Doctor Demonicus is great. He’s, like, what, one of only two people not to get super-powers from radiation (I think Rick Jones was briefly the other one)?

But after that wonderful description, I’m going to start reading his dialog in the voice of Cobra Commander.

Maybe he ought to become an enemy of Devil Dinosaur and Moon Girl.

Maybe have him be an enemy of Squirrel Girl? All that bad luck when fighting her, but the moment another hero tries to stop them he defeats them without even realizing it.

“Damn that Squirrel Girl! Hiding from my new robot army! Forcing me to waste time with these strangely dressed police officers with X’s on their uniforms.”

We need more of this kind of villain. There are not enough world conquerors and gimmick thieves in comics nowadays, and the world is poorer for it.

Couldn’t agree more, Grazzt. There aren’t nearly enough of what I call “bank robbers with ray guns” in comics these days. Guys who aren’t out to kill the hero, who don’t want to rule the world, none of that. They just want to commit crimes with the gadget they’ve invented and make lots of money.

There was a great plot in one of Marvel’s crossovers. I think it was the one where Daredevil became the leader of the Hand and sort of evil…?

But basically Paladin had some sort of heroes for hire mission and came in contact with the Alchemists gun. A supervillian who had a gun that could change anything into another element and used it to rob banks instead of just making gold.

Then it’s a few moments later when he realises screw the mission, get the gun. Good fun.

According to the Marvel Handbook, Doctor Demonicus is a criminal geneticist who (i) appeared in a Godzilla comic (ii) used giant mutated animals to “plunder and pillage” and (iii) exposed himself to radiation in a bid to acquire superhuman powers, only giving himself a heaping dose of skin cancer instead. Also? His legal name is Douglas. I think we’re done here.
