4) THE BOUNCER


The Bouncer is one of those wonderfully goofy heroes, in name and nature, that I wish more people would embrace in the modern era.  He’s also a statue; specifically a statue of Antaeus, the half-giant son of Poseidon and Gaia from Greek myth.  When possessed by the spirit of his godly self, The Bounder leaps into action.

In a skirt.

Because that’s what you did in 1944, and you LIKED it!

About Author

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.

  1. I was so hoping to see DC’s Vext on this list. I didn’t read it when it first because I was in a super serious mood in high school but I found and read it last year. Really fun!
