Some superhero origins are just lame. Not all heroes get bitten by radioactive spiders, were the last survivor on a destroyed planet, or survived a science experiment gone wrong to get crime-fighting, world-saving powers. Some heroes enter the vigilante game without any pizzazz, without a modicum of sense, or with a just plain lame origin story.
This list is a compilation of the lamest superhero origin stories of all time. Keep in mind, the focus is on lame origins, not necessarily lame heroes.
