World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 13
Dare to gaze upon the most notorious villains, creeps, bullies, monsters, ghosts and ghouls to darken the pages of IPC’s comics of the 1970s and 1980s. On my Twitter pages I’m running a World Cup series of polls to determine who is the nastiest of them all, so pop over there to vote – and I’ll post a picture of each of them here on the blog to remind you of who’s who.
There are 64 baddies in total, divided at random into 16 groups of 4. The winner of each group progresses into Round 2, and I hope we’ll discover the Baddest of Bads sometime in the New Year!
Group 13 features:
Milly O’Naire, loaded, snobby bête noire of Penny Less in one of Jackpot’s most popular strips;
Soldier Sharp, treacherous, self-interested squaddie who would pander to the Nazis to save his own yellow hide, he featured in Valiant and then Battle;
Ivor Lott, poster boy for the entitled rich and tormenter of Tony Broke, he flashed his cash in the pages of Cor!! then Buster (where he later forged a frightful friendship with Milly O’Naire);
Mean Machine Angel, head-butting loon and most violent member of 2000AD’s Angel Gang, his aggression levels were controlled by an unstable dial on his forehead.
