Something tells me the following lame supervillains aren’t going to be making an appearance on the big screen any time soon. From a racist, anthropomorphic egg to a HIV ridden vampire, join us as we read through some of the worst supervillains ever created.
10. The Condiment King
To ease us into this list is the utterly ridiculous Condiment King. This bizarre supervillain is part of the DC Universe, first appearing in Batman: The Animated Series. Condiment King aka Mitchell Mayo wields the power of ketchup and mustard in two giant guns. He can sometimes induce anaphylactic shock when he fires off his nut based sauces. Admittedly, DC did write this villain as comic relief, paying homage to the 1960s TV series Batman starring Adam West with its droll condiment related puns.
It’s later revealed that the Joker brainwashed comedian Buddy Standler into becoming the fearsome Condiment King.
Villain to the now infamous New Guardians, Snowflame gains his powers by smashing copious amounts of cocaine. Hailing from Columbia, this drug addled mobster worships the god of cocaine drawing on its effects to fuel his villainous mayhem. Upon snorting a rail of the white stuff, he gains superhuman strength, immunity to pain, quick reflexes and the ability to make people high upon touch.
He’s not so much a supervillain as he is a poor drug dependent soul that can’t get the help he needs.
Created in 1965 as an adversary to Wonder Woman, Eggfu is a horribly racist caricature that speaks with a phonetic Chinese accent. Compiling of almost every Asian racial stereotype, this giant communist egg whips his opponents with a long, well-groomed moustache.
Ahem. Yep. Let’s move right along shall we?
7. Captain Nazi
For decades comic book writers have used World War 2 as inspiration for their characters. The Nazis were often go-to adversaries for our do-good superheroes, especially so in the 40s and 50s.
Through genetic alteration by his scientist father, Captain Nazi is given superhuman strength and agility and is seen as the ultimate specimen to do Adolf Hitler’s bidding. He’s a tall, fair skinned, blonde, buff dude that gains strength from Nazi idealism. He can also huff a special gas that allows him to fly.
6. Penny Plunderer
Penny Plunderer also known as, Joe Coyne, is a DC Universe villain. Created in 1947, this green-pinstripe suited antihero is obsessed with pennies. Originally a newspaper salesman, Plunderer was fired when he was caught stealing pennies from the kitty. It was from there his penchant for the coins only grew more intense. In the comic ‘Penny Plunderers’ he captures Batman and Robin and places them in an over-sized penny shaped death-trap. Batman foils his plan by somehow making a radio out of coins to signal help.
