List Rules Vote up the most absurd comic character no one takes seriously.

For every Spider-Man, Batman, Superman or Wolverine there's a Robin and a Sentry and a Hawkeye. And those guys are also great. But for every Hawkeye there's also an Aqualad or *shudder* Matter-Eater.

Those Heroes and Villains so lame they rarely last an issue. Those ideas we can't believe got past the idea stage, much less past the drawing board and into our comics. Some of these characters even became cult favorites... somehow (looking at you Maggot and Bat-Mite). 

These are the 31 Comics Characters no one takes seriously, vote up the most ridiculous.
