World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 6
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 6 features:
Doctor Rat, the King of Crime, dwelt in sewers beneath the streets of London, and between the covers of Cor!! (in the early 1970s) and Eagle (in which he was revived in the late 1980s);
Fuss Pot, unpleasable, bloomers-wearing, toffee-nosed moaner who debuted in Knockout and became a favourite of Whizzer and Chips;
Sourpuss, Catwoman-based nemesis of the hapless Birdman and Chicken in Krazy;
The Demon Dwarf, Doktor Gratz was a pint-sized Nazi scientist and ally of the evil Black Max, he was revived after the war to continue the battle against Britain in Lion.
