Obscure And Awesome Comic Book Characters (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow Comic Book Fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating characters. Now, let’s begin!

  • Praxis Real Name: Jason Praxis Status: Former Detective turned Hero Ht: 6’7” Wt: 166 lbs Creator: DC First Appeared: The Spectre (Vol. 2) #24 February 1989 Hair Color: Blond  Eye Color: Blue Powers/Abilities: Various Psionic Powers including; Psionic Shields, Mind-reading, Mind-control, Telepathy, Mind-blasts, Telekinesis, Illusion-casting, and camouflage. Good detective 

Praxis was a detective who got his powers from incredibly bizarre circumstances. During one case, involving a serial killer, Praxis’ niece was killed by the psychopath, and escaped using his powers. Praxis then teamed up with the Spectre to take down the villain, and in a strange turn of events, the killer died possessing Praxis’ body. The possession left him with incredible telepathic and telekinetic powers, which he used to fight crime. He soon joined a team of heroes known as the Conglomerate, which unfortunately didn’t last. He now is semi-retired, but continues to help out when duty calls.

  • Lobo Real Name: Lobo Status: Intergalactic Bounty Hunter Ht: 5’11” Wt: 227 lbs (Although it fluctuates depending on what series he’s in)  First Appeared: Omega Men (Vol. 1) #3 June 1st, 1983 Creator: DC  Hair Color: Black with glowing-blue highlights Eye Color: Red Powers/ Abilities: Incredible healing factor which makes him neigh impossible to kill, super strength, incredible stamina and durability, highly advanced senses, genius-level intellect, huge arsenal of weapons, mono wheel for ground transportation, custom-built spacecraft 

Lobo is one of my absolute favorite comic book characters of all time. His story and adventures are absolutely insane, and some even give Deadpool a run for his money! Lobo was the “last” person of the Czarian race, and led to the planet’s destruction. We later learn that the only other survivor was his 4th grade teacher, but that’s a story for another time! His incredible variety of super powers combined with his razor-sharp wit make him a insanely deadly opponent. He roams the galaxy as an intergalactic bounty hunter that always gets the job done in the most brutal fashion possible. His hits include; Santa, numerous elves, 99.9% of Czaria’s population, Zatara, and a fish god.  While not necessarily evil, Lobo tends to be in the neutral affiliation, doing things his way, and not worrying about the consequences. He has definitely earned his title of “Deadliest Assassin in the Universe” , and is guaranteed to leave a trail of bodies in his wake.

More Incredible Banned Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more banned cards. Now, Let’s Duel!

  • Number 16: Shock Master Type: Fairy/XYZ/Effect Attribute: Light Rank: 4 Appearance: An awesome pink machine with electricity shooting out of each side. ATK/ 2300 DEF/ 1600 Effect: Requires 3 Level 4 monsters: Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card to declare 1 card type (Monster, Spell, or Trap); that type of card (if Spell or Trap) cannot be activated, or (if Monster) cannot activate its effects, until the end of your opponent’s next turn.

This card is literally your opponent’s worst nightmare. With the amount of cards out today that modulate your monster’s levels, summoning this thing is very easy. Its effect literally gives you a free Jinzo, Horus, or Skill drain for 1 to 2 turns, and you can use that time to build up your field for a win. I honestly would find it extremely difficult to remove this card from the Banlist anytime soon.

  • Makyura The Destructor Type: Warrior/Effect Attribute: Dark Appearance: A vicious-looking millennium warrior with a purple body and 2 ultra sharp clawed hands. ATK/ 1600 DEF/ 1200 Effect: During the turn this card was sent to the Graveyard, you can activate Trap Cards from your hand.

This is one of the oldest cards on the Banlist, and I doubt that it will ever be playable. The ability to activate Trap Cards from your hand can easily turn the tide of battle in your favor. It also doesn’t specify how it needs to be sent to the Graveyard, so you could easily use a card like Cost Down to use its effect on your turn.

Chip discovered his powers at a young age, and unfortunately developed a second personality as well. This other persona was a benevolent force that drove the kid nearly into insanity. His powers were suppressed through medical treatment, and didn’t emerge again until a stressful incident in college. This time, his evil persona took over, and he started to rampage through the campus. He was eventually severely beaten by an unstable Spider-Man.

