    Kelly Kooliq was your average angsty teen who hated the world, but she had something other angsty teens didn’t: the ability to reorder reality on a whim. When a teenage bully mouthed off to her, she turned him into a tree (which was then burned to ash by another angsty superteen). She made her psychiatrist question his sanity, turned her parents into happy-go-lucky idiots, caused numerous fatal car accidents, and nearly destroyed the universe. Eventually, she gave up her powers and became a normal teen, but her little sister Donna gained the reality-warping powers instead, and immediately used the power to destroy a human life.

    Peter is a good boy. He wants nothing more than to save all the little mutant children and protect them with the help of his friend Nanny. Peter worries about poor little mutants who don’t have any parents to protect them - of course, if they do have parents, it’s Peter’s job to kill the parents so he and Nanny can protect them. And that’s why he’s called Orphan-Maker.

    What makes Peter’s story particularly sad is that he has a child’s mind in an adult body, and he Nanny completely controls him, yet no one ever tries to save Orphan-Maker, they just punch him like they would any other super villain. Still, he’s one of the scariest villains to meet if you’re a small child with superpowers.

    Because they all hail from America, the Avengers get the lion’s share of American readers' attention, but Europe has its own superhero team: EuroForce. And the best gunfighter on that team lives in a little boy's body, but actually has the mind of a 60-year-old Polish general, Mikhail Zamorska. Better known as the Baby Killer, Zamorska has been shooting people since his fingers could fit around the trigger of a gun, and no one wants to find themselves in front of his barrels.

    The X-Men are one of Marvel’s premiere super teams, and the Hellfire Club is one of their oldest and most steadfast enemies - yet 12-year-old human Kade Kilgore took down and replaced the Hellfire Club’s Inner Circle all by himself. He also made the X-Men’s lives a living hell for a year. The first step in his grand scheme of global chaos: killing his businessman father and recruiting the most evil little kids in the world, including the youngest member of the Frankenstein family. If this kid ever decides to take villainy seriously, the Marvel Universe is in for a world of trouble.
