No matter how hard we try, we all can’t be Batman. The same holds true for other superheroes. Despite the best intentions of the writers and creators, not all of them can be billionaire playboys with a mansion, batplane, and bat-gadgets. Some have to settle for less. What’s worse is that some superheroes were born (for lack of a better term) with a really dumb backstory. They must overcome the tragedy of poorly envisioned powers and really lame motives. Luckily for us, many of these lame-duck superheroes have died or become so unpopular we’ll never see them again. Here are ten of the worst superheroes ever written.
9 Squirrel Girl -- Marvel Comics
8 The Red Bee -- DC Comics
7 Vibe -- DC Comics
6 The Almighty Dollar -- Marvel Comics
5 Extrano -- DC Comics
4 Night Thrasher -- Marvel Comics
3 Skateman -- Pacific Comics
2 Arm-Fall-Off Boy -- DC Comics
1 Codpiece -- Vertigo Comics
And you thought Extrano was a bad idea. Codpiece was created by someone who probably had a lot of issues with women, but no one knows who because no one has the balls to stand up and take credit for this phallic masterpiece. Codpiece was a normal dude with a few “insecurities” about his height (yeah, lets go with that) and how he was treated by women. So, to get his revenge, Codpiece devised and built the most extreme pair of cannon-pants ever concocted and went out to be a bad dude. He eventually died at the hands of Coagula – a transsexual prostitute superhero that probably should have made this list. Codpiece might be the most stunningly stupid idea ever devised by a comic book writer. Worse, they went and made toys of this character and sold them to children. There are only about twenty offensive things going on with this dude.
