Marvel: Madam McEvil's Terrible Trio (enemies of Daredevil) SEASON TWO FINALE!
~~This is the last episode of season 2! Thanks for listening!~~ Why not name your budding team of criminals after a fast food franchise? Madam McEvil was a techno monk martial artist who could move things with her mind, so she could probably name it whatever she wanted. Together with Angar the Screamer, living LSD factory, Ramrod...a guy who rams into things, and the Dark Messiah, a street-performer-turned-cult-leader, they...were not scary at all and were defeated almost immediately. Check out the (not-so-)terrible trio at https://villains.lol/madam-mcevil/
DC Comics: Prime Minister Blizzard (enemy of Wonder Woman)
If you take anything away from this episode, please know just how much Wonder Woman, one of DC's flagship characters, loooooooooves global warming. Want to see more? https://villains.lol/prime-minister-blizzard/
Archie Comics: Cat Girl and Kree-Nal, Sea Circe from Space (enemies of Jaguar)
"Kree-Nal, Sea Circe from Space" might be somehow the most self-evident and yet most confusing name we've ever talked about on this podcast. Cat Girl is neither a cat nor a girl. They're both enemies of the Jaguar, a man with powers completely unrelated to a Jaguar who's not an actual jaguar but also sometimes is. It's a weird one. Ralph Hardy being, apparenly, irresistible and Christopher Reeve being an amazing actor: https://villains.lol/cat-girl-and-kree-nal/
DC Comics: Skyrocket (enemy of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman)
With little more than several fireworks strapped to his body and a whole lot of confidence, Skyrocket - the man who uses fireworks to do supercrime - is making it work. Check out skyrocket and that snitch, Riddler at https://villains.lol/skyrocket/
America's Best Comics: The Puzzler (enemy of the Black Terror)
The Puzzler's greatest nemesis wasn't the superpowered pharmacist who dresses like Superman if Superman was really into wearing a ton of leather. It was the Puzzler's weak ankles. Check out the Puzzler and the Terror Twins: https://villains.lol/the-puzzler/
Twice a week, join the Weisers (creators of "Myths and Legends" and "Fictional") as they take a look at all the wonderful, ridiculous characters from comic book history.
Why should Joker, Thanos, Catwoman, and Magneto get all the love? Why not Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man, Uglyman, Kiteman, Asbestos Lady, and Condiment King? And yes, those are real characters.
Originally a segment on chart-topping podcast Fictional, Best of the Worst is making household names out of the world's worst heroes and villains...just not for the reasons they'd want.
