World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 9
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 9 features:
Doomlord, from Eagle, the hideous alien with a ring of power and the ability to change form to any person or beast … but was he truly evil, or acting in the greater interests of humankind?;
The Black Widow, from Misty, she was set on vengeance and controlled a vast army of hideous spiders;
Count Dracula, one of the classics, reimagined (and recently revived from the crypts) for Scream! ;
Billy Bunter, from the pages of Valiant, this nasty little character was heavyweight chump of Greyfriars, former Mayor of London and now – bizarrely – Foreign Secretary. Yaroo!
