There is always the debate of who is the greatest superhero ever created.  I pose a differant take...who do you think is the worst?  Please explain why.

Personally, my vote is Aquaman.  Of all the awesome powers that are embewed upon comic book creations, I think being able to talk to fish is the extreme short end of the stick.  Yes, I know he can swim fast and breath under water, but still...on a scale of cool to lame, that rates Rosie O' Donald.

Justice League Unlimited was able to make him cool. They gave him a Trident, a hook hand, and a "Don't Fuck With Me" attitude that more than made up for all the previous years of lameness.

I think the worst superhero would have to be the both of the Wonder Twins.

My choice would have to be Deadman. The guy has the power to be dead......what? From what I understand he's dead he has to figure out who killed him and to do that he goes to monks in Tibet? Yeah he's got the power to take over bodies but other than that he's.....well....dead.

And one other thing about Aquaman. Yeah he's fucking lame but who does he have behind his back? One of the most powerful armies in all the world, the army of Atlantis. There have been a lot of comics where Aquaman was pretty tired of the shit land dwellers have been doing and had a huge fucking army out declaring war. Yeah, his powers suck, but you don't fuck with the leader of the most advanced army in the entire world.

Deadman is awesome- hiis Vertigo appearances are grand.

Also, there are no bad characters, just bad writers.

Wonder Woman.  The indestructible bracelets, lasso of truth, and invisible Jet?  yes she had super strength and was tied in to Greek mythology but the overwhelming amount of feminism bothered me.  Sorry but if you think of how it over exploits feminism it is strikingly similar to Mr. Mitzfa or whatever his name was on who wants to be a super hero.  His little Star of David ping pong paddle is about as lame as an invisible jet

I agree that JLU made Aquaman a hell of a lot cooler than the comic form...but the subject was "Worst Comic Superhero."
BTW, I like SignNinja's arguement...messing with Aquaman with his army behind him was about as smart as making fun of Mike Tyson's voice.  But by himself I stand by my statement that Aquaman was the lamest.

...which is a throwback to the 40's version of Captain America, as well as keeping in line with New Cap's character before he donned the suit.

Just saying.

Captain Novalin, a la the SNES game with the same name. He had the power to have Diabetes! Not joking, that's his power! And he had to inject Novalin in him and fight off Diabetes monsters!

Video game hero, not a comic hero.

My next nominee: Marvel Comics' Squirrel Girl.

In Squirrel Girl's defense, she did kick the crap out of Dr. Doom. That's got to be one of the most embarrasing things to ever happen to him.

Citizens: "Hey look it's Dr. Doom! Didn't he get beaten by Squirrel Girl?"
Doom: "Oh god I won't ever live that down will I?"
Jason Biggs: "Now you know how I feel."

How about Arm-Fall-Off Boy? Lame and self-explainitory but this guy actually has a cult-like fan base.
