legion of Substitute Heroes. While his power does seem pretty worthless, it can come in handy in some situations. For example, The Green Lantern’s ring can’t pass through yellow objects, and Color Kid could change the object’s color. He could also distract colorblind enemies.

  • Walrus Real Name: Hubert Carpenter Status: Bad Powers: Proportionate strength, agility, and speed of a walrus. First Appeared: Defenders# 131 1984 Creator: Marvel

The Walrus belongs to the strange breed of bizarre villains in the Marvel universe. He got his powers from his uncle’s experiments, and started on a crime spree. Unfortunately for Hubert, his newfound powers were incredibly useless! Humans run faster than Walruses, so it actually reduced his abilities. He became teammates with the equally useless White Rabbit, and they formed the Terrible Two. Their crime spree didn’t last long, as they soon got the crap beaten out of them by Spider-Man and Leap-Frog. It’s implied that they were beaten between huge fits of laughter!

Another Strange SCP (Tuesdays)

Some readers  may find this disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised!

Information found on scp-wiki.net

Hello fellow researchers! It’s Tuesday, and the Foundation has opened its doors once again. Now, grab your Class S equipment, and let’s begin!

  • Poison Wood Foal SCP-805 Object Class: Euclid

Description: SCP-805 is an assortment of branches and roots twisted into the shape of a young horse, approximately 101.6 centimeters high. Its interior is completely hollow of any organs; however, the object is mobile, mimicking the movements and instincts of a typical young foal. It is drawn towards human presences, actively seeking contact with skin, and has reported as being ‘very friendly’ when approached. It does not require food or water and there has been  no growth recorded since containment in 20(blank). Scrapings of wood from its frame have revealed it to be of an unknown species related to the ‘poison-oak’ plant, Toxicodendron diversilobum.

Upon contact with SCP-805, human skin shows signs of irritation not unlike that caused by poison-oak. The skin turns red and begins to itch as small red bumps erupt from the flesh. No remedy prescribed for poison-oak will ease the itching or rash. Two to three days after the rash has appeared, the irritation will flare and spread rapidly until the entire surface of the skin is covered. Subjects have reported excruciating pain both internal and external, with skin beginning to change color between pale brown or green. Movement in the joints becomes stiff and increasingly more difficult. As the internal blood pressure rises, blood will be forced out various orifices of the subject, including their eyes and fingernails. Bone width increases, and muscle is absorbed into the widening bones which thicken rapidly, causing [DATA EXPUNGED] to the subject’s body like that of SCP-805 itself.

The transformation has been observed to take 3 to 8 hours, depending on how much bare skin was infected by SCP-805, each result ending with the subject [DATA EXPUNGED]. X-rays have showed them to be completely hollow inside. However, it is theorized that the subject may still be aware and conscious as, despite no mobility, pulse or breathing found post-transformation, the remains have been observed creaking and groaning as if attempting to move. They do not respond to tests with normal stimuli and most noises appear to occur when in the vicinity of SCP-805.

These corpses do not carry the infection of SCP-805 to other humans, but it is still recommended that they are handled with thick gloves to prevent splinters. Remains are observed for a time after transformation before being incinerated.

Addendum 865-01: SCP-805 was discovered in the (blank) countryside, with authorities alerting the Foundation after a series of [DATA EXPUNGED]. SCP-805 did not resist capture and containment, but resulted in the deaths of (blank) staff during this time. Its origin and age are unknown.

More Strange SCPS (Tuesdays)

Hello fellow scientists! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to go back to the foundation, and uncover some new objects. Now, put on your S-class protective equipment, and let’s begin!

All information found on scp-wiki.net

  • The Getaway Car SCP-462 Object Class: Euclid 

Description: SCP-462 is a 1968 Chevrolet El Camino in a state of serious disrepair, with several broken windows and severe rust damage. A single key is inserted into the ignition. To date, all attempts at removing the key have failed. If a human sits in the driver’s seat and turns the key as if to start the vehicle, they will instantaneously disappear. Around 42% of SCP-462’s drivers have been known to suddenly reappear without the vehicle at a distant location after a random period of time, ranging from 43 seconds to 7 months, near the spot that they have confirmed as being their chosen destination. These drivers rarely arrive at their destination safely; many have been observed falling from a considerable height after reappearing, while others have arrived while flying in the direction of their destination at various speeds, resulting in injuries that are sometimes fatal. Occasionally, test subjects will arrive in various states of dismemberment. In 35% of these cases, the test subject never reappears and cannot be located, even when fitted with a GPS transceiver. The remaining 23% of test subjects [DATA EXPUNGED].

 The subjects who survive SCP-462’s traveling process report that they are driving during the time they are gone, and express confusion regarding the experience and their abrupt re-appearence. These reports typically contradict the time between vanishing and reappearing, with most drivers insisting that they have been gone for a few minutes as opposed to the actual period of time their disappearance was observed.

The object first came to the Foundation’s attention on October 5th, 2(BLANK BLANK) when (BLANK) Marshall inadvertently used it to find his father, who was serving a life sentence at (BLANK BLANK) Penitentiary, (BLANK BLANK) km from the object’s original location. Questioning was carried out by Agent (BLANK), who was working undercover as one of the facility’s guards. SCP-462 was immediately located and moved to Site (BLANK) without incident.

  • Hard-to-Destroy Reptile SCP-682 Object Class : Keter (This happens to be one of my favorite SCPS!) (BTW please make this into a Horror movie!)

Description: SCP-682 is a large, vaguely reptile-like creature of unknown origin. It appears to be extremely intelligent, and was observed to engage in complex communication with SCP-079 during their limited time of exposure. SCP-682 appears to have a hatred of all life, which has been expressed in several interviews during containment. (One of these will be shown below.)

SCP-682 has always been observed to have extremely high strength, speed, and reflexes, though exact levels vary with its form. SCP-682’s  physical body grows and changes very quickly, growing or decreasing in size as it consumes or sheds material. SCP-682 gains energy from anything it ingests, organic or inorganic. Digestion seems to be aided by a set of filtering gills inside of SCP-682’s nostrils, which are able to remove usable matter from any liquid solution, enabling it to constantly regenerate from the acid it is contained in. SCP-682’s regenerative capabilities and resilience are staggering, and SCp-682 has been seen moving and speaking with its body 87% destroyed or rotted.

In case of containment breach, SCP-682 is to be tracked and re-captured by all available Mobile Task Forces, and no teams with fewer than seven (7) members are cleared to engage it. To date (BLANK BLANK BLANK), attempted breaches have numbered at seventeen (17), while successful breaches have it numbered at six (6).

Addendum 682-B: Portion of recorded transcript of (BLANK).
