ITT: Insanely obscure characters that you're surprised aren't more popular.

pic related. See that bitch? That's fucking HEADHUNTER. Bitch wears old fashioned shaving razors on her fingers and likes to drug people and then stick their heads through a hole in a wall so it looks like severed heads mounted on her wall. She doesn't even kill them, she just thinks it looks cool or whatever. She's also pale as fuck and so stylish it's retarded. She had like one featured story ever (during Byrne's Namor run) and then a cameo years later and has never been seen since.

Byrne has a long running tradition of pitting very strong superheroes against really weak villains. His Superman run had a bunch of one-trick pony villains which were little but a speed bump for Supes.

Ultimate obscure characters right here. Blown the fuck away that these never became popular on /co/.

Dr. Deth with Kip and Muffy.

The story of a little boy and his two buxom young adult women companions who wonder a post-apocalyptic wasteland all alone with no rules, no authorities, and no one to tell them no, free to do whatever they like and act on all their desires and impulses with no regard for what civilization thinks or considers "taboo".

They drive around and murder uggos and land whales unfit for /s- uh... survival... yeah.

They later recruit a toddler boy... purely by coincidence of course. The series was obviously 100% innocent and nothing impure was ever implied or even intended.

<_<

Basically the be-all-end-all of /ss/ bait. And yet /co/ would rather obsess over Bikini Cowboy or whatever.

150 KB, 385x735
Here's a REALLY obvious waifu bait character that seems like they should be more popular.

Cloud was a literal cloud of space gas that was somehow alive and could make itself look human. She was butt fucking naked and was only covered by gas trails over her tits/ass/crotch. She joined the Defenders during the later years of the original series when Marvel was doing a total overhaul on the original roster. She also had vaguely defined ludicrously overpowered superpowers and was legit one of the most powerful members of the Defenders, which is saying something given who else was on the team.

You think there'd be tons of rule 34 of her, but I can't even find something as simple as fan art aside from a single pixel art image that comes up in google.

That one mutant with five mouths - one normal, two on shoulder blades, two on palms. I can't even remember her name.

I wouldn't call them "obscure", but it's been a very long time since we've seen a proper, competent Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. They started off as the X-Men's arch enemies, then they took on kind of a Team Rocket role, and now they're an afterthought. Now that Secret Wars is over it would be the perfect time for a new Brotherhood to debut.

Marvel has a superpowered professional wrestling federation called Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation. There's an all-female stable in the fed called The Grapplers. Aside from Carol, who was just temporarily associated and not a full member, they were cool as fuck as a concept. I would read the fuck out of an ongoing featuring them or just the UCWF in general.

He's not really "relevant", since he was just intended for one story originally, but that one story is pretty famous. Enough people know him from that that he's not quite "obscure". It's kind of like those mobsters in Batman Year One. They haven't been in a lot since then, but they're still pretty well known from that one story.

Don't have a picture since I can't grab anything on a work computer but I'm really surprised nobody's gotten more mileage out of Flag-Smasher.

Hell, given how lefty and "borders shouldn't exist" a lot of current cape writers are you think they'd be down with a guy like that. Even willing to give him a more sympathetic portrayal.

>>79110696
I feel like all of the Serpent Society gets kind of the same thing at least as far as the individual members go. I like the concept in that it really feels like a group and that everyone can strike off on their own and it feels natural (as opposed to maybe what they're doing with the Wrecking Crew right now). But outside of a few, mainly Diamondback, they just kind of exist.

I'm really surprised Marvel never tried to use the BAD Girls to leech off of BoP's success.

This guy isn't super, super obscure but he certainly would be if Ellisbolts hadn't give him that moment X number of years ago.

He's also great. Tough, weathered old cape resident in the Navajo nation who is broadly disinclined to heroism but willing to throw down when the occasion demands it. A kind of 'we all mind our own business and I'll mind you don't hurt nobody' attitude.

Speaking of Death Adder and Firebrand, a LOT of the guys and gals killed by Scourge of the Underworld could be pretty cool, either as serious villains or comedic characters.

Cases in point:
>Basilisk: Teamed up with Death Adder after his resurrection and almost killed the Punisher.
>Mirage: Sinister Six aside, he was literally my favorite part of Superior Foes of Spider-Man. He's such a lovable loser
>Lascivious: Made Spider-Man fall in love with Frank Castle
>Turner D Century: Hasn't done anything since his resurrection, but goddamn, his whole MO is that everyone who isn't living the post-industrial revolution/pre-World War I lifestyle should be fucking executed. It's amazing.
>Others who I think could be cool, but can't think of anything specific to say about them: Megatak, Commander Kraken, The Vamp, Gamecock (just for the lulz).

None of those see really obscure, especially Boom Boom... 'Not part of the main team' and 'obscure' aren't really the same thing. All three of those have had runs at least partially centered on them and been in cartoons.

Stella Stargaze, villain from the FemForce comics that AC Comics publishes.

>Stella Thompson was a girl who was born in poverty and raised in Apopka, West Virginia. She was extremely beautiful and used this to get herself out of this poverty. She won a beauty pageant that led her to a job where she became the assistant of a stage magician.
>The magician, The Great Leolani, was working on an item called the Hypnotic Eye that could plant post-hypnotic suggestions in women so he could take advantage of them. He tried the Hypnotic Eye only to find out that it worked only on men. Stella Thompson stole the Hypnotic Eye and used it to snag rich and handsome men around the world to gain their wealth.
>Eventually, she started a company called Stargaze Enterprises at New-York, and became Stella Stargaze, talk show host. She used the Hypnotic Eye on her guests to reveal deep secrets on her show, which made her even more popular and rich.

Speaking of No-Girl, why the hell doesn't she have a body yet? I know being a brain in a jar is her gimmick, but there's like +20 smart superheroes that would do that shit for free.
>>
>>79142818

Because being a brain in a jar is visually striking, and that matters more than in-universe logic, really. I would like to see a story about her with a body sometime, though. Maybe if her veins lit up she would still look interesting enough that they'd keep her around. She was implied to be pretty depressed before she was a brain in a jar... Maybe she hasn't been fixed yet because she thinks she deserves to be a brain forever?

Generic Man.

He's from Keith Giffen's Heckler. He has the ability to turn things around him into simplified abstract concepts. Like he can reduce a newspaper cluttered with stories he's holding into just a blank piece of paper save for the word news written on it. I mean, just look at his picture and the potential stories you could EASILY come up with. Why hasn't Grant Morrison tackled this character yet is beyond me.

man, that guy sounds awesome. You could put him in front of the world's most secure terminal and he could reduce it to a generic 'future' computer with no password or protection.

You could put him in front of someone dying from some specific designer disease, hand him a tetanus shot, and he could turn them into 'generic disease' and 'generic cure' that would fix the victim instantly.
