Is his name some kind of weird, failed pun on “Rubik’s”, as in the cube, or something??

Glorious indeed. I always knew beavers & chipmunks were bad, but one that holds the Sucker Stick ( no double-entendre,please) is just the definition of evil!

He appears to be a beaver. Either that or he has a toilet lid frou-frou thingie stuck to his back.

A beaver with “Crabsters”. And a “Sucker Stick”.

It’s like everything my parents warned me about when I went away to university, all in one suspiciously moustachioed package.

Those Green Lantern Corps books from the 80s were pure gold. Have they been reprinted?

His name is a tip of the hat to Ub Iwerks, Walt Disney’s early partner and one of the pioneers of American animation. IIRC, this was confirmed in an editor’s note at the time.

He’s named after UB Iwerx, the original partner of Walt Disney.

I still remember the original Ch’p stories, where he was a realistic animal and drawn by Don Newton, and then Englehart and Staton retconned him into a funny animal.

Wait, are you saying Walt Disney invented the Rubik’s Cube?

You wouldn’t think a foot tall space beaver in a bathrobe with the aforementioned Patio Lantern of Doom would have a lot of, um, command ability. Does he just threaten to chew your knees off? At the same time, I’m a little disappointed he only got 82% RTWD rating.

Now I’m thinking about that issue of “Mosaic” where Ch’p got run over by a bus, and I’ll be bummed out for the rest of the day.

Is the Rex the Wonder Dog rating supposed to be missing?

Nevermind. My browser was apparently acting up. Sigh. Just because I opened a dozen tabs at a time, I still expect everything to load.

I still hope Snow-flame appears in the WHO’s WHO. A fight between the god of cocain & Rex the motherfucking wonder-dog would be so epic even Wolfman’s Anti-Monitor would freeze in fear ( the Johns version is just a jobber…)

@Cookie McCool : well don’t forget that one of Billy Batson’s main enemies is a caterpillar with a radio, so Dr Ubx is still more threatening

So, is his name Ub’x, or U’bx? Or is it interchangeable? Because I see both spellings on that page.

Ub’x is his real name; U’bx is his supervillain name.

U’bx is a misprint.

U’bx is the Earth-2 equivalent of oh hell I give up. Loved this run of GLC though.

Space animals always command respect and admiration. Hell, I’ve seen that Red Lantern cat mentioned a bunch of times places. He’s the next big thing, I’m telling you.

@Skemono: That’s ridiculous! Ub’x wears glasses. U’bx.. DOESN’T wear glasses. I don’t know how many more times I have to tell you.

Doctor Ub’x was the only being in the entire *multiverse* who managed to survive the Crisis on Infinite Earths without being “re-written”!
