4) EL TORO ROJO, THE RED BULL


I don’t need to elaboraite much; everyone knows the iconic energy drink that gives you wings and results in an endless parade of completely inexplicable commercials.  As the favorite beverage of Barney Stinson, it is reputed to offset the effects of alcohol, an assessment that seems to have no basis in fact.  Also having no basis in fact is the existence of the Deviants, a tribe from lost Lemuria that opposes the equally legendary Eternals in the Marvel Universe, from which our crimson friend originates.  El Toro Rojo also spent some time as a wrestler, feuding with a masked Eternal named El Vampiro before being laid low by Thor.

Because nothing says “COMICS!” like a luchador feud being settled by the Norse god of thunder…

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.
