World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 16

World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 16

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 16 features:

Greedy Greg, this tubby bully was only ever a street corner away from trying to nab Sweet Tooth’s latest bag of treats (but at least he still had a full set of teeth);

Professor Krait, shadowy criminal mastermind who could turn himself into a half-man, half-reptile, from Lion’s The Shadow of the Snake;

Bradley, the 2000AD version of Sweeny Toddler;

Judge Dredd, a controversial candidate perhaps, but as brutal upholder of the Law in a society in which democracy is dead, is Joe Dredd the biggest bad of them all?

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