6) SKATEMAN


Okay, forget there are no bad characters…

Skateman is the worst.

But at least he looks pretty cool, sometimes.  And the creators tried, albeit unsuccessfully, to say something about violence, about the treatment of Vietnam veterans and about race relations in his sole published, utterly terrible, worst-comic-book-in-the-world adventure.

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.
