World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 15

World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 15

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 15 features:

Elton Blake, this highly-strung actor was hired to play Roy Race in a documentary drama, but when he thought Roy got him fired he turned nasty, first trying to run him down with a bike, then shooting the Melchester star;

Judge Fire, from Deathworld he came, dispensing justice on the living with a trident of ghastly flame;

Lolly Pop, miserly businessman with no end of tightly-run enterprises, but a poor father to long-suffering Archie in Shiver and Shake and then Whoopee!;

Call Me Kenneth, crazed giant mek who led the War of the Robots against Judge Dredd in the Lawman of the Future’s first major saga in 2000AD.

Who's the most despicable? Go to @GNFARcomics on Twitter and you decide! #WorldCupOfBaddies
