The joy and the curse of the brilliant cartoon ‘The Venture Brothers’ is in its use of iconic characters to tell stories that are nothing like you’ve seen before. That’s where things start to get really weird… Welcome to Ten Things!
Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’ and The Guild Of Calamitous Intent, Presents:
TEN VENTURE BROTHERS PARODY VILLAINS!
10) HERR TRIGGER
A one-shot antagonist assigned by the Office of Secret Intelligence, his name is the entire selling point here. Herr Trigger, (whose real last name translates as “triggerman”) is sent on the unenviable and eventually fatal quest to kill Brock Samson. Though he brings impressive armaments, including a bazooka, to finish the job, he makes the mistake of engaging in a running car/plane/motorcycle chase with Samson and is crushed to death by debris from a plane he himself shot down.
But, man, what a great name!
