War, it ain’t nothing, but a heartbreaker!
Friend only to the undertaker!
Ooooh, war, it’s an enemy to all mankind!

Welcome to Ten Things!

Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’ and Edwin Starr, Presents:

TEN SUPERS WHO KNOW IT’S WORTH ABSOLUTELY NOTHIN’ (SAY IT AGAIN!)

10) PORTUGUESE MAN-O-WAR

Portuguese Man-O-War
The world of The Tick is chock full of heroes who have… unusual gimmicks.  Arthur is a moth, Man-Eating Cow is a man-eating Cow, and Portuguese Man-O-War is patterned after the deadly jellyfish.  With a blast power for his “sting”, and a particularly memorable blobby cowl, he’s an important part of The Tick’s still-unnnamed-after-YEARS super team of The City.

Matthew Peterson

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    My personal favorites: Based solely on looks: War Eagle. Based on people behaving badly in the internet: Flame War.
