His name is unfortunately close to ‘malodorous’, which might be why he can’t get any respect, universe-controlling or not.

Also, Man-Skirt. As Marvel’s Hercules has proved, this demonstrates ultimate manliness (and also easy access).

And yet – of course – for all of his semi-phenomenal cosmic powers, it would take about two of him in order to make Rex the Wonder Dog break a sweat.

I like in those stats when “Weight” is listed as “Variable.” I mean, mine is too – are we talking about before or after the holidays?

For Maaldor it’s always a holiday. Obviously heworks out as-and-when.

So why do villains with swords make the cut moreso than people using bows and arrows?

The part of this that interests me the most is the Superman-Joker teamup. That sounds like fun.

Anybody that can force a Phantom Stranger/Superman/Joker to go solve their mental illness issues is automatically awesome. :)

His ginger perm will destroy us all.

I *just* read his early-to-mid-Nineties throwdown with Will Payton, The Worst Starman. It was kind of ignoble.

He deserves a third chance.

I could see him being reinvented as a type of noble conqueror, who wants to rule the universe because he truly believes he’d make it a better place. He’d be a good foe for the Justice League (if they ever get their shit together), the Legion, or the R.E.B.E.L.S.

Zenrage,

I trust “make the cut” was not an intended pun, was it? 😉

As for why it happens — you got me.

“Maaldor The Darklord” sounds like someone’s black metal garage band.

I look forward to seeing them at the Boathouse with Daken and Romulus opening for them.

Marvel had the Beyonder wondering what Good and Evil and Life was…

DC had Maaldor knowing what Evil was and that Life was the little squishy things he could obliterate with a thought but preferred to hit with his sword.

“Ha-HA! That was a GOOD Fight! Because you managed to knock me over I’ll obliterate your world instantly rather than slowly enough you’d notice!”

It wasn’t intended.

Occupation: Conqueror
Marital Status: Single

I now have the mental image of Maaldor the Darklord being introduced by Bob Eubanks on a cheesy game show.

“Our next contestant is Maaldor the Darklord. Maaldor, it says here you’re a conqueror.”

“Yes, and I can destroy entire galaxies with a thought.”

“Whooa! And ladies, Maaldor is single, too!”

The cast of _Hollywood Squares_ would spend the entire game cracking manskirt jokes.

I’ve noticed that when DC wants to throw a few jobber supervillains at someone they often pick them based on obscurity rather than power.
This is a horrible mistake because it leads to things like Green Arrow and Green Lantern beating a guy made by combining all the best traits of superman and batman off panel along with several other powerful guys that really should have been an epic fight or even a loss(see whatever the name of that horrible miniseries where Green Arrow kills Prometheus after tracking him down… somehow, despite Prometheus lairing in a pocket dimension only he and Lex Luthor can get to).
