Axel-In-Charge: Unmasking the "Totally Awesome Hulk"
TOP FIVE WEEK CONTINUES (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far)!
Today, we’ll explore the top five comic book characters with the word “mister” in their names.
Mister Freeze may be the greatest example of how a cartoon version of a character can be so much better than the comic book version of said character, as the Bruce Timm/Paul Dini take on Mister Freeze in the Batman animated series was just utterly brilliant, and has since been adopted into the comics.
Mister Zsasz is one of the greatest villains created in the past twenty years, as Alan Grant came up with a brilliant “niche” (pun intended) for Zsasz – he is a murderer who cuts a notch into his body with every person he kills.
The original Mister Terrific, Terry Sloane, was an interesting character.
I have a real soft spot for Mister Nebula, Giffen and DeMatteis’ Galactus parody…
Mister Terrific (Michael Holt)
The current Mister Terrific is one of the best new superheroes developed in the past decade or so. Yet another thing we can thank John Ostrander for!
5. Mister A
This is one of Steve Ditko’s more underappreciated characters (so much so that I forgot about him initially!).
4. Mister Mind
It’s a worm who is a supervillain!
That is awesome!
3. Mister Mxyzptlk
Mxy has been a fun thorn in Superman’s side for decades now!
2. Mister Miracle
I really hope Scott Free makes it out of the Death of the New Gods okay!
1. Mister Fantastic
One of the cornerstones of the Marvel Universe.
