Some comic book villains truly are lame – and yes, we know they are often meant to be joke characters. However, they are still meant to be at least moderately threatening – at least to civilians, if not the heroes they go up against.
Worryingly, there are actually some villains in comic books that YOU – yes, YOU – could defeat!
In this article, we'll take a look at some villains so inept, so weak, so clumsy and so useless that the average real-world human could defeat them with relative ease!
Here are five comic book villains that YOU could defeat (this is assuming they don't have any assistance etc).
There have been a number of characters named Stilt-Man in Marvel Comics – Wilbur Day and two unnamed criminals – and none of them were exactly A-list. However, they were at least competent at the level they were operating.
And then came another unnamed individual – this time a female – going by the name Lady Stilt-Man.
Not only did she have a ridiculous name (surely it should just have been "Stilt-Lady"?), she was also considerably clumsier than her predecessors – to the extent that she often essentially defeated herself.
Through complete incompetence, during an encounter with Deadpool (who had removed said manhole cover) for example, she fell down a manhole cover and got stuck there.
So, essentially, all you need to do to defeat her is (easily) avoid her ridiculously clumsy attempts at attacking you, then run towards any kind of hole or uneven ground – she'll defeat herself on your behalf.
