List Rules Superheroes with the silliest powers and names initially featured in comic books. No villains!

Ridiculous comic book superheroes come in all shapes and sizes. And these are the characters voted by many to be the most ridiculous superheroes of all time. Sometimes it's not the stupid heroes fault; they were written to serve a very specific comic book function, and no one had a plan for the character after that. Other times they were just a product of a period of time where they were more appropriate. Even so, many of these ridiculous comic book characters should probably have been written out of the series long before they were.

Sometimes these stupid characters just outgrew the context they were in. Are these stupid superhero names enough to make you never want to read comic books? If so, vote on the worst ones here so that people have an inkling of what NOT to do. 

Who are the most.... stupid superheroes ever? You decide.
