They can’t all be winners! Who’s the metahuman that had superpowers so lame, you had to turn around and walk away slowly?
Matter Eater Lad!
Does Tenzil count if he’s an alien and not a metahuman? -C
Don’t get mad: Kite Man
Yeah definitely Arm-Fall-Off-Boy.
I mean look at him just
cough Duke Thomas cough
After extensive consideration, I’m going to have to say Chunk from the painful pre-Mark Waid stretch of Wally West’s Flash series. His powers are literally super-fatness and super-eating. To his credit, William Messner-Loebs does try to give him some more nuance than Mike Baron did, but there’s only so much that can be done with the concept.
These are all very solid choices, I’m trying to think of who else could be on this list.
Really, most of the Legion of Substitute Heroes could make this list. Color Kid’s ability to change the color of things probably stands out the most useless. Arms-Fall-Off-Boy could at least beat you with his detached limb.
I don’t know if I’m remembering this correctly, but there was a female character that would grow her nails fast. Maybe I’m thinking of Meg from Family Guy…
Ah, you’re right, that is a terrible power… also right in Meg being the one to have it.
Hmm, might have to join in with Behemoth on Matter Eater Lad, but as far as general powers go (that are a bit more normal), I’ve always thought elasticity to be strange to have, too, lol.
Nails. The character I was thinking of was Nails
