Superman Vs. Mister Sinister

You know, at this point, I’m seriously starting to wonder how many superhero and supervillain names from the House of Ideas were actually original ideas…

Nathaniel Essex's first attempt at supervillany was rather embarrassing. :P

Nathaniel Essex’s first foray into the realm of supervillany was as embarrassment for everyone involved. 😛

For those who’re keeping score, the original DC Comics version of Mister Sinister made his debut way back in Superman #16 (May 1942) by Jerry Siegel, Wayne Boring, Leo Nowak, Fred Ray, and John Sikela.

    Don’t be too hard on the creators. Good names are hard to come up with. Especially bad guy names. We almost ended up with “Doom the Dentist” after all 🙂

    I’ve never heard of that one before..tell me more! 🙂

    I have heard of Doctor Doom: Pediatrician before, though:

    While we’re on the subject, there’s a real Doctor Doom. Travis Doom, who has a Ph.D. in Computer Science:

    By his own admission, he was motivated to earn a doctorate just so he could call himself that. 😀

    Hey, if my last name was “Doom,” I would do exactly what he did.

    So would I. I have an M.Sc., so it would’ve been a nice final step. 🙂
