10. Zechariah


(Astounding Wolfman)


Robert Kirkman’s Astounding Wolfman is one of his most underrated comics. The story of Gary Hampton, CEO turned werewolf superhero, is one of violence and fun and tragedy.

After being mauled by a wolf, Gary begins his horrible transformation into a monster of the night. But he isn’t alone in his quest. A mysterious stranger named Zechariah appears and says that he can help. Turns out that Zechariah is a vampire who has been around for decades, and he wants only to help Gary be the best that he can.

Except that maybe that isn’t actually the case. Zechariah may have helped train Gary to become a superhero, but he also kinda - SPOILERS - murders Gary’s wife and frames Gary for it. Oh and he begins training Gary’s daughter to kill him. I guess he’s kind of a huge jerk then, huh. But as a major villain for a great little series, Zechy sure works well.

Total jerk, great villain.