Even More TV Tropes

Hello fellow media lovers! It’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating tropes. Now, let’s begin!

  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: This is an extremely popular trope that’s used in numerous forms of media. The trope occurs when a chef or wannabe chef tries to combine ingredients that should NEVER go together. The result usually involves the consumer gagging, vomiting, or fainting. Some examples of this include; Soma’s devious combination of squid tentacles and peanut butter from Shokugeki no Soma. Soma is an amazing cook in the anime, with many of his dishes causing consumers to literally be in ecstasy. However, this dish causes the consumers to feel violated, and Soma brings this dish out when he wants to screw with people. In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, cooking is a major part of the game. It not only is used to recover health, but some foods can even protect you from the harsh temperatures. Then, there’s the dubious food, a disgusting concoction that can be created if Link combines bugs and monster parts together. The result is a censored mix of disgustingness that only recovers one heart.

  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: You’re an all around good character in a video game, and then you’re given a mission that completely brakes your moral compass. Some examples of this include; Scribblenauts, where you can use a baby with steak attached to it to attract lions. In the incredibly fun and challenging Oregon Trail, your party goes through hell to get to Oregon. Death is extremely common, dysentary happens often, colds can be lethal, and it’s almost impossible to get to Oregon with the full crew.

My Favorite Stan Lee Characters

Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s time for part 2 of my Stan Lee tribute. Being a huge comic book fan, I have loved many of his creations throughout the years. This post will be on my favorite of his characters. Now, let’s dive into Stan Lee’s amazing creations!

  • Juggernaut Real Name: Cain Marko Status: Villain Ht: 6’10 Wt: 900 lbs First Appeared: The X-Men #12- The Origin of Professor X (July 1st, 1965) Creators: Stan Lee and Jack Kirby Powers/Abilities: Extraordinary Superhuman strength, Force field, Invulnerability, Superhuman Speed, Telepathy-blocking helmet 

Cain was the bullying stepbrother of Professor X. In his childhood, Cain was always the second favorite child, with his stepdad favoring his own son rather than him. Then, one unfortunate day, Cain set fire to his stepdad’s lab, and he died saving the boy. Many years later, Charles and Cain were drafted into the military, and it was there when he got his powers. After deserting his troops, he stumbled upon a cave, where he found a mystic gem. The gem gave him incredible strength, stamina, and protection, as well as causing a cave in which seemingly killed him. He escaped years later, with a furious temper, and revenge on his mind. He became a constant enemy of the X-Men, and has nearly defeated them on many occasions.

  • Black Panther Real Name: T’Challa Status: King of Wakanda and Hero First Appeared: Fantastic Four #52- Introducing the Sensational Black Panther (July 1st, 1966) Creators: Stan Lee and Jack Kirby Powers/Abilities: Genius-like Intellect, Vibranium suit, Master of multiple martial arts, Superhuman agility, Enhanced senses, Weapons expert, Energy daggers, Anti-metal claws, Energy shield, Invisibility, Multilingual, Superhuman strength, Acute healing factor, Exceptionally Durable, Super speed, Superhuman Stamina

T’Challa was a Wakandan prince whose father was a superpowered monarch known as the Black Panther. The nation of Wakanda is technologically advanced due to the discovery of a mineral called Vibranium. T’Challa’s father used this mineral to empower the society, and tried to keep it under wraps from the rest of the world. Unfortunately, the villainous scientist, Ulysses S. Klaw, broke into Wakanda, and killed the prince’s father. Thinking fast, T’Challa turned Klaw’s sound based weapon against him, destroying his right hand in the process. With no one to rule Wakanda, T’Challa performed the sacred ritual into become Wakanda’s new king. Upon claiming the throne, the prince was given the Heart-shaped Herb, an incredibly powerful item that gives the user significantly enhanced physical capabilities. The Fantastic Four visited Wakanda, and were quickly defeated by T’Challa. The king then explained that he was testing the Superhero team to see if they were capable of taking down Klaw. The team became quick friends with T’Challa, and still team up with him on many missions. He also made friends with Captain America, and helped him take down an imposter. Shortly after, T’Challa joined the Avengers, and became a very powerful team member, while continuing to rule over Wakanda. I highly recommend watching Black Panther to get some more information on this awesome and unique superhero.
