Close but no cigar. The Golden Age Green Lantern's power ring couldn't affect wood. The Silver Age Green Lantern's power ring couldn't affect anything colored yellow due to an impurity of some sort in the Oan power cell. The third Green Lantern introduced in the '90s didn't have the restriction against yellow.

The Green Hornet was not a super powered superhero. He was more of a gadget using crime buster. His partner was the martial arts expert Kato. I don't know why anyone would have anything against the Green Hornet. He was one of the most popular characters of his era and was featured in radio serials, comic books, movie serials, a one season television series from '66-'67 (Kato was played by Bruce Lee, Van Williams was GH and both appeared in a crossover episode of the "Batman" show), and a novel. He even had an Aurora model kit.

Not sure of his name, but there was a member of the Green Lantern Corps that really erked me, in fact several of them did.

He was a bouncing ball species of Green Lantern.

Perhaps the local talent could develop at least one graphic adventure where the resident man in tights does something useful for humanity, or tinfoilhatkind.

Weak. TC stated it perfectly, SO maintains this place for YOU, and what does he get? Insulted. People never cease to amaze me. That's fine if that's you view, but you don't have to come and post it here. Really. That was low.

And no one should be saying that SO "doesn't do anything" because he does, he does a lot. Just because we don't see every move, doesn't mean that actions aren't taken.

As far as the worst superhero, come on guys, Captain Underpants?

Right up there alongside the worst of the worst, IMHO.

I'd have to say the worst superhero was Jack of All Trades on the Avengers.

From a Saturday night live skit, in the 70's

There was a superhero cocktail party..

When all the sudden ANT MAN (garrett Morris) comes through the door..

All the BUffed up guys asked.."so what is your power?"

"I can shrink to the size of an ant, and maintain the strength of a man!"

WOW, a whole MAN, they chuckled...and worked their way back to the other side of the room.

I do that rubbing my eyes real hard in the morning.

Dazzlers A Fox Dontcha Know....Her Ablilties are more Defined here
Dazzler is a mutant who possesses the ability to convert sound into light. Her powers encompass the entire light spectrum. While the Dazzler can absorb all forms of external sound, she prefers to use music with its rhythmic patterns. These light projections are very versatile, ranging from the typical lightshow, to catatonic strobe flashes, to pin-point laser beams, to protective force fields. She can also use light energy to propel herself through the air, allowing her to fly. Her potential to convert sound into light is infinite, with the one restriction being that she cannot, for unknown reasons, use her own voice to create light.

Her body, especially her eyes, protects itself against any injury that would be caused by either external or self-generated light sources. Loud noises also have no effect due to her ability to absorb them. Since the events of Dazzler: The Movie, Alison’s body can store light energy for future discharge. Dazzler is also capable of redirecting absorbed or stored sound energy back as pure concussive force.

My Vote: Blue Streak
little is known of what the Blue Streak did before he was introduced by Nick Fury as part of a team of Super agents. Fury tested both Captain America and the falcon with the Super agents and he wanted Cap to lead the team.In his first appearance Blue Streak wore a silver costume with a blue lightning bolt down the side of his pants and rocket powered roller skates. Blue Streak was killed when he hitched a lift with a driver who turned out to be Scourge who promptly shot him dead

Exactly Dove (peace) Was teamed with Hawk (war) to keep him under control when Doved died long ago Hawk turned into Monarch an Evil Dictator


Don Hall was the quieter more scholarly of two brothers. He and his brother, Hank pursued a mob boss that tried to kill their father, a judge . The two became trapped in a locked room and Don wished for the power they would need to free themselves. A voice boomed out that it would give the boys that power as long as they used it to fight injustice. By saying the words "hawk" and "dove", the two transformed into superheroes with the same names. After justice was served they changed back. As Dove, Don Hall always advocated non-violent solutions. The two saved their father, who in turn denounced the boys as lawless vigilantes

Over the years the pair had many adventures, eventualy joining the Teen Titans. For a time, Hank and Don retired to concentrate on education. The duo returned to action to take part in the Crisis on Infinite Earths. They fought alongside the Titans to free Earth-4 and joined the massive army of heroes that journeyed back to the Dawn of Time. After reality was reformed, Hawk and Dove were part of the battle against the Anti-Monitor's Shadow Demons. While helping people evacuate, Dove noticed a child all alone. Over protests from Hawk, he went to rescue the child. No sooner had he gotten the child down from a window sill then he was attacked from behind by a Shadow Demon. Dove was instantly vaporized.

Some time later, Dawn Grainger became the new Dove. During the War of the Gods, Don Hall was revived as an undead zombie by Circe. He attacked his successor but eventually went back to the afterlife. Recently he was revived again along with other fallen Titans thanks to a plot by the current Brother Blood.

Nexus, that would be "Razorback" the CB radio craze of the 70's inspired superhero.

My worst would be Japan's Speedracer (I know he's a cartoon), ok comics worst superhero... X-Mens Jubilee or Dazler. I mean light power?

Meteor Man? It was a pretty crappy film, so he gets my vote.

"Matter Eater Lad" - Can't stop crying with laughter at that one! Please tell me he isn't real!

posted on Feb, 9 2006 @ 04:08 PM
Nope, sorry to inform you that the Great Matter Eater Lad was a Leagion of Super-Heros.
Matter Eater Lad

Matter-Eater Lad can eat any substance in any amount at super-speed (AD 344, AD 362 Meet the Legionnaires). To his Bismollian appetite ray-guns taste "good" (AD 303), iron chains are "like chocolate cake" (AD 360), prison-robot fingers are "just as tasty" as ladyfingers (AD 351) and polymeric fibers "taste like taffy" (AD 363). Certain space-jewels, however, while edible are not as favorable to the Bismollian palate and are an "acquired" delicacy (AD 338).

Rocket Robin hood...Cheesey, cheesey, cheeeeessseyyyyy.
I'm sure there's worse...And the Green Arrow was terrible.. Arrows? Big deal.
"As a young boy he was struck by a radio active arrow, and thus became, THE GREEN ARROW!"

There's no contest to the worst superhero ever.

Fathers 4 Justice "Batman"

Of course 8-ball guy is a close runner-up

No contest there...Middle aged man, back problems and beer gut..How I aspire to be him!
HOWEVER, Batman, the REAL Batman is the #. Not the faggot from the sixties, who used to break out into dance with his young male partner..I mean the real, dark, Black Knight comic book hero.
And Batman can't be counted anyways, he's a vigilanty, not a hero.

Ever play that spider man game for the original Play Station? Remember that level, under the water in that long tunnel, and if you did a certain cheat you could race that "Mariner" or something guy...You could also unlock his profile..Gayest super hero I've ever seen or read about, hands down. Aside from Rocket Robin Hood.
Do you understand how cheesey it was? They flew around space with NO protection what so ever..They'd just zip along in jet packs and what have you, slining arrows, yet possesing the technology for jet packs..
If you want to see it sometime, I'm sure they still put it on that Teletoon channel late nights...Caught it a few times last year.

Blue Beatle for DC comics, the name is dumb as Green Lantern and his comics sell for 10p in comic shops.
