With all respect to our friend Dave Fiore…
I must declare the voting closed, for “The WORST Superteam”.
And let me tell you…it was damn close. First of all, there was a tie for third place, between:
Jonathan Burns and his brain-dead team of Thor, Deadpool, Jubilee, USAgent, Morbius, and Marianne Rodgers…
And The Fortress Keeper’s Exploitation Team #1, composed of The Shroud, Ms. Marvel, Brother Voodoo, Elsa Bloodstone, Gene Simmons, and The Human Fly!
Now for second place…
Can you handle this?
Harvey Jerkwater’s “Galactus Day-Care Squad”, with members Gladiator, The Punisher, Howard The Duck, Man-Thing, Dracula, and Galactus…and oh how I wish you all could have seen his grid of how each character feels about the characters…a thing of beauty, it was…
But not such a thing of beauty as this:
P-Tor’s Daredevil and Black Bolt (plus one) insanely Gerberesque MTIO story that never happened! Bravo, P-Tor! You win the Golden Straitjacket!
Oh, it was a very, very close thing, folks. Very close. Too goddamn close. And the irony is…
Both the winner and the runner-up, those could be very excellent real and actually genuine comics that I would spend money on. So let’s give these dangerous lunatics, these enemies of civilization, a hand!
Wow. P-Tor, not least for coming in first in such a very tough field, you’ve earned what RAB hates: a prize. E-mail me your real-life mailing address, and the lousy thing will be winging its way to you…um, just as soon as I scare up roughly twenty-five bucks. Which could be a while!
Um, I mean…which probably won’t be very long!
And congratulations again: a brilliant conception.
All hail P-Tor!!!! Winner of the most dubious honour ever.
I officially declare the comments open for jealous remarks.
