World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 4
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 4 – possibly, and literally, the Group of Death – features:
Black Max, vampiric WWII Nazi pilot, owner of a squadron of giant bats, who appeared first in Thunder and then Lion;
Rico, brother of Judge Dredd and once Mega City One’s top Judge before corruption turned him rotten;
The Mekon, dome-bonced alien despot and arch-enemy of Eagle’s Dan Dare;
Judge Death, ruler of Deadworld, the alternate-dimension version of Mega City One, and bringer of deathly justice to all who commit the crime of life.
