Even More Messed Up Comic Book Characters (Every Tuesday for October)

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 messed up characters. Now, grab your favorite Graphic Novel, and let’s begin!

  • Black Hand Real Name: William Hand Status: Misanthrope First appeared: Green Lantern#29 (June 1, 1964 DC Comics) Powers/Abilities: Using the black power ring, William can reanimate the dead, and steal energy by killing his victims and eviscerating their hearts

William was raised in a mortuary, and became disturbingly fascinated with the dead bodies. His interest in the dead became a major problem with his family. He soon was being stalked by the Red Lantern known as Atrocitus. This eventually lead Hand to insanity, and he brutally murdered his family before taking his own life. Instead of dying, he became reanimated as a Black Lantern. He became a major thorn in Hal Jordan’s side, and even killed his father in cold blood. After being reborn for this fourth time, he finally meets his permanent end at the hands of the Source Wall.

  • Johnny Sorrow Real Name: N/A Status: Super Villain First Appeared: Secret Origins of Super Villains #1 (December 1, 1999 DC Comics) Powers/Abilities: His own face kills anyone who looks at it (he isn’t immune to this), teleportation, limited intangibility, mask reformation, communication through dimensions, magic manipulation, levitation

Johnny Sorrow was originally a silent movie actor who wanted to move to talkies. He stole a special Subspace Prototype, which made his body intangible. He used this to commit crimes. He was easily caught by the “Dream Lord”, Sand. He transported Sorrow into a horrific dimension known as the Subtile Realms. He then met the dastardly King of Tears, who made him his servant. Upon returning to Earth, Sorrow found out that his face had been horribly disfigured. The sight of his visage was so disturbing, that whoever looked at it would die of shock. He continues his life of crime, and is sent back to the Subtile Realms after the King of Tears dies.

 

 

  • Emplate Real Name: Marius St. Croix Status: Terrorist First Appeared: Generation X #1 (November 1994 Marvel Comics) Unusual Features: Looks like a dry emaciated corpse with purple artery-like veins running down his body. He also has blood red pupils and gray skin. Powers/Abilities: Feeds on the bone marrow of mutants to remain on this physical plane (this cancels out their powers and gives them their abilities), extreme durability, extraordinary tracking abilities, can transform others into abominations like himself, limited invisibility

Marius was born into a very rich family, and lived quite a lavish childhood. This all changed, however, when he turned into a teenager. He was overwhelmed with hunger, and accidentally killed his mother. He was then exiled from his family, and moved towards the study of dark magic. He was eventually found by his sisters, and banished into a different dimension. Inside the dimension, Emplate learns about his powers and his major weakness. He must live aided by a giant purple respirator. If he doesn’t continue to consume mutant’s bone marrow, he will be pulled into a dimension of unspeakable torture. (Geez, what a life!)

Asher’s Film Reviews (Every 2 Months)

Hello fellow movie lovers, and welcome to this special post! Every two months, I will be reviewing a movie.  I hope you guys will enjoy this post. Now, let’s get started!

The Trip by Michael Winterbottom Starring: Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (Not Rated) Genre: Comedy, Drama (2010) 1hr 51min 

The Trip is a hilarious film that stars Steve Coogan of Alan Patridge fame, and his best friend, Rob Brydon. The movie is about a food trip that the two actors take through northern England. They make various stops at different points in the film, and the acting is almost all improvised. Coogan and Brydon have amazing chemistry with one another, and it’s an fantastic sight to behold. Brydon is amazing at impressions, and we get the treat of listening to them throughout the film. I especially enjoy Rob’s impression of Michael Caine, as it’s completely spot on. The entire movie is one giant laugh riot that I highly recommend to anybody. The food looks incredibly tasty, and is pure eye candy. My final rating for this movie is a 9/10.
