4) SENOR DING-DONG

A mysterious man from south of the border of Springfield, the home of The Simpsons, he first appeared to help Marge fix a malfunctioning doorbell.  With his giant bell-helmet, this mysterious recurring hero certainly fits this week’s theme.  While not as well-known as fellow costumed Mexican Bumblebee Man, he is at least visible enough to have appeared in the Simpsons’ movie outing (though I think nearly everyone in their entire 20+ year canon made that list, as well.)

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. Honorable Mention: The Ringer.

    Years before Lady Beyonce implored the rest of the world, former NASA engineer turned criminal Anthony Davis decided to put a ring on it. Jealous of Kyle (Nightwing) Richmond, Davis created a suit of armor utilizing weaponized rings, and tried to rob Richmond but failed, losing several teeth in the process. After serving time, and having his teeth repaired, he was forcibly recruited by the Beetle who sent Davis after Spider-Man. He failed again and Spidey even re-broke his teeth.

    The Ringer was one of Scourge’s victims in the Bar With No Name, although he was secretly resurrected as a cyborg by AIM, and his wife later Leila took on the Ringer identity to seek revenge on Beetle on Spider-Man, as one of Spidey’s Lethal Foes.
