Anyone here a fan of these Steve Gerber-created super-loonies besides me?
I think Dr.Angst, Tillie the Hun, Sitting Bullseye, The Spanker, and The Black Hole deserve better than to rot in Marvel super-villain limbo. I would love to see them battle the Great Lakes Avengers (or whatever they're calling themselves this week) or Deadpool's Mercs For Money. A lot of wasted potential with the Band of the Bland.
I would make them more loonier than before. I would have the Spanker sing parodies of 70s' pop hits while chasing after people (like say, a parody of Cher's Dark Lady : 'Dirk Luddy did his thing & bit the Randalls one by one!'). Tillie the Hun I would put back in her old valkyrie outfit (the outfit she had in She-Hulk was okay but I prefer her original look) and say she was a valkyrie sent to Earth by Odin to learn humility.
Plain and simple,I would love to see them in a modern Marvel story.
I agree! Black Hole, particularly, while he has an 'achilles heel' of sorts, is actually quite powerful.
